While the work triangle may be the most efficient way to organize a kitchen, your space might not permit it. If you are working with a small space, aligning all your cooking space and appliances on one wall can make your kitchen feel more efficient.

Here are 10 examples of single-wall kitchens that will have you considering this streamlined option.

  • Gray & Warm Wood – Jason Ball Interiors: One-wall kitchens lend themselves perfectly to a minimalist approach.
  • White & Pink Scandinavian Kitchen – Lisbet Spörndly Photography: Our favorite thing about this long Swedish kitchen is the bright pops of color to offset the stark white.
  • Stainless Steel & Exposed Brick – Jason Arnold Interiors: A mix of natural textures from the exposed brick and wooden dining chairs helps warm up this sleek kitchen.
  • Serene Modern Kitchen – Sandrin Leung Architecture: The high windows and warm wood are a nice contrast to the glossy white cabinets. And the bar-height table can serve as extra counter space.
  • Sleek Studio Kitchen – Design Matters: This studio kitchen makes great use of the limited space available.
