Kitchens Case Studies: Expanded Galley Kitchen in Crownsville, MD

Friday, February 2nd, 2018 by Carly Weickgenannt

Challenge

Galley kitchens are common in older homes and are extremely inconvenient. They separate the cook from the rest of the home. They are very narrow and provide a lack of usable space. It is nearly impossible for two people to be in the kitchen at the same time. This home in particular was poorly designed so that the oven could not be completely opened without hitting the refrigerator. 

Solution

After putting up with their cramped kitchen for over a year, the homeowners decided to call Starcom for a solution to their frustrations. After our project coordinator evaluated their house, it was determined that the kitchen walls were not supporting and could be taken out without the installation of any support beams. We worked with the homeowners to design their dream kitchen in their budget. 

Quartz countertops served as the base of their modern design. The large island had a waterfall edge on both sides. The cabinets in the island are dark grey with simple fixtures. The same slow-close cabinets were used everywhere else in the kitchen but in white. A stainless brushed nickel apron sink sits below a window to the backyard. A large range was placed in the island with seating around the backside. The new design has tripled the usable space in the kitchen and allowed for the cook to be a part of entertaining. On time and on budget!
