Tiny kitchen.



The image as presented here isn't great (sorry). But click on this and read the accompanying text. Very clever how much function she got out of this closet-sized NY kitchen.

It's even smaller than mine! Not by much, but a little. I love small kitchens, as long as they are uber efficient. The kitchen I have now is the smallest I've ever had, but is my favorite, as it just works better for me than all the previous ones. I don't care for eat-in kitchens, unless it's just a little breakfast nook, as I prefer to dine without gazing upon the "mechanics" of a prepared meal.

I LOVE this.

I think it's sweet, like a tiny jewel box. And she can bake a cherry pie in it too.

It is the perfect kitchen. Efficient and beautiful.

I agree. I love this - I prefer a galley kitchen's efficiency; big kitchens are overrated. And I do not like the trend of open kitchens. I like to close the doors after I'm done cooking - I am a messy cook.

Gorgeous kitchen, I love how compact yet beautiful it is.

i read an interview with the homeowner/designer of this kitchen where she described the how she had to meticulously and repeatedly measure everything she keeps in her kithcen, down to the spice bottles and utensils, in order to pull this off. everything fits exactly in a specified place and there is no room for error. not being able to buy a new cooking tool without first knowing the dimensions seems stressful to me.

When I watch real estate shows the thing that drives me craziest is when people complain about galley kitchens being too small. You can't fit more than three people at a time in my parents' kitchen, but my mom can make Thanksgiving dinner for 26 just fine. How much space do you really need?

This is much more impressive than some big showoffy "Something's Gotta Give" kitchen that is mostly about stylistics and pretending to be Old Money.

I'm planning a small kitchen redo just like this - only my budget for the entire job is less than the price of her fridge, certainly less than the fridge & faucet!

How cute is that!

The kitchen is gorgeous, but the reason it works is because there's also an unpictured PANTRY for all the storage. That's really cheating.
