In a kitchen, you don’t need a ton of space to make it work for you. In fact, I like to design smaller kitchens to really test my ability to create a fabulous, functional space.
Because the kitchen is usually the centerpiece of the home, it always becomes a gathering space, doesn’t it? And there are plenty of ways that you can entertain your friends and family in the kitchen without feeling like you’ve run out of room.

Don’t you just love that space? I do! Let’s recap those tips for the kitchen.
1. A custom-built island can be the perfect multi-functional item for prepping, serving, and gathering, even homework!
2. Try panel-front appliances instead of stainless steel or other materials. It looks just like your cabinetry and makes your kitchen look larger.
3. Punch up your neutral kitchen with color, whether from a great range with red knobs or a fabulous green island with a cafe counter top!
