Laurent. Kitchen. September 13th , 2017.
Rustic cream kitchen with Aga and freestanding furniture. This rustic farmhouse kitchen is the perfect mix of old and new. Fitted cupboards flank a traditional range cooker, which is tucked into an alcove. Wooden beams and walls are painted ivory to keep the look as light as possible and a freestanding sideboard is a great storage alternative to wall cabinets. A butcher’s block-style table makes a great centerpiece and is practical for everyday use.
A more open-plan version of the galley kitchen is to have a run of kitchen units along one wall with a kitchen island unit opposite. As with the L-shaped kitchen, the island unit can form a divide between the working kitchen space and the dining area or living area. If space allows, the non-work side of a kitchen island is a great place to include bar stool seating or open shelves to store cookery books.
An L-shaped kitchen works well in an open-plan kitchen design. A row of kitchen units runs along one side of the ‘L’, while a row of low-level units runs along the jutting out portion of the ‘L’ – an easy way to create a barrier between the kitchen prep and dining or living zones.
Galley kitchens are the top choice of professional chefs and aspiring amateurs as they are super-efficient. Two runs of kitchen units run parallel to one another, putting everything within easy reach. This may not be the best solution for small kitchens, as you need an absolute minimum of 120cm between the runs of units to allow for safe traffic flow – 140cm if more than one person is likely to be cooking.
