Just because you don't have much space doesn't mean you can't have a functional kitchen. This tiny apartment kitchen uses the counter as the kitchen table and maximizes storage with a wall-mounted pot rack.
This kitchen spices up an otherwise plain palette with a blue glass backsplash in over-sized tile. When combined with the extra cabinet space provided by ceiling-height cabinets, the result is head-turning functionality and style.
Black cabinets, stainless steel appliances and sleek hardware are all modern kitchen trends, but the open shelving systems, wood storage and butcher block counters soften up the vibe and bring it down to earth.
