WHY MY SMALL KITCHEN IS COOL: The play of light off the reflective surfaces. My kitchen is small but thoughtfully designed to be efficient like a ship. It's separated from the main living area by a custom cabinet that holds the fridge and oven on the kitchen side, but is a bookcase to the living room.
