Top 10 Tiny Kitchen Design Ideas

Tiny Kitchen Design Ideas

Make the Most of Your Mini Kitchen

Whether you own your home or rent an apartment, Chicago kitchens can be a tight squeeze. No worries though, we have a jam-packed list full of tiny kitchen design ideas for our tiny kitchens. Check out our top 10 (courtesy of ElleDecor)

Tiny Kitchen Design

1.Tables for Two

Tiny kitchens call for tiny breakfast tables. Try a wrought iron garden table for two with lots of negative space.

2.Don’t Waste Any Space

Build to the space you’ve got. If you have deep inset appliances, build deeper shelving.

3.White = Right

Nothing new here: white cabinets and shelving instantly trick your eye into thinking there’s more room.

4.Keep Cook Books off the Counter

Cluttered countertops make an already small space feel more crowded. Stash those puppies above appliances or on top of shelving.

5.Counter-top Dining

For ultra tiny spaces, grab some chic barstools and forget the dining table all together.

6.Open Shelving

Less is more in our tiny Chicago kitchens. When possible, ditch cabinetry with doors. Keep plates and bowls out on open, raised shelving. (Plus, this gives you incentive to buy stylish platters).

7.Hang Pots and Pans

With limited counter space and storage, sometimes you have to look up. Hanging your pots and pans gives more space and a shabby-chic look.

8.Let there be Light

Adding a sky-light or sheer curtains can instantly add visual space to a tiny kitchen.

9.Artsy Corner

Sometimes our Chicago apartments or homes have quirky layouts left over from old construction. Play up the quirk and utilize the space as a colorful breakfast nook with unique art.

10.Go Skinny

Galley kitchens are common in tiny Chicago apartments. Go for long, narrow islands to make the spaces feel sleek and spacious.
