A modern kitchen, whether it’s part of an open plan or if it’s a separate area, would usually have a simple and clean décor. The furniture would have simple lines without unnecessary ornaments or decorative details. Also, special attention is usually given to the way the space is used and organized. It’s why modern kitchens have lots of storage space, most often hidden in unexpected places.
This little kitchen does an impeccable job of mixing traditional elements like the black accent wall, rustic stools, and modern marble island. In this super small kitchen, a retro menu board adds a fun “greasy spoon” diner vibe to the wall. It adds just the right amount of kitsch without going overboard.
If you’ve run out of wall and counter space, look up. Your ceiling is often untapped (and full of potential). Try a heavy-duty ceiling pot rack or try a DIY project like the owners of this small kitchen who created a hanging bar. Apartment Therapy writer Nancy Mitchell lives in a small studio in Manhattan with very limited counter space. She remedied that by bringing in a compact rolling cart which acts as an island.
