What makes your small kitchen so cool?
Even though our kitchen is really tiny, the two of us have become really smooth at maneuvering around each other while we make dinner. I love that making meals for each other and friends is such an intimate and cozy activity in our small kitchen. Plus a small space means less to clean!
One challenge you overcame in your small kitchen, or a good resource you've found.
We donât have a single drawer! We cut a piece of pegboard from the hardware store to fit our wall, painted it bright green and now we use it to hang up our pots, pans and kitchen tools so they are always within reach. My boyfriend also installed a three-tiered hanging basket on a pulley system for extra storage that we can raise up out of the way in between uses. These little improvements free up precious counter and cabinet space and maximizes the vertical space provided to us by our tall ceilings. Bright white walls and colorful accents help distract from the fact that there aren't any windows.
Favorite Meal to Cook in Kitchen
A quiche! It doesn't take up too much counter space or dirty too many dishes- just cut up a few veggies, whisk the eggs with cream and pour it into a pie crust. Sprinkle with cheese, bake it in the oven and that's it.
