These small kitchens make excellent use of space, and the interior design decisions make them seem even bigger. Check out some pictures:
Modern touches like the oven overhead and the sleek tile backsplash make the space feel updated and ready to use.
The red barstools add personality to an otherwise bland space and offer a perfect alternative to an eat-in kitchen or dining room.
The open floor plan in this layout makes the kitchen seem larger, because it's not limited to a confined space.
A window over the sink lets fresh light in, opening up the kitchen.
It's not for everyone, but bold design like this tile, backsplash, and opposite wall make your kitchen fun enough that size doesn't even matter. Caution: don't use too many dark colors or they will start to make the space seem smaller - use them as accents instead.
