When it comes to living small, there are a bunch of rules one needs to follow. Tips like clearing the clutter and making use of light colours are nothing new, and when doing what you’re supposed to do to add visual space and style, the end result can be quite trendy. 

This is certainly no different when it comes to the small kitchen. Being a work space, a certain amount of legroom and mobility is required. But seeing as the kitchen is also known as a social area, one cannot overlook the comfort- and beauty factors.

But not to stress, for we have gathered 19 kitchens for your viewing pleasure – these beauties may be small, but they certainly know what they’re doing when it comes to colours, materials, modern design, and layout.

Enjoy being inspired!

1. The right patterns can be a lifesaver; just be sure not to overdo it in a tiny space.

2. Light neutrals and natural light save this small kitchen/dining area from being gloomy.

3. A sleek white, open breakfast counter that balances superbly with the warmer tones of the wood. Visual space is important in tiny areas.

4. See how amazing mosaics can look in a small space – not too many areas though, or else it will look tiny and cramped.

5. The galley layout is a great design for small kitchens, leaving you with ample storage space and adequate room for walking.

6. Feel free to bring in some jovial tones into that small kitchen – this sunshine yellow works a treat.

7. Glass – and lots of it – can open a space onto exteriors, letting both natural light and views into that small kitchen.

8. Scared your small kitchen might look bland? Opt for a striking backsplash and interesting lighting (they don’t take much space at all).

9. You can never go wrong with monochrome – just ensure the dark tones don’t overtake the white ones.

10. A round table takes less space and looks softer on the eye – perfect for tiny areas.

11. Upper cabinets can help you out with storage – a crucial element in small spaces.

17. We love the combination of warm, earthy neutrals and fresh sunshine livening up this space.

18. Caramel-toned timber takes stylish control of the cabinetry and peninsula, resulting in a tranquil and spa-like look.
