If any of the walls are load-bearing, your decision may be made for you (you should probably keep those). But if you‘re relatively free and clear to take down any internal walls, you‘ll have an opportunity to keep as few as just one. Single-wall open kitchens are not uncommon, and they create the most open feel of any design—but you‘ll sacrifice a bit of storage to implement a one-walled open kitchen design.

Because visual clutter can minimize an already small space, approach your small kitchen redesign with the charge of keeping things simple. Attain simplicity by keeping countertops clutter-free. Take advantage of unused space, like a bare wall, the alcove above the cabinetry or an empty window sill to add decor sparingly. Uniformity also produces simplicity, as evidenced in a monochromatic color palette and grouping similar items. For example, create visual continuity by pairing like items such as a collection of decorative plates, a set of storage baskets or a grouping of photos in coordinating black frames.

Then infuse color and pattern through window treatments, a room-anchoring rug, or upholstery in a built-in banquette. Both basics work to soften the kitchen and are a reflection of your personal design style, be it casual or formal, classic or modern. During the decorating process, remember to look up and assess your lighting situation. Although recessed and under-cabinet lights leave the smallest footprint in a small kitchen, a pair of pendant lamps above the center island or a trendy drum shade above the built-in breakfast nook will give the kitchen a finished look.

According to Jack Healy, the increasing popularity of stone sinks is part of a larger design trend toward Old World style natural materials, such as stone, wood and copper, and away from man-made materials like stainless steel. Jack, who‘s been selling what he terms "functional art" for more than 10 years, says that people want utilitarian objects to be beautiful, and stone is a good way to have both form and function. And, he notes, your kitchen won‘t look like your neighbor‘s, because every piece of stone is intrinsically different.

Lighting is a particularly key feature of open kitchen designs, since open designs tend to incorporate more space than their closed-in counterparts. Finding the right balance of coverage, style and function can be a challenge, but if you focus on the three basic lighting types—main, decorative and task—you should have no problem lighting your open kitchen design. For main lighting, consider a track that encircles the room or runs through the middle of the entire design. A chandelier or large handing pendant can light the dining room space. Task lighting is a great idea for sink, cooking and food prep areas. And finally, decorative lighting can be a great feature for the tops and bottoms of cabinets.

Exchange pendant lights for recessed lighting and swap space-hogging appliances for models that can be tucked in drawers. Secondly, make a place for everything and put everything in its place. To this end, consider a pullout pantry or extend a windowsill for an extra storage perch. So that your tiny kitchen layout works double-duty, install a retractable eat-in peninsula that doubles as counter/dining space. Opt for chairs that also serve as seating in the living room. Every culinary headquarters needs a space for dining. Whether you have an island or a peninsula, utilize this surface in your small kitchen design for cooking prep, dining and as a buffet for entertaining. Bringing in an island on casters provides a mobile dining space when you need, it and it can be rolled away when you don‘t. Another idea for designing an eat-in space in your small kitchen is to install a built-in booth to accommodate the tight space. With a thoughtful design, you can also use the space underneath the seating for extra kitchen storage.

For example, a set of clear containers or jars to house dry goods, like cereal or grains, is a low-cost and worthy addition to any pantry. Other kitchen pantries and cupboards will benefit from hooks to hang utensils or pots out of the way and free up room for items that require shelf space.
