The Brief

Faced with a narrow room  the designer at Buxton Woodworks rose to the challenge and came up with a great double galley design, that not only really maximises the space but also includes some interesting design touches.  Gently curved corner cabinetry adds flow to the layout, avoiding the corridor feel that can be associated with galley kitchens.  Benefiting from natural light from 2 windows the contrasting granite worktops have lots of reflective appeal.

Designer's Tips

The granite worktops are a key feature of the design with inset drainer grooves around the sink and shaped to echo the contours of the curved peninsula.  The clients were keen to have a seating area in the kitchen but mindful of the space were concerned this would not be possible.  By adding a small curved peninsula with an overhang the designer has created a handy place to sit which the clients are delighted with.
