Choose appliances to suit a small space. – Though a single-wall kitchen may be small, this doesn’t keep you from including the appliances you want. Many modern kitchen appliances are specifically designed for small spaces. For example, you can find integrated compact dishwashers, plus compact ovens, microwave ovens, steam ovens and warming drawers.

What better way to make color count than by applying it to a compact space? If you’re stuck with a small kitchen, give it a powerful punch! With a compact area, a little goes a long way, which can be a great thing for the budget. For example, just one wall of turquoise tile gives the kitchen below its signature look. Note how the magenta blossoms on each windowsill nicely complement the cool blue backsplash.

If you happen to have a small space in a suburban cape, you know how hard it could be to design functional areas that still looks stylish. Especially hard the task is when you’re designing a kitchen. We all know how hard it is to cook in a small kitchen. That’s why you need really thoughtful layout and enough storage solutions there. Otherwise, it won’t be comfortable to use. Even furniture manufacturers know that and create multi-functional compact kitchen units that help to solve these problems. Although these units are usually quite pricey so our way is to make kitchens comfortable with standard furniture solutions that make the most of a small space and creative design ideas.
