A ”Galley Kitchen”, also known as ”Parallel Shaped” kitchen, is a narrow kitchen that has counters on either side of a central walkway. These kitchens are generally thought of small in size but they can be quiet long although narrow.
If designed from the beginning, these kitchens are usually ergonomically effective as everything has to fit into the space. It is really easy to design a basic working triangle when designing a ”Galley Kitchen”. The compact work triangle is one of the advantages of a ”Parallel Shaped” kitchen. The design makes it stress free when you are preparing food as you do not have to move from one zone to another again & again. Every zone is just a few steps away from each other that results in effective cooking, preparing & washing.
