Speaking of romance, another way to add to the whimsical, rapturous feel of a Victorian kitchen is through artwork. Sumptuous still-life paintings of fruits, wines and cheeses can add an elegant and artistic touch to the space, while other touches like flowing, floral patterned curtains in soft colors or elegant chair cushions in velvet or velour can help create a welcoming space filled with beautiful touches.
The average galley kitchen design will place the sink on one side of the kitchen and the range on the other. This allows for easy back-and-forth during food preparation. Some galley kitchens have been remodeled to remove a wall and create a bar area with seating on one side of the kitchen. This is an interesting option for homeowners who enjoy casual entertaining.
Taking its inspiration from the elegant, romantic Victorian era in Europe, Victorian kitchen design often features luxurious materials, antique furniture, soothing color palettes and intricate details. One of the hallmarks of Victorian kitchen design is an open kitchen space. Open U-shaped and L-shaped designs are common, with a kitchen island (a common inclusion in many Victorian kitchen designs) providing extra space for food preparation and storage.
