Splendid Small Kitchens And Ideas You Can Use From Them

Keeping wild aspirations in check can be difficult when viewing compact modern homes on the market. All can be going swimmingly until you walk to the end of a hallway and ask “Where is the kitchen?”, and the real estate agent opens out their arms and says “This IS the kitchen.” Before you head for the exit, consider that small CAN be beautiful. Limited dimensions set challenges in creating a functional and stylish space it’s true, but the two goals are achievable in tandem. These 50 small kitchen designs bring tips on how to make a shining gem out of restricted cooking space by thinking outside the tiny box.


Designer: Diễm Kiều  

Jazz up old kitchen tiles with patterned stickers. Our first small kitchen design is covered in intricate monochrome wall and floor tiles that draw you into the compact space. You don’t have to start from scratch to achieve this look though, tile transfers are a quick and cost effective way to transform an existing tiled backsplash.


Visualizer: Int2 Architecture  

Free up drawer space and decorate the walls with useful kitchen tools. This magnetic wall mounted knife holder keeps kitchen knives out of limited small kitchen organization trays, and instead moves them up on display. In this small kitchen remodel, the display complements the sharp design of a geometric backsplash.


Visualizer: aTng 糖 & Dunqiang Chen  

Create a recessed kitchen nook. This one-wall kitchen layout is set within a dividing wall of a studio apartment. The recessed design hides the kitchen cabinetry away from the rest of the open plan space, resulting in almost a separate room.


Visualizer: aTng 糖 & Dunqiang Chen  

Source small kitchen appliances to maximise bench space. A two ring induction hob leaves extra space for dishes and prep in this small modern kitchen. The tiny extractor canopy leaves wall space looking more spacious too.


Visualizer: ArchiCGI  

Add luxurious finishes. This marble kitchen backsplash creates a look of sophistication through the centre of contemporary white cupboards. Larger wooden storage cupboards flank the end of the kitchen run and span the upper space, creating a warm frame around the cool scheme.


Designer: Studio Bazi  

Inject a little colour. Beautiful traditional tiles bring a stripe of joy into this L shape white kitchen design, complemented by a classic teapot.

Install an eye-catching centrepiece to distract from limited room dimensions. A large kitchen clock is an ideal piece to draw the eye, and it also serves a practical function. The chunky retro analogue clock with calendar feature gracing these shelves is available here. This country style small u shaped kitchen also utilises decanters, storage jars and colourful dry foods to expand the display.


Visualizer: Fastighetsbyran  

Double bank wall cabinets to make the most of vertical real estate. Adding in an extra row of wall cupboards can drastically increase your small kitchen storage space.

Give kitchen items a dual use. This hard working little space offers up a number of small kitchen storage ideas. Mini wine racks hold up ceiling skimming shelves, a glass mixing bowl doubles as a fresh egg holder, and a water jug sidelines as cooking utensil storage.


Visualizer: 3XA  

The simplistic wooden bar within this black and white kitchen can be used like a small kitchen island for cooking prep, or as a small kitchen table for dining. Two low hanging kitchen pendant lights give its placement more prominence and permanence.


Designer: Vertebrae  

In this colour injected grey kitchen, a bright yellow small kitchen island with seating sits below statement shelving that holds wine glasses within easy reach.


Designer: Antonio Perrone  

Get creative with lighting. LED strip lights create a glow around these wall cabinets, causing a floating effect. The colour of your units can brighten too; yellow accent kitchens make an uplifting choice for a shady little spot.


Visualizer: Michał Bartecki  

If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen! This fiery orange backsplash takes a grey small apartment kitchen up another level.


Designer: Vera Tarlovskaya Interiors  

Choose slimline seating styles. Sourcing small kitchen table sets can be a tricky task. There must be enough room for the whole family to gather round but high-backed chairs can eat up a lot of space. Consider stools instead; they can be pushed away completely beneath your table to maximise walkable floor area. Look at tables that open on all sides too so that they can be pushed flush against a wall whilst offering leg space under all three remaining sides.


Visualizer: Hung Le  

Go handle-free. A handless kitchen has a far less fussy finish. There are also no pesky sticking out pieces to accidentally hook clothes on whilst passing by in close quarters. Particularly useful in corridor-like layouts like this green kitchen that leads straight up to a doorway.


Visualizer: Andriy Maheha  

Use the art of camouflage. This minimalist kitchen uses white cabinets against a white backdrop to blend in. A soffit takes the line of the cabinet fronts right up to the ceiling for a smooth seamless finish.


Designer: Black & Milk  

Make awkward shaped spaces work for you. Install shelving below sloping eaves to squeeze out every last inch in small kitchen remodels.


Designer: Holzrausch  

Another one below the eaves. This glowing small kitchen sink area is surrounded by bespoke grey kitchen cabinets that follow a sloping ceiling without a single gap.


Designer: Anton Medvedev  

A small kitchen table and chairs can act as a partially dividing wall, like in this small galley kitchen.

