FOLDING DOORSIn Bill Brockschmidt's 640-square foot apartment, the kitchen can be found in the entry hall and camouflaged from your living area. "Creating folding doors allowed us to transform the entrance right into a mini-gallery when we amuse," Brockschmidt says. "We can also close off the dining room in the kitchen with pocket doors, so that once guests have arrived, we can open up the kitchen for cooking."
STRIKING SHELFAlthough his customers requested a bank of open shelving, designer Grant K. Gibson added a single ledge to their galley kitchen. "One shelf is easy and dynamic," he says. "You must have the ability to hide jumble, and this way, you'll be able to rotate your groups!"
ELECTRIC COOKTOPThis miniature New York kitchen has a place for everything, says designer Stephanie Stokes. "After design so many kitchens for other folks, I understood just what I desired and what I wanted," she says. A mirrored backsplash, an electric cooktop that doubles as uncomplicated cabinetry help and countertop provide the illusion of grandeur.
MONOCHROME TILE"The kitchen is a great size, but little by Dallas standards," Craig Schumacher says of the Texas kitchen he shares with partner Philip Kirk. An extensive remodel was averted by them by installing low-cost white and black tile and painting cabinets Benjamin Moore Brilliant White. An extensive ironstone set overflows from shelves to walls.
MOVEABLE BARThe galley kitchen in Juan Carretero's New York flat got two doorways, among which opens right into the family room. To get counter space — and enhance the perspective — a bar that is movable on casters crosses the gap.
SUBWAY TILETo falsify a bright farmhouse kitchen in a Manhattan apartment, Celerie Kemble painted the cabinets the White Dove of Benjamin Moore. The white-tiled walls, as well as a milk-glass as well as brass hardware chandelier, create the illusion of sunlight that is added.
POT RACKBulky pans can take up valuable real-estate, so Urban Archaeology's Industrial pot rack was installed by Katie Ridder . The tasteful barstools from Cherner Chair Company are a 1958 layout by Norman Cherner and are cushioned in MK Collection's Summer Strié.

OPEN SHELVINGThe kitchen in a Napa Valley ranch has open ledges instead of upper cabinets for an airy feel. The shelves and countertops are galvanized metal, and the cabinetry is manufactured out of old fencing. Classic truck springs were found at Artefact Design & Salvage. Owner Ken Fulk and designer spotted the classic industrial pendant lights in the Paris flea market.
MINIATURE CUPBOARDSDesigner Amanda Nisbet injected heat right into a modern Manhattan apartment with Tom Dixon Mirror Ball pendants and a Macassar wood island. To squeeze in additional storage, small cubbies fill in the space above a bright window.
