Part of working with a tiny space is helping it to look and feel larger than it really is, as well as make it more comfortable. To this end, consider using only lower cabinets in your kitchen and replacing the uppers with shelves. This accomplishes two things; it makes the kitchen seem larger than it is by opening things up, and it gives you more versatility in how you store things. Cabinets take up more room than they give you. They also have a set number of shelves inside, as well as spacing between them. By putting up your own shelves you can make better use of the whole space, getting more versatility and storage at once.
Tiny kitchens can also be short on counter space, so consider bringing in more with a moving island. An island with wheels allows you to bring it in when it’s needed, then move it to the side, into a closet, or into an adjoining room when it’s not. Most islands also give you additional storage, so you can designate yours for a specific purpose and store all the relevant items there, such as making a baking cart and storing your flour, sugar, rolling pin, and cookie cutters there. When it’s time to bake, the island comes out and you have all the counter space you need and all of your baking items right at hand.
