What makes your small kitchen so cool?

Color decisions, lighting solutions, effective use of space, built-in kitchen appliances coupled with minimalistic design make kitchen spacious and modern-looking.

One challenge you overcame in your small kitchen, or a good resource you've found.

Kitchen had an air-duct facility which was precluding due to its dimensions from proper installation of standard-sized kitchen furniture. Finally despite objections of workers air-duct was covered with plasterboard box and furniture was properly installed.

Favorite Meal to Cook in Kitchen

I really enjoy to use my stove, so my favorite dish is lasagne.

Excellent use of a small space! The colors used for surfaces and curtains, etc work really well together. I'd import this kitchen to the US in a heartbeat.

Very practical design. And love that, though small, it includes sit-down dining space.

nice. I would have used different hardware, like little tiny circle or square knobs, something unobtrusive.

I agree with kjansson about the hardware.

I do find this the most calming and serene kitchen space. It's sleek and clean and modern--I love it!

Not a fan of the finish on the doors. I also think the hardware is dated.

The hardware isn't dated, it's classic. The kitchen is very attractive and the space is well used. And an eat-in kitchen this small is great.

Daria, knowing that you had to bring all accessorizes from London in your suitcase, I would give the first prize to you only for this. Wish you good luck and victory!
