Every kitchen comes with a unique challenge. Some have little storage. Some have no workspace. Some have an awkward traffic flow. Some are just plain cramped and uninviting.

Over the years we’ve amassed a stockpile of small kitchen ideas—from how to brighten up dark corners to how to put every square inch to work. Kitchen design doesn’t have to be painful—or sacrificial—when it comes to small spaces, it just has to be a hair more clever. Lucky for you, we’ve got a handful of smart approaches right here.
