People will notice if you put in an unimpressive faucet," says Peter LaBau, a Charlottesville, Va.-based architect whose book The New Bungalow Kitchen, from Taunton Press, offers great ideas for quality kitchen design. Peter just remodeled his own master bath, for which his finish of choice was nickel. "I‘m a big fan," he says. When bonded to brass, nickel plating reveals a golden luster that standard chrome plating does not.

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.

White says no matter the storage options you choose, make sure to consider proper aisle space and traffic flow.

There are many kitchen sink materials to choose from, including stainless-steel, enameled cast iron, fireclay, quartz silicate and solid surface.

The two-walled design of a galley kitchen maintains the traditional "work triangle" that‘s essential to any effective kitchen design—this refers to the triangle created by the stove, refrigerator and sink. If cooks can easily access all of these kitchen features, cooking will be much more efficient and enjoyable.
