Renovation of a Galley Kitchen
The owners of this galley kitchen in a charming older home in Highland Park needed more storage and work space, and they wanted to make their tired old kitchen sparkle. They chose new stainless appliances, rich cherry stained cabinetry and glass tile in subtle shades of lavender, green and cream for the backsplash that encircles the room. The owners also wanted an eat-in counter or table which was impossible in such limited space. They were persuaded to enlarge the doorway to the adjacent dining room and use that light filled room for eating. Now the kitchen is pretty enough to be in view even during a dinner party - and the lady of the house has a single seat "desk" at the end of the kitchen counter for breakfast or tea or planning.
