angled cabinets at end, contoured counter and backsplash; Chef Michael Lomonaco's plan for his 7-by-10 foot Manhattan galley kitchen was simple: use every available space efficiently, without changing the basic layout. So he moved the sink faucet into the corner and the microwave to over the range—the only configuration changes he made—freeing up counter space for food prep.

Storage Solutions The star of Lomonaco's new kitchen is really the smart storage, an asset for any small space. What looks like an ordinary cherry-panel wall turns out to be a pull-out pantry. The 15-inch-wide, floor-to-ceiling shelving allows for ample space and easy access while maintaining the kitchen's streamlined look. Check out some of Lomonaco's other storage solutions.
Open Shelving with Tiffany Blue walls...very classy Shelf Solutions - use 1/2" pine boards with 1 1/2" pieces of flat stock pine attached to the front of each shelf giving the illusion of hefty (and pricey) shelving. Open shelves help make this galley kitchen seem larger and are a great way to store kitchen essentials. -- this would look cute in my dining room!
Paint inside of shelves diff colour!
I don't know why it never occured to me but it might just be the best kitchen solution to knock some holes in the walls an open it up to the living room... as soon as I get the time and money...
