Galley kitchens typically are arranged like a narrow hall with cabinets on one or both sides. While the arrangement can be convenient and save space, these kitchens can sometimes feel cramped. The lighting you choose for your galley kitchen can make all the difference.
By removing one wall of your galley kitchen and creating an island, you can give the space a much more open feel as Joe Human of Designs By Human did here. Two clean looking pendants illuminate the island. All-white cabinets reflect plans of light while blue base cabinets provide an unexpected pop of color.
Kelly Taylor of Kelly Taylor Interior Designs selected a linear backsplash tile to complement this open galley kitchen. It picks up on the warm tones of the wood floor, while also relating to the white cabinets. The result is neutral but also adds movement to the space. The space features recessed lights and a simple pendant hangs above the sink.
While all-white kitchens have been popular in recent years, try combining warm wood tones with crisp white surfaces. This results in a kitchen that feels both cozy and modern. Recessed lights provide task lighting as needed, while a dramatic linear wood fixture feels like part of the architecture.
Black and white always looks fresh and modern for a kitchen design. Complement the look with under cabinet lighting, which works especially well with a white backsplash as it reflects the light. Minimal linear and circular pendants look sleek and make the space feel taller.
A sleek recessed linear light provides a modern edge to this galley kitchen design by Joe Human of Designs By Human. Marble slab walls, modern millwork and white surfaces contribute to the high-end look. Custom millwork can be worth the price for a tailored, built-in effect that maximizes a small space.
Painting your galley kitchen all white is a great way to make the space feel more open, as Jill Shevlin of Jill Shevlin Design did here. Try coordinating the finish of your fixture with your hardware, and stick with clean lines for both. Incorporating recessed lighting can supplement your other lighting sources.
Even though galley kitchens are notoriously narrow and sometimes cramped, with the right finishes and the right lighting you can make your kitchen feel much more open. From semi-flush mounts to recessed light fixtures, there are plenty of options in a range of styles that can work for a galley kitchen. We hope these tips have helped to guide you in your selection.
