most of us have been there at one time or another — living with a teeny tiny kitchen. i’ve experienced a small kitchen more often than i can remember, and while cooking can be challenging (i’m having flashbacks of wrangling that thanksgiving turkey into a mini oven!), it doesn’t mean your kitchen can’t be amazing. rental ads probably call these kinds of kitchens ‘charming’ and for good reason — they are. i always found when living in these kinds of quarters that the best way to organize was to go up! vertical storage is your friend — your BFF. i’ve used vintage potato chip racks, knife racks, pot racks from IKEA — whatever i could store out of the cupboards and drawers and up the walls offered me up a lot more room for all my kitchen accoutrement. here’s some great looking, small kitchens to inspire you.
