Less than 9 feet wide, this kitchenette packs lots of options for cooking and food storage into a very practical footprint. It includes a counter-depth 24-inch refrigerator, a sink, an oven with induction cooktop, a microwave and a mini dishwasher.

This pied-à-terre kitchenette was designed for part-time living with light cooking capability. The design features a Vario gas two-burner cooktop, a sink and an undercounter fridge.Drawers instead of cupboards.
THIS is what we are hoping to accomplish on the 4th floor.
Designer Steve Justrich's renovated 1912 kitchen was carefully designed to make the most of its 90 square feet. Justrich relied on simple tricks — placing the refrigerator flush to the wall in an old doorway and purchasing small European appliances — to save on space. Open shelving instead of upper cabinetry and a turquoise Venetian plaster ceiling create the illusion of more space.
A tiny dishwasher is all Justrich needs for a day's worth of dishes. A built-in cutting board and a strainer for the sink expand counter and prep space.
How cool! This is in Barcelona.

The owner of this 400-square-foot New York City apartment loves to cook and knew that his lack of square footage didn't have to be an inhibitor. Together, the client and designers Michael Chen and Kari Anderson came up with a unique "unfolding" concept — a built-in cabinet that holds a closet, a desk and a bed, and divides the apartment into zones.
This movable 7- by 16-foot home is combined with an equally tiny home next door for a total of 620 square feet of living space. Jay Shafer, founder of Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, calls this home (along with his wife and young son). This energy efficient and ecofriendly housing solution relies on the basics, including a bare-bones kitchen. The front door of the house opens into its small kitchen and dining space. A sink, a prep surface, a portable electric range and a small fridge serve the family's basic needs. A shelf above the sink holds most of the dishes and other kitchen essentials.

Mother-daughter design team Mariette Gomez and Brooke Gomez went back to the basics with their elegant interpretation of a traditional English drawing room. Challenged with high ceilings, they used elegant dentil crown molding, an original Carrara mantel and a wrought iron and brass railing to create an inviting space. The main inspiration comes from a London flat, with a delicious vanilla palette and accents meant to look like they've been collected over time.
The windowed bay became a natural sitting nook for the wine lounge, with its huge windows overlooking the garden and atrium. On one wall is a custom-painted celestial chart inspired by the room's awkward proportions and Joseph Cornell's boxes. A regency wine cooler and other older accessories from Kentshire fill out the space.
Let in natural light. While you should avoid blocking natural light in a small room, sometimes the only place that makes sense for a bed is right in front of the window. If that's the case, try a see-through headboard (like the one on this metal frame) to make the most of your sunlight.
Install pendants. Don't take up precious bedside table space with bulky lamps and oversize shades; install pendant lighting instead. Hanging pendant lights from the ceiling creates a focal point while providing task lighting on each side of the bed. Just remember to measure carefully and hang them low enough so you don't have to get out of bed to turn them off.