Go large on just one wall. In this wood and white small u shaped kitchen, tall larder units have been restricted to just one wall. The taller cupboards are plain white so that they fall away from attention too.


Visualizer: Liuba Kushnir  

Use glass doors to create a sense of added space.


Visualizer: Andrey Karasev  

The best thing about a tiny cooking space is that a small kitchen remodel cost is a lot less than its bigger cousins! This means that you can opt for some high-end finishes, like the recessed ceiling lights around the perimeter of this tall but small kitchen layout. A couple of black kitchen bar stools anchor the lofty design.

Another great example of how small kitchen islands can double as dining space.

Plant a kitchen greenhouse window. If you love growing your own herbs but are pushed for sill space, then look up! Be inspired by this ikea small kitchen; install a few rods across the glass to hang extra indoor herb planters right where they flourish. This small kitchen design incorporates hanging hook systems all over the walls too. A magnetic knife holder with hooks is an even more space friendly option.

Paint kitchen chalkboards. A chalkboard doesn’t have to take up wall space, you can splosh blackboard paint right onto your cabinets. Use your new writing space to jot shopping lists and display the weeks menu. Cover a few small kitchen shelves too to match the look.


Source: Ikea  

A small kitchen stand offers a large amount of storage. A stand or a small kitchen cart has a tiny footprint that can fit into a disused corner. This one tiny addition could solve your overspill problem and leave benches clear. Unique hanging planters in this Scandinavian kitchen clear a little extra prep space too.


Source: Ikea  

Get busy! This stacked open kitchen shelving should look messy but instead it harmoniously matches with the busy wallpaper. The maple top kitchen work table stores a menagerie of items on display too.


Designer: Atelier Daaa  

Use a-maze-ing pattern. Ok, your tiles don’t have to have a maze pattern like these stunning monochrome examples, but strong geometric line works fabulously over small kitchen floor plans. Light wood cabinets and cutting boards make a soft accompaniment to black and white decor.

Small kitchen tables often work best as a bespoke built-in design.

Think you don’t have room for a dishwasher? There are numerous slimline small kitchen appliances on the market to fit challenging spaces.


Designer: Gleba+Störmer  

Follow colour theory. Red is believed to enhance the appetite, hence why red is a popular choice in food packaging design. A red kitchen could get you in the mood to create more delicious dishes. You don’t have to go all in on red though, a single red shelf could create pop without being overwhelming. The copper desk lamp in this all encompassing scheme is eaten up by red reflection.


Designer: Atelier Daaa  

Embrace the power of patterns. A simple white and wood small kitchen design achieves individuality with drill hole patterned boards. A black framed divide brings in a cubist pattern too.


Designer: Atelier Daaa  

Use every nook and cranny. This white and wood kitchen holds a sweet dining nook.


Designer: Atelier Daaa  

This large breakfast nook is surrounded by extra storage cabinets, opposite the main kitchen run where a modern fruit bowl decorates the bench.


Architect: KDVA Architects  

Divide and conquer. Coloured perspex panels act as a subtle visual room divide whilst allowing light to flow through. Unique storage for wine doubles as a modern art piece.

Section off an open plan small kitchen. This black, white and wood themed kitchen has a dining bench jutting out that separates it from the rest of the living room. A couple of designer swivel bar stools give the very basic extension an upmarket look.


Visualizer: Andrey Kabanov  

Do not underestimate the importance of beautiful flooring.


Designer: Davis Architects  

Indoor plants are a cheap and attractive way to dress your nest, and they clean the air too.


Designer: Reform  

Task lighting is key. Locate pendant lights exactly where needed by using ceiling hooks.


Designer: Holzgeschichten  

Storage display nooks nicely break up a solid wall of cabinets.


Visualizer: SREDA interior  

Mix and match. This small kitchen table matches the white and wood finish of the cabinets. However, multicolour is the order of the day in this green kitchen backsplash, yellow chairs and blue accent kitchen.


Designer: Unicum Buro  
Visualizer: Yurii Hrytsenko  

Look at a tiny open plan home as one whole. This kitchen decor blends with the dining area, lounge and bedroom.

Strictly allocated kitchen storage places are a must.


Visualizer: Stanislav Kaminskyi  

A small tv for kitchen diners is commonplace, but how about a generous projection screen?

Decorative tile stickers can pull a kitchen colour scheme together.


Designer: WISP Architects  

Capitalise on cupboard space. This grey and white kitchen may be small but it holds oodles of storage space.


Designer: Jenny André Designing  

A small blue kitchen creates happy blue sky vibes.

Unique kitchen pendant lights can be the crowning glory to small minimalist kitchens.


Visualizer: Lera Brumina  

A small round kitchen table is easy to get around without bumping a hip on a sharp corner. This black kitchen table has been teamed with bottle green chairs to change things up a bit. A modern chandelier cuts through the view of black kitchen cabinets behind.


