The Galley or Parallel Kitchen

Previously, we have discussed about the following kitchen types:

The One wall kitchen and L-Shaped Kitchen are some of the most common layouts used while making kitchens for Indian Households.

An uncommon layout is the Galley or Parallel Kitchen layout where the kitchen is composed of two units placed on two parallel walls of the kitchen area.

As seen in the above diagram, the entire work area is divided into two separate work zones with a passage in between them. The Galley Kitchen, if designed properly, can be the best in terms of utilization of space and work efficiency, especially in apartments / homes where the kitchen area available is limited.

Features of Galley Type Kitchen

  1. Efficient utilization of limited space
  2. Everything can be within reach while preparing meals
  3. A lot of space can be created for storage even in small areas
  4. A properly designed Galley Kitchen can eliminate the need to walk between the two work areas to a large extent
  5. If space is available, an island can be made in between the two work areas
  6. Lots of countertop space available
  7. If the kitchen is small, it can become difficult for more than one person to occupy the kitchen area
  8. A dining table can usually not be placed in this type of layout due to lack of sufficient space between the two work areas
