What Houzz contributors are saying:
5. Gather and display. This cute kitchen demonstrates how you can be organized and chic at the same time. A charming crock to hold wooden spoons, a wall-mounted crate or two to provide a home for vintage-style scales and jugs, a small wall-mounted spice rack — they all add a pretty touch as well as having a practical function.
40. Go round the bend. The biggest investment in this small kitchen was almost certainly the custom curved countertop, but the space created by this one design decision was surely worth it.See the rest of this dinky octagonal home
Houzz at a GlanceWho lives here: A young coupleLocation: Near Aberaeron, Ceredigion, WalesSize: 463 square feet (43 square meters)Designer: Hannah Cockburn of Cream & Black Interior DesignThe views of the countryside from the tiny house are stunning, so Cockburn designed the interior to complement the natural beauty. “We wanted to create a calm, relaxed space that doesn’t take anything away from the amazing landscape outside,” she says. “The idea was to keep the look simple and not too contemporary, with lots of calm, warm colors.”Local craftsman Steve Gates used Scots pine trees to build the impressive timber structure that holds up the roof and walls of the house. These add definition to the interior. The kitchen cabinets were made to fit the space. “We then used oak floorboards that are maybe 400 years old to make the end panels,” Cockburn says.
