It’s almost heeeere! Our annual Small, Cool Kitchens contest launches later today (look for it soon on the site), so in celebration we went through past years’ contests and pulled a few favorites. Do you remember Kathleen’s totally serene rental kitchen? Or Megumi’s metal file cabinets that she repurposed as kitchen cabinets? Check ’em all out above, and be inspired. There’s no kitchen too small for style, functionality, and some serious cooking.

What are you looking forward to about this year’s Small, Cool Kitchens Contest? What are your particular small kitchen challenges?
