What makes your small kitchen so cool?
What I love most about the kitchen is the green tile back splash. I wanted to keep the colors neutral--with wood cabinets, stainless steel appliances and slate gray counters and floor tile--so the green of the tile really stands out.
One challenge you overcame in your small kitchen, or a good resource you've found.
In New York City, especially in older apartment buildings, storage is always in short supply. While I had to keep the same basic footprint of the appliances, I was tempted to cover the opposite wall with 12-inch cabinets from floor to ceiling. In the end, I preserved an area next to the window for a small cafe table and two chairs.
Favorite Meal to Cook in Kitchen
Two weeks ago, I bought a Lodge grill pan and my boyfriend and I grilled veggies and hamburgers on the 4th of July. Because the window is right next to the stove, I propped a box fan in the window and all the smoke from the grilling was sent right out the window. Indoor grilling in New York City!
