4 Tips When Designing a Tiny Kitchen for BIG Meals: 

1) Go BIG on Your Counter Space

When designing a tiny kitchen that will be used for cooking BIG meals, make sure to allocate plenty of counter space for food prep. Folding countertops can provide additional space that can disappear when not in use. Remember that counter space is multi-functional, and can be used as a dinning space, work space or for organizing groceries.

2) Purchase Space-Saving Kitchen Tools

Purchase space-saving kitchen tools, such as multi-tools, that are storable. For example, this set of nesting bowls comes with up to nine pieces, but takes up the same amount of space as one large mixing bowl. Research other space-saving and multi-functional kitchen gadgets that will allow you to declutter your tiny kitchen without sacrificing essential tools for cooking big meals.

3) Go Compact with Appliances

If you’re unable to combine appliances, try finding compact alternatives. Purchase a compact microwave instead of the regular or industrial size. After all, this appliance is not called a micro-wave to consume you’re entire kitchen! Choose a compact rice maker, compact blender, compact coffee maker, etc. Check out this website for a full list of compact appliances.

4) Go Big on Your Kitchen Sink

Many tiny kitchen owners choose to install a small sink to save counter space, but if you’re an avid chef, a small sink is not practical. Instead choose a large, deep sink (or double sink) and purchase a cutting board sink cover to expand your counter space. Install a retractable faucet so that you can clean dishes with more flexibility and fill pots with ease.
