Galesburg, IL- Galley Kitchen Packed With Storage and Style
Posted: January 6, 2017
Before we tour this new kitchen, take a look at one of the before images of this home in Galesburg, IL. A “Galley” kitchen layout means that there are two parallel walls of cabinetry in a design. This kitchen has one wall that is home to the sink and refrigerator, and another that includes the range and hood. A window is located on the wall that connects the two. Ready for an update, and in need of added storage but wait… that brick looks pretty cool right? Spoiler alert: it stays!
The new design will more than double the available wall cabinet storage and unitize the base cabinets to their fullest. All of the wall cabinetry will also now stretch to the ceiling and be finished off with an angled crown molding. The original brick on this wall will become a part of the design. What a unique and fun textured element for this kitchen!
In place of a stand-alone range hood, this new hood option is mounted and surrounded by cabinetry. A suite of appliances from our Maytag® line are dependable and stylish. Full Stainless Steel kitchen appliances are not for everyone’s personal taste. A sleek, black finish with Stainless Steel accents give a great alternative to an all Stainless kitchen here. The new range includes 6.2 cu. ft. of oven capacity inside and has convection features. This range was designed, engineered, and assembled in the U.S.A. and like all new Maytag® models it comes with a 10 Year Limited Parts Warranty. Shop appliances from Village Home Stores here online.
Rustic Beech cabinetry in the “Stone” stain is from our Koch Classic line. The raised-panel door is named Hastings. We absolutely love kitchen remodeling because you are truly searching for the best working solution for an existing space. It is a challenge we are always excited to accept. There is no way to add to the overall width of this kitchen. Instead, the space must be used as best as it can be. How you fill a space with cabinets depends on the needs of who will be using it. Including large drawers and slideouts for storage was the best solution for this space.
A Luxury Vinyl Tile from our Tarkett Permastone® series has been installed in a 12″ x 24″ sized tile. The color is named Sandstone Maui Sand. Luxury Vinyl (LVT) is a great product for a kitchen area. Permastone® is made in the U.S.A. and comes with a Lifetime Limited Residential Warranty. It can be installed grouted or ungrouted. This Permastone® product was also recently ranked #1 by a leading consumer magazine, receiving excellent ratings in every flooring category and best vinyl flooring out of 12 different products. Surrounding the range on each side are large stacks of drawers perfect for pots and pans storage. On the far left side of the new range is a cabinet that opens up to reveal two slideout shelves within.
This kitchen is unique in that each wall has it’s own backsplash statement. The original brick from the kitchen ha been kept to the range wall. The texture and character the brick brings to the space gives the kitchen design a rustic feel. This is especially true when you see the knotty Rustic Beech wood characteristics in the cabinetry. Across the kitchen is a contrast of textures that help to refine the space and keep it leaning more Transitional than Rustic in style. Glossy White 3″ x 6″ Subway Tiles by Rittenhouse is accented with a mosaic deco line from Jeffery Court named Stream Stone.
The Engineered Quartz in this design is named Tundra. It perfectly blends the cabinetry, flooring, tile, and appliances together. A Blanco undermount sink in the Black finish offers two equal-size basins and a tall center divider. The sink wall is also home to the refrigerator and dishwasher and around the corner, a dry bar has been installed.
The base cabinets along this wall also include optimized storage space. On the far right of the sink wall of cabinetry is a door that opens to reveal two more slideout shelves. Slideout shelves from Koch Classic can be adjusted to roll at many heights. More shelves can also be added if you have shorter items to store and could use even more of that space. In a galley kitchen layout like this, placing a garbage can along the center wall would instantly grab your eye as you enter the kitchen. Instead, a pull-out waste basket is included in the base cabinet to the right of the sink. This category of cabinet can be ordered to reveal a large single bin or two smaller bins (shown).
