Clutter is the last thing you need in a small kitchen. The space is already limited and putting all your appliances on the countertop will not work well. But don’t worry, there’s a solution for this. You can create a simple appliance garage within the kitchen. A garage in this sense means storage like a cabinet that can be used to keep away the appliances. This will free up more space and make the kitchen more attractive.

Although wicker furniture is not very common when you are thinking about kitchen furniture, it can really do magic for a small kitchen. Wicker furniture always seems to have a way with small spaces. A giant dining table at the center and a few wicker chairs on the side will do. The dining table will not only be the perfect dinner spot but it’s also an ideal work surface. Appliances can be stacked away in the cabinetry.
