Small kitchens can be frustratingly crowded, especially narrow ones, but there are always a few design solutions that can turn small space into stylish space. The key to a successful slim kitchen design is functionality. Storage and work surfaces are such necessities that can be installed on both or just one wall. When it comes to design, choosing bright colors is better if you want the kitchen to look and feel bigger. If you want, you can install colored cabinets that will stand out from the floor, the opposite wall, or the rest of the furniture. You can also use larger windows if the architecture allows, or even install a skylight. You can tuck a seating area closer to the window and still have a freestanding closet to store all of your dishes or act as a pantry. Check out the ideas below for some inspiration!
