Open Concept Galley Kitchen
The majority of the homes in the Arcadia neighborhood of central Phoenix have closed in galley kitchens that are ready to be updated for today’s lifestyles. Open concept kitchens are what most people are looking for to create a more inclusive space for entertaining family and friends. This home’s Arcadia neighborhood kitchen remodel was a great example of how creating an open concept galley kitchen could work for you.
Transforming an Arcadia Neighborhood Galley Kitchen
Our homeowners were ready to update their galley kitchen in the modern transitional style that they had started in the rest of their home. The new open galley kitchen includes updated cabinet features, quartz countertops, an open floor plan and beautiful new wood floors to unite it with the family room.
This kitchen remodel focused on updating the original galley kitchen, as well as creating a more functional and open concept floor plan for entertaining friends and family. We had a few challenges to deal with: A laminate veneer from a previous owner’s remodel covered the home’s original cabinets; the counters still had their original tile finish, and the homeowners had completed a DIY project in which they installed natural slate in years past.
New cabinetry was chosen to complement the color and door style of existing built-ins that the family had installed in the adjacent family room. The quartz counters emulate the modern concrete look with a glass backsplash to create reflective surfaces and add color. To maximize the functional cabinet features, numerous new components were added to the plan including pot drawers, recycle/trash cabinet, vertical storage at the bake center and a spacious pantry cabinet with roll-out trays.
One of the most unique features of this open concept galley kitchen is the new induction cooktop. This style of cooktop heats only the pot or pan without the stove surface getting hot or creating additional heat in the kitchen.
