Wondering how others would remodel or change things about this galley kitchen?

If there is space, I'd consider removing the built-in pantry and recess the refrigerator there. I would extend the counter on the sink side to the same lenght as the opposite wall. With the refrigerator moved, you can have more counter space, and maybe have a floor to ceiling pull out pantry. Here is a photo..but this has the oven there too. Or,you could make the kitchen a U shape and put the stove/oven on the back wall, and get a counter depth refrigerator and pantry on the right side galley wall. Here is a U also, but stove would be where the sink is in photo.

Great suggestions from Darzy. Is this a home that you own…will you stay here for awhile?

You can make it instantly more user-friendly by having your fridge door open the other way. You should be able to find instructions online for how to do it for your particular fridge.

If you move the fridge into the niche (if room allows), you could use some of that space for pantry. It would be the same depth as the other cabinets, so it would use up less floor space and have less visual weight.

Looks like it's too tight to try and make a u-shaped kitchen and leave the sink where it is. Sometimes galleys really are the best use of the space.

Definitely extend the counter on the sink side and if possible extend the length of the window by removing some upper cabinetry. This galley kitchen is similar to mine. Explode this room with a sense of openess by eliminating the pantry doors and opening it up so to becomes a focal point upon entering the kitchen. Good luck!
