Classic Galley Goes Glam
The classic galley kitchen of this 1960s ranch was lightened and brightened when Keith Gegg, of Gegg Design & Cabinetry, replaced the old blue-painted metal cabinets with white custom cabinets with beaded inset. The base cabinets have extra depth to create a flush look. With no windows in the space, the cabinetry around the sink was fitted with glass fronts for a more open appearance. Since the galley kitchen could not accommodate an island, a unique curved walnut banquette provides seating and serves as a transition between the kitchen and hearth room.

For a narrow space, the kitchen does not lack in equipment or design detail. The space includes a fully incorporated 36” refrigerator with two freezer drawers, range top, double ovens and dishwasher. Design elements include a custom arched hood, honed Danby marble countertops, polished Danby backsplash tiles, a custom-arched stone border below the hood as well as a custom-made knife block and various pull outs for storage.

Why the judges love it:
We really appreciate how open and refreshing this galley kitchen feels. The banquette provides a unique solution for additional seating. A beaded inset on the white cabinetry adds interest to the classic white kitchen.
