Small kitchens are unique because they make you think more creatively about how you can get the storage you need and the style you want.

Professional kitchen planners are adept at creating breathtaking spaces that lose no functionality due to small proportions and we've found some of their best projects out there to show you today. You honestly won't believe how incredible your tiny kitchen could look, if you take inspiration from some of these brilliant projects.
