Efficient Galley Layout

Michael's plan for the 7-by-10 foot 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.

Takeaway Tip: If you don't have a big budget to remodel, don't worry -- using existing space smartly will make your kitchen seem a lot bigger than it really is.
