/ Knowledge Base

What is a Galley Kitchen?

A galley kitchen is a narrow kitchen that is shaped like a narrow corridor with shelves, cabinets, and appliances on both sides of the walkway. Both sides may open up into the living space, or one end could be closed off with a wall or pantry.

Since a narrow kitchen has a small footprint, it is perfect for houses with minimal square footage. It also works well as a secondary kitchen in a mother-in-law apartment or guest house.

  • Saves a lot of space and promotes minimalism
  • Allows you to renovate without excessive spending
  • Streamlines the cooking process from start to finish


  • Only allows one cook to work comfortably at a time
  • Does not add much resale value even after a remodel
  • Has very little storage space and no kitchen island

As you dream up your ideal galley kitchen designs, you will have all the information needed to hire contractors to handle the project. Using your vision of the final results, they can provide you with a timeline and estimate, including materials and labor costs.

/ Tips & Advice

Ways to Maximize the Space

Install Narrow Cabinets

You can maximize your walking space without impacting your work area by installing narrow cabinets on one side of your kitchen. Above those cabinets, put in open shelves that let you keep all the spices, tools, and other items that you use the most.

Get an Undermount Sink

Huge farmhouse sinks do not work well in these kitchens, so go with a smaller one instead. Beyond that, make sure it is an undermount model that will not take up any precious counterspace when installed.

Get Fancy with the Lighting

Installing bright white lighting can make your kitchen look bigger and provide the proper illumination for all of your tasks. Install lighting under cabinets, along the backsplash, and overhead to eliminate shadows and to keep the space looking its best.

Kitchen Renovation, Los Angeles

I hired Oasis Builders for my full kitchen renovation and I could not be more happy with the service Neev and his team provided. Home remodeling is always tough, you never know what to expect. But thanks to Neev, we got the job done and the results are SPECTACULAR! What sets Oasis Builders head and shoulders above the rest is the level of care, consideration and compassion. No matter what obstacle we faced, Neev was right there with a solution and how we could move the project forward.

Kitchen Renovation, Los Angeles

Oasis Builders and Neev are hands down the absolute BEST! Having never done any construction or renovations of any kind, the whole process of renovating a new kitchen was so daunting to think about, but from the moment we first met Neev, we were put at ease and we knew he was the one! Neev was the first contractor we met with when shopping out contractors, but we did our due diligence to meet with at least 5 more. He set the bar so high on our first meeting that no one else even came close! He was so personable and super professional, understood our vision while also offering such great insight on the project as a whole. Every step of the way he was right there with us, incredibly patient and making sure everything was going to plan. His team is very hard working, always professional and always helpful and everything they did looked just spectacular in the end. Highly, highly recommended!!