1. Slow cooker
2. Magnetic knife holder with hooks
3. In-cabinet kitchen trash can
4. Magnetic spice tins

Is your attic currently only being used for storage? If so, you’re not alone. Too many of us are guilty of taking older or rarely used items and burying them up in the attic, never to be thought of again. Unfortunately, though, while this organizational method may be common, it’s causing us to miss out on a great opportunity to create something special.

In fact, your attic may have more potential than any unused space in your home. When remodeled correctly, it can be transformed into anything you can dream up, from a much-needed home office to a full-on studio space that’s perfect for hosting longer-term guests.

Looking for a little inspiration? Check out the innovative attic design ideas below.

Cool Futuristic Style Home Interiors

We’ve all seen the futuristic interior design ideas splashed across space and time travel movies, and gradually these aesthetics are becoming a reality. Heads are being turned by new ideas on furniture design, and minimalist hidden storage ideas are adding to the mix to forge the way forward. What exactly does home style of the future look like? See for yourself with these futuristic interiors that offer us two quite different takes on the theme. The first encompasses stark white decor in an angular living space. The second is a softer transition into the future, with some familiar furniture silhouettes and colour relief mixed in with geometric influence and fresh thinking.


Designer: Anfei Chen  

Our first home design project, entitled the ‘Crystal’ Apartment, is a dramatic change from the soft surroundings that we’ve become accustomed to. Triangular cuts and folded edges create a strong visual impact, almost as though the interior was formed by a master of origami. The paper art theme is continued over in the window dressing too, where window blinds have cutaways to create a unique undulating pattern from end to end. The unique coffee table appears like a giant broken shard of mirrored glass.

One end of the sofa is raised like a cantilevered deck, echoing the same design feature as the neighbouring coffee table.

Angled cutaways in the wall and ceiling create plains for extra light sources, which help bathe the arctic white room with brightness and reflection over its ice-smooth floor. Stainless mirrors and dimming glasses have been implemented to increase the look of space.

One of the cutaway angles acts as a bench seat opposite the sofa. Other occasional seating in the room comes in the form of two small white drum stools, which have a folded paper look around their base.

The sofa is shaped almost like a lightning strike, with one end impacting against a wall with an accessible shelf on which to place books and drinks.

A control panel is concealed in a wall that marks the transition into the kitchen.

The white bedroom incorporates all of the same design elements as the living area, including geometric cutaways and the undulating profile of privacy blinds…

… This is because the bed is located directly behind the sofa, making the entire apartment one single open plan living space. The open flow makes every millimeter count in the limited dimensions of this apartment, allowing the eye to absorb the whole space from corner to corner – even the bathroom can be seen through a glass panel.

The dining area is an irregular shaped breakfast bar, teamed with angular kitchen counter stools.

The breakfast bar light is a set of minimalist pendant lights.

Inside the bathroom, folded edges make the toilet look like a modern art sculpture. An irregular shaped basin sits on the modern bathroom vanity.

We can see from the home plan that the bathtub also has a bespoke outline.


Designer: Martins Architect  

A young couple resides in this Italian Quarter townhouse in Kiev. One of the homeowners is the head of an advanced IT company, which inspired the home designers to focus on technical progress and functionality. As well as having an ultra modern interior style, the apartment meets all of the requirements of a smart home. All the building elements are connected by one system so the owners can use just one smartphone app to maintain control of the security system, monitor the heating system with a heat pump, regulate central ventilation and air conditioning, and manage lighting and electrical appliances at any time, wherever they might be in the world.

The 250 square metre home is decorated with a base of gallery white and deepest black, with an overlay of bright furniture and colourful illumination. A diode light changes color to suit the mood of the owners and the time of day.

Feature walls have been lit from below to emphasise texture and colour. This enormous dining table light has a crunched effect to its shade for an angular look.

The staircase balustrade continues the free-formed angular look. This two-storey townhouse has one open plan social space on the ground floor, with a private zone upstairs. The home has twelve rooms and a terrace on each level. At the bottom of the staircase a pixelated work of art plays on the theme of computer technology, the inspiration for this home interior.

A large table has three dining chairs to one side, and three desk chairs surrounding another two sides. Flat fronted, handle-free cupboard doors subtly conceal their secret contents.

One ergonomic desk chair faces a stand holding dual computer screens. An undulating ceiling pendant lights the whole area.

In the master bedroom there is a soft feature wall that supports a modern wall sconce at each side of the bed; these are the Scantling Wall Light. The bed itself is a cosy loosely upholstered design in contrast to the rest of the smooth minimalist room decor. A bright yellow powder-coated metal shelving unit displays a few special items.

A bespoke window seat has been created as part of the window frame, extending out from the wall like a shelf.

The bathroom is a charcoal grey and white affair with warm wooden accent furniture.

The double sink bathroom vanity has one continuous surface that dips away for the basins.

A walk in shower spans the length of the bathroom.
