Design knows no boundaries and this is true of kitchens, living rooms, or even lofts for that matter. There always is the opportunity to imbibe your own personal sense of space into the area of your home that you are designing. When it comes to a smaller kitchen, you might not exactly love the fact that there are only a couple of feet between your refrigerator door and the cabinets, but with the right use of color, patterns and materials you can turn the narrowest gallery kitchen into a haven! We've scoured the homify diaries to present to you the cream of the crop of small kitchens.

2. Open shelving for the kitchen

Open shelves have a charm of their own as this next kitchen demonstrates. The interesting feature of open shelving is that you have plenty of room for experimentation. You could either choose to keep your pots and pans out in the open or choose to make use of baskets or containers to keep them. With the latter, you have the choice of switching things up a bit when it comes to color, patterns and design. Cupboard doors can make your kitchen look cramped, so opt for these open plan shelves instead.

3. When materials play coy in the kitchen

Walnut wooden cabinets add a refreshing touch to the kitchen shifting focus away from its size. A marble white counter top contrasts the cabinets while the tiling of the kitchen wall meets the two in between. How's that for refreshing?
