Beautifully designed small kitchens often exude the perfect combination of cosiness and functionality. Little conveniences have been installed, storage is maximised and there is likely to be a great little working triangle.

Well, today we have collected 7 of the most beautifully designed small kitchens around. We hope you love them as much as we do!
This little kitchen has a U-shaped design. It's a classic choice that works really well within an open-plan layout. The kitchen is separate and beautifully integrated into the living room.
