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.
You know the drill: whiter=brighter. Keep everything white, then add in pops of color from your serving ware, or even a SMEG fridge. Think rustic and modern can not be mixed? This raw wood island is proof they totally can.
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.
