39 Examples of Small Kitchen Designs

From Fully Functional Mini Kitchens to Motorized Islands

— February 25, 2015 — Art & Design
As the home becomes smaller, it is only natural that people will have to deal with small kitchens creatively. After all, this is a space that often acts as a communal area for residents and guests alike. Yet there have been a slew of clever designs spanning from storage to interior design that makes the most of these small kitchens.

Whether that means rethinking the placement of traditional appliances such as fridges and dishwashers or creating furniture that brings a sense of airiness to such small kitchens, there are a variety of solutions that people will be excited to adopt. There is even a motorized kitchen island that retracts into the floor when more space is needed versus surface to cook or eat at.
