This tiny space proves that even if your kitchen is no bigger than the average closet it can still pack in some big style as long as you restrain yourself. A strict monochrome approach to dinnerware keeps it visually uncluttered. This little space takes some big risks that have huge style payoffs. From the bold yellow cabinetry to the blue accent wall, it’s easy to overlook the pint-sized floor plan of this boldly-colored space. The writing is definitely on the wall in this kitchen, where a chalkboard-painted accent wall acts as a space to write daily mantras or to-do lists.
If you’re hesitant to go full-on bold with a bright or deep color (but really want something different), perhaps you might consider just a hint of a color like the barely blush wall color in this kitchen. Sometimes, all you need to create a small dining area for one or two is a tiny table tucked in any open space you might have between cabinets and your appliances, like in this hyper efficient (and totally lust-worthy) kitchen.
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.
If you'd like to blend more than two metals, do so sparingly ─ with purpose. Stick to finishes all within a similar color family─like this trio of chrome, iron, ─ pewter── consider picking a dominant metal, with the others as accents. This kitchen casts pewter drawer tugs in the lead role, period a polished chrome sink ─ wrought‐iron‐sconces support.
