We took a boring, outdated, poorly-functioning condo kitchen and made it a cook's delight. We designed the entire kitchen ourselves using Google SketchUp and did much of the physical work ourselves, so it was truly a labor of love.
With golden wood floors, and lots of natural light, the space feels bigger than it is. We preserved the airiness by really working the vertical space for storage, leaving enough floor space for two to perform the necessary moves of a well-choreographed meal.
We're deep into our Small Cool Kitchens Contest! Let's look back at the second week of entries, with some truly beautiful and smart favorites among them. Check out the past week's entries below, and vote for your favorites!
My tiny kitchen feels historical: the townhome was built in the 1920's and is located in a historic German neighborhood. Making meals with quality ingredients hasn't changed much since then, no matter how big or small the kitchen is!
The deep windowsill creates extra storage space and a place to hang our pot rack. The glass door cabinets are accessible from both the kitchen and living room and allow light to pass through, making the space feel open, airy and bigger than it is.
What makes this small kitchen cool is that it feels so big! When we remodeled, we used bright, mid-century colors, plain white cabinets and simple finishes that really compliment the rest of the house.
