Adding a small cart as an extra work surface might be an effective alternative, although in most cases there's sufficient counter space in a galley to eliminate the need for this — unless it's a specialized addition such as a butcher block.
Assess your space. Though galley kitchens work best in small spaces, they can also be good for medium-sized kitchens, such as the one pictured here. However, be aware that if the opposing runs are too far apart, the kitchen will lose its efficiency. (This kitchen gets it right.)
You can enhance the safety of your layout — particularly where the corridor is very narrow — by planning your kitchen with the sink and cooktop on the same run. Though less efficient than having those features opposite each other, this arrangement focuses your appliances in one area, so you won't have to turn to the opposing run with potentially dangerous items in your hands.
Finally, lighting is key. Well-placed and oversized lighting will soften the kitchen's look and create the impression of more space.
