Small kitchens are no joke. Less space for cooking, fewer areas for storage, and then we don’t even mention the problem of not being able to socialise with friends and family. Yes, a small kitchen is an issue – but it’s not the end of the world. And with some inspiration (brought to you by homify, as always), your small kitchen can become the most stylish and welcoming space in your entire house.

Therefore, today we’d like to focus on cupboards and cabinetry intended specifically for small kitchens. Yes, they will be smaller than the ones made for larger kitchens, but they don’t hold back in terms of visual appeal and functionality.

But like always, planning is key. So, before you set out to look at new cabinetry for your small kitchen, first think about how you intend to use it. Is it for extra storage for a myriad of kitchen accessories? Is it only for cooking? Or do you occasionally use it for other actions like working and socialising? 

And while you ponder, we have these beautiful cupboards and cabinetry, perfect for smaller kitchens, to help inspire you…   

1. There's a strong amount of charm in this small kitchen thanks to the creative design of the cupboards and ceiling pendants—most notably those handles. And don't overlook the elegant wooden breakfast bar!

2. Sleek white surfaces are ideal to make a tiny space seem bigger and more inviting. But what we really love here is that exposed brick wall lending so much raw character to the cooking area. How about a floating shelf or two added onto it?

3. The colour palette moves towards a stone grey for this modern kitchen, and the shine of the stainless steel appliances perfectly reflect incoming light. Don't overlook the various storage compartments!

4. Daisy white hues, shaker-style design, and deluxe shiny pullers enhance these cabinets' visual aesthetics. And a bonus: that wall opening makes this small kitchen seem so much bigger!

5. We really love how these cabinetry show off a patterned, textured look towards the living area, yet keep it subtle with pure white for the U-shaped culinary corner.
