Few small kitchen design pictures have captured me quite as much as this gorgeous white and marble themed room. I know that most people would see it as your standard white and marble space, but I can view so much more depth to this small kitchen design. First of all, I like how the designer stuck to a few simple textures and patterns in order to keep things understated, yet brought these items to every possible place in the room in order to create an ultra cohesive look. Not only that, but using marble as a main texture really lends a luxurious feel to the space without being super over the top. The other thing that drew me to the space was the glass doors cabinets.
I got so used to looking at small kitchen design pictures for our last home that it is somewhat shocking to now see the stunning large homes in the "regular size" galleries. Not that I don't love some great small kitchen design ideas -- they have gotten me through some itty bitty townhouses in style. I just am so excited to be able to think past the square footage and purely at what styles, furnishings, and color palettes I like best. A small kitchen tends to stifle your decor a bit because it requires you to eliminate a lot of items that you would never dream of in a larger space.
Even though these technically don't count as small kitchen design pictures, I though that I would post them here because I think that this layout would have been fantastic for anybody working with a limited corner design. I remember when we first got our old condo (that is now a rental), I spent ages looking through small kitchen design pictures modern in order to find the best clean and contemporary layout and overall look to maximize that space. Our current home is not necessarily modern, but I think that it would still be attractive to people looking for that style kitchen pictures. I really like the way our designer combined the dark cabinets with the granite countertops and flooring because they each bring out the best in each other.
Most small kitchen design pictures don't feature home with lofty 12 foot ceilings and luxury materials, but I think that these photos showcase what you can do when you have a little bit more. First of all, I love a small kitchen design with island -- it can be hard to do because of space issues, but when you can make it fit, and island does so much for the overall style of a kitchen. The other thing that really stands out to me about this design is the unique way that they used artwork throughout. Most homes that I pictures of small kitchens that I have seen look a little bit bare because they have taken the minimalist approach in order to avoid the dreaded word "clutter." I like this more design-driven alternative.
Most of the small kitchen design pictures on here feature all white (or mostly white) rooms that are kept very minimalistic and bright in order to give the illusion of more space. Not that I don't like those kitchen design pictures, but they just are not really my style -- I much prefer darker and mountain-inspired looks like this. I have to admit that I was nervous that I would not be able to translate that into a smaller home because everybody says that darker color palettes will make everything feel even tinier. The home in these photos is about the same size as mine, but the kitchen still looks amazing and spacious to me.
Even though the size of this house feels absolutely huge (probably because of the height of the ceiling), I think that their small galley style room would still technically fall into this gallery of small kitchen design pictures. This space goes to show you that, even if you have relatively minimal square footage, you can definitely still take on an awesome small kitchen remodel to create a space that feels large with the help of architectural detailing. Now I realize that this technique is probably not available to everybody but, think about it, if you have a ranch-style home talk to your architect or contractor to see if it is possible to knock out the low-hanging ceiling and raise to a vault by taking out some attic space.
