If you live in a small apartment, then you will need to start thinking small instead of big. Or at least that is what everyone around you will tell you. However, that need not be the case. No one said that you cannot think big in a small space. In fact, making the most out of the limited options (or space) you have makes for the ideal way of planning and thinking. So if you are looking for kitchen designs for small kitchens then you have come to the right place.
Mirrors are known to be the best way to make a cramped space look bigger. But, seeing how you cannot exactly add a mirror to your kitchen space, simply go for minimalistic cabinets with a cooktop. This will give off a mirror like effect and you can definitely make the most out of this incredibly two-way illusion.
Minimalizing counter space will automatically free up room in the kitchen. Although it sounds daunting, once you actually experience minimal counter space you will get so used to it that you will fail to see the need for more than 10 inches of counter top space. Painting them white completes the effect gloriously.
Portable seating arrangements are also great in respect to kitchen designs for small kitchens. When it is time to wine and dine, roll them in. Later on, you can remove them and make more space to move around while cooking or cleaning up after. These nifty little hacks will give you instant room in a small kitchen.
