Who: Norma Zeiger of Entwine Interiors of Chicago
What: Galley kitchen measuring 8-by 17 1/2 feet redesigned to work for a family of four.

Tip: Tuck storage everywhere – cabinets under the table, a pantry next to a window and another in an adjacent hallway. And extend a countertop over a portion of the table that no diner would use anyway.
