TriBeCa Apartment: Galley Kitchen Design Done Right
Welcome to TriBeCa, Manhattan’s most expensive neighborhood, where the average home sells for $3.85 million. But TribeCa apartments are by no means average.
Enter this spacious floor-through apartment at 58 Thomas Street, a boutique condo building located in the historic district of TriBeCa. The apartment is drenched in sunlight through oversized windows and it is a perfect place to entertain.
What about the kitchen? We choose to highlight this particular apartment, as it is a great example of how you can style a narrow kitchen into a true chef’s kitchen. Galley kitchens, which are kitchens consisting of two parallel runs of units forming a corridor in which to work, are a reality of urban life and very common in NYC.
While some home cooks might prefer airy kitchens with an over-dimensional kitchen island, many professional chefs actually love this kitchen layout, as it resembles the professional kitchen environment and enhances safety and efficiency during cooking.
The choice of light colors is perfect for the kitchen as it makes the space look and feel bigger. The minimalist design with its clean lines, light colors and uncomplicated fixtures help create an illusion of order and space.
We also love the chic cabinetry with under-lighting and of course the kitchen comes with top-of-the-range stainless steel appliances from Viking.
