With the way people like to cook these days, it seems like home kitchens are just getting bigger and bigger. While that’s all well and good for people who have spacious enough homes to allow for such a thing, not all of us are so blessed! Some of us, whether we want to or not, are stuck with small kitchens!

In either case, don’t get green with envy thinking about all those huge kitchens you see elsewhere. With smart design, your small kitchen can be bigger in terms of aesthetics and functionality than the biggest kitchens there are!
