If there’s one thing the readers over at our sister site, Apartment Therapy, love, it’s a tiny home. And if there’s one thing Kitchn readers love, it’s a tiny kitchen. So we gleaned that it was absolutely necessary to put together a list of the most popular tiny kitchens (from tiny homes) on Apartment Therapy. So many tiny things!

Here are 10 swoon-worthy spaces that will have you seriously considering a major kitchen downsize.

1. A Tiny 1920s Cottage Kitchen

This sweet kitchen is nestled in a 450-square-foot cottage in Seattle, WA. Raya, who rents the space, calls the space “meaningful, warm, and simple.” It’s her goal to surround herself with “beautiful, classic, utilitarian things — not too many‚” and to “never become too attached to them.”

2. A Beautiful, Livable Tiny Kitchen

If you struggle with storage in your own kitchen, just study this bright and airy 160-square-foot tiny house in Philadelphia, PA. It’s full of plenty of great ideas. Our favorite part? The vintage cheese boxes repurposed into tiny makeshift drawers.

3. A Charming Kitchen in a 238-Square Foot Tiny Home

We’re obsessed with this beautiful and functional kitchen in the Coastal Craftsman, designed by Handcrafted Movement. While short on space, it’s not short on design. The reclaimed walnut countertop and sea foam-colored cabinets are just a few of our favorite charming touches.

4. A Dreamy 1972 Airstream Kitchen

This remodeled kitchen, which butts up right against the bed in this 1972 Airstream, leaves little to be desired. It’s equipped with an oak butcher block countertop and double-bowl sink from IKEA, a three-burner oven, just the right amount of cabinet space, and a handmade walnut dinette table.

5. A Minimal, Modern Kitchen in a Greyhound Bus

We’re starting to wonder why we don’t live in a tiny home on wheels right about now — especially after seeing this kitchen on a converted Greyhound Bus, which looks downright spacious. We had to see it to believe it too.

6. A Mini Modern Cottage Kitchen

It comes as no surprise that the kitchen in this former art studio in Mill Valley, CA, is essentially a work of modern art.

7. An Incredible, One-of-a-Kind, Tiny House Kitchen

The kitchen in this expandable tiny house — designed by a couple who run a film, theater, photography, and set design company — looks like something straight off of a movie set.

9. A Kitchen in a 188-Square-Feet Tiny Home

This itty-bitty camper kitchen in a converted 16-year-old Keystone Cougar fifth wheel is giving us life. The home on wheels is owned by a creative couple who DIY-ed the whole thing for themselves and their four pets.

10. This Stylish School Bus Kitchen

The family of six (yes, six) who live in this 250-square-foot school bus downsized from a 5,000-square-foot house. Our second favorite part, after the kitchen of course, is the bunk bed nook.
