My favorite kitchen was my galley kitchen, Its been a long time so I’m not sure of the dimensions, but I would say mid sized. Lots of countertop and cupboards. One side opened to the formal dining, one side for the family dining, home office side. Plenty of room for meal prep and the yearly jam canning.

I came to this story because we have just purchased a home with a galley kitchen. I always read the comments, and I don't think I've ever read so many positive reactions; not just for the "look" but for the functionality. My parents mid-1950s ranch had a galley kitchen, so our "new" kitchen makes the house already feel like "home." My one criticism of this story is that there are no hard numbers. In the first item, Assess Your Space, there are only comparative terms: small space, medium-sized kitchens, opposing runs too far apart, (This kitchen gets it right.) These terms aren't helpful, as the number of queries about dimensions show. Otherwise, great article.
