Do you struggle with storage and space issues in your kitchen? I think most people do, regardless of the size of their kitchen. Today I’m featuring an adorable, small space kitchen that’s large on style and storage. When I discovered it, I was amazed at the smart use of space!
This charming cottage kitchen was designed and befitted by Middleton Bespoke, known for their quality craftsmanship. Old World charm flows throughout the functional and attractive space.
Think an island won’t fit in your small kitchen? Think again! This narrow island makes great use of both form and functionality. Frequently used bowls take residence on the open shelves while drawers create handy storage for utensils and dish towels.
One corner of the kitchen showcases a handsome custom cabinet.
All your dishes can fit right here. A major factor when creating ease of use in a small kitchen is organization. Like items are grouped together on shelves for easy finding.
A convenient plate and mug rack provides quick access to everyday dishes. Beautiful red valances and a fresh bouquet add style to the small space kitchen. And note the bead board look on the side of the cabinets – we created this same look in our kitchen by adding bead board to the ends of stock cabinets.
A vintage stove graces one side of the kitchen while a farmhouse rooster struts his stuff on the tile work. I’m thinking of adding a pulley pendant light like this one to my own small space kitchen.
Another custom cabinet adjacent to the stove acts as a pantry for food preparation. You can see a glimpse of the dishwasher next to the pantry.
Ample storage is provided both on the shelves and with the built-in spice rack. Perfect!
Wood beams add to the cottage appeal of today’s small space kitchen. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a small kitchen with such great use of space. You can view more of Middleton Bespoke’s custom kitchen projects on their website at www.middleton-bespoke.co.uk.
What are some challenges you face in your own kitchen? Not enough Storage? Lack of an easy work flow? For me, it’s a little of both!
