One end of the galley kitchen holds the double wall ovens and cooktop, as well as plenty of storage, to create a step-saving cooking zone. Equipping the space with plenty of drawers is a favorite trick of designers since drawers bring the contents into view with one smooth pull. The deepest drawers are ideal for storing pots and pans close to where cooking happens.
