There are some very good ideas shown -- and some interesting colors used as well -- but my deep double stainless steel sink suits my food prep and dish rinsing/washing habits much better.

I also disagree with the idea that a fixed/built-in island is suitable for any truly small kitchen -- but then the concept of the "kitchen triangle" -- uninterrupted space between stove and refrigerator and sink -- has proven very convenient for me. If a rolling cart or table that can fit in a kitchen as needed is considered an island, that is a different issue entirely.

Also, being retired and living over a dozen miles from the nearest fresh food store, daily shopping isn't desirable so I need more than a dorm fridge for my fresh and frozen food.

Different kitchen designs work for different people ... but then, if we all liked the same things, this would be a boring world and this Houzz forum would not be nearly as interesting.

Leighgrant-- kitchen #6 has an open floor plan but the actual kitchen looks like it is all on 1 wall. The rest of the room is probably the dining and family areas.

Small Detail #11

The ideal addition for a small kitchen--a waterfall Cambria countertop edge. Extends the countertop for an Designer's touch. The elevated dining-tier adds more dimension. The 1/2 leg is the perfect finishing detail.
