Small kitchens can be frustratingly crowded, especially narrow ones, but there are always a few design solutions that can turn a small space into a stylish one. The key to a successful sleek kitchen design is functionality. Storage and work surfaces are such necessities that can be installed on both or just one wall. When it comes to design, if you want the kitchen to look and feel bigger, it’s better to go for bright colors. If you wish, you can install colored cabinets that contrast with the floor, the opposite wall or the rest of the furniture. You can also use larger windows if the architecture allows, or even install a skylight. You can tuck a seating area closer to the window and still have a freestanding cabinet to store all your dishes or act as a pantry. Check out the ideas below for inspiration!
