Yowzers! The Small Cool home entries flooded in after the deadline last week and we have been busy sorting through them all for the very best kitchens. It was hard to narrow it down to four this week - let us know if you had another favorite we didn't pick here.
It has been interesting to see the kitchens that have been shown in the featured apartments, and even more interesting to see how many people leave out their kitchens. They are functional, not decorative, by their very nature, and it's interesting to see who focused on their kitchen and who didn't. Click through to see full photos of all four kitchens and links to the original entries, and vote here for your favorite kitchen.
If you especially like one of these kitchens and want to see more of it, then make sure to go vote for that entry on its contest page. The semi-finalists from each region will submit more photos for their final entry and a chance to win a big prize from Room & Board.
• East #24: Melissa's Pod - We were impressed by the sleek way this white kitchen fit into the design of the apartment.
• Midwest #8 - Abbe's Lil' Abode - Bold color! So cheery.
• Midwest #14: Annie's Logan Square Home - We couldn't see as much of this kitchen as we would have liked, but it is certainly small, and the red feels inspiring to us.
• Northwest #11: John's Mission Melange - We want to see more of this one! Look at all that wood, and the table is right there and already set. Lovely.
