The kitchen (in most cases) is by far the most used room in your house, even if it’s a studio apartment in NYC and sits on one wall of your entire living space. You cook (or at least grab a plate to put your take-out on), you eat (if there’s room), you feed your kids, your cats, your dogs and you usually end up congregating in the kitchen when you have people over. So if you’re spending so much time in your kitchen why not spend time making it a really comfortable and cool space that both you and your visitors can enjoy.
Create a comfy place to sit if you have the room
Don’t be afraid to add a splash of color!
Make the breakfast nook as cozy as possible
As far as city living goes, you’re usually stuck working with a limited space. No excuse to ignore your kitchen. In fact, you should give it more love and attention. Check out these great small kitchens and let them inspire you to create a cooking nest of your own.
A new hanging fixture, trendy colorful runner, simple subway tiles, new appliances and simple white cabinetry with updated hardware has made this small space desireable to hang out in. Are you asking for too many cooks in the kitchen? Maybe, but if that’s the case, you’ve done something right!
Use your pots and pans as decoration and design
The floor is the best place to add a little punch. If checkerboard isn’t your thing, pick a pattern that is and get out your paint brush.
Again, the floor has been given some life and the roman shade adds an element of modern chic
One of my favorite small kitchens by Ruthie Sommers. Don’t be afraid to paint the walls in a small space a dark color. Just remember to keep the cabinetry and trim bright and popping – like this eye catching turquoise door!
