Inspiration (Continued): Having a well-organized kitchen eliminates the chaos that would otherwise easily arise easily in such a small space, and adding the surgical side table as a second prep area allows us to divide and conquer. Adding color fruity citruses - was essential to stimulate our imaginations.

Tip: When acquiring kitchen tools, opt for quality over quantity. One quality piece will do more for you than a selection of mediocre ones.
