WHY MY SMALL KITCHEN IS COOL: Space, function, color! The opened-up kitchen feels spacious and part of the house now, making it easy to chat with friends while fixing a meal or just having a drink. I often sit and work at the counter because it’s such a comfortable space. At night I especially love to cook by the glow of the undercabinet LEDs bouncing off the cobalt glass tiles. The compact appliances suit the small space and leave a bit of floor space for Oopie. The curved peninsula sits atop a cabinet with drawers facing the dining room, making use of otherwise unreachable space next to the stove. In winter I love cozying up to the radiator.
