Not Your Mother’s Kitchen

By Justin Dedio

Today’s kitchen design is beautiful and functional. The Galley kitchen is the latest trend that is becoming very popular. It’s a functional kitchen that is basically an extra large sink – actually we call it a work station, not a sink. You’re not just purchasing a marine grade, stainless steel sink; the unit has tons of accessories from cutting boards and colanders to mixing bowls and a grid for a drying rack. There is also a wash basin to use for washing dishes without filling up the entire sink. Waste goes right in the sink and down the garbage disposal for easy cleanup.

These work stations come in styles ranging from an 18” bar sink to 7’ long with drain board extensions and are usually placed in an island with an induction cook top right beside the sink. You can easily prep and cook without carrying a pot across the kitchen, saving time and space. The cook top comes in sizes from 18 to 36 inches wide, depending on your space and preference, with up to five burners.

The Galley is used in all stages of cooking – from prep to cleanup.  There are even accessories for entertaining, with accessories to hold drinks and ice, appetizers and more. These kitchens are great for people who do not cook a lot, but love to entertain. It also allows for collaborative cooking – two people can work in the same space without getting in each other’s way.

The Galley is great for today’s open floor plans. It utilizes every inch of space, giving more space along the walls for cabinetry. The drain is even installed to one side so the cabinet underneath has plenty of room. In our showroom, we have The Galley set up as a functional triangle-style kitchen as well as the galley style, along with displays of the accessories, which come in bamboo, black, grey or white.
