small kitchen design

Making the most of a small space for a kitchen is often a daunting task. The kitchen is the hardest working room in a house and it has to be right for the cook that lives there. But that's the key - the "cook that lives there". Every cook has different needs and that is what is crucial in making a small space work. Some people like a long span of counter for food plating and other kitchen tasks, while others want zones for chopping or rolling out dough. And some people need a lot of pantry space, while others might prefer a larger fridge for fresh produce. In a small space you often have to choose.

Making the most of your kitchen space is not about what other people do, but rather what your specific needs are as your home's chef. Below is an array of kitchen ideas that you might want to take note of for your next small kitchen reno - or large kitchen reno for that matter.


a few of my clients' kitchens

Here are some kitchens I have helped my clients with over the years. They are classic and should stand the test of time. That is always how I like to direct my clients' visions. Some are rented; some are simply updates; some are complete gut jobs; and many are budget friendly. And there are a few before and afters, which are always fun to see!

making the most of a tiny kitchen

When space is limited, what you keep in your kitchen has to be what you use. But that doesn't mean it has to be boring! You can still make it glam, practical or outrageously cute, as long as you make it yours. Here are some great examples of creative minds put to task in some small kitchens.
