Ideas for Small Kitchens

Modern kitchen

A small kitchen turns into a cheerful galley-style dream, complete with state-of-the-art appliances that are far from compact.

The homeowners of this windowless kitchen wanted to give it a bright, stylish, and contemporary look with space-saving features and enhanced cooking efficiency. Faced with limited space, a redesign incorporated full-size appliances, to accomodate their passion for entertaining family and friends.

One of the smartest features is a stylish wet bar right outside the kitchen, which prevents congestion while entertaining. Glass-front cabinetry further enhances the illusion of space while allowing the homeowners to display their all-white dinnerware and serving pieces. Convenient pullout cabinets for spices on both sides of the cooktop’s hood, as well as lazy Susan shelving features in each corner cabinet, maximize storage, allow great visibility of the contents, and provide easy access to tools and equipment.

Small spaces can be grand by using color and design to give the feel of openness. The homeowners give a lot of credit for the success of their makeover to researching and shopping online from start to finish. They felt it saved time and allowed them to get precisely what they wanted—right down to the cast-iron cookware, which is a treasured find for this couple who love to cook.
