Hi there! I’m writing to you from among the fabric…specifically the bedskirt and the curtain fabric I introduced here. It’s been a whirlwind weekend of DIY over here and I’ll be sharing it soon!
Today’s post is inspired by a friend with a question.
Andrea is a grad student in Burlington, Vermont. She just moved into a 450 sq. ft. studio, built in the 1920s. She’s wants to figure out how to make the best use of the space and reflect her fun personality on a grad student budget.
Creating the illusion of space, maximizing storage and making small spaces feel cozy – not cramped – are all common conundrums. Let’s get started!
Today we’ll tackle the kitchen. Click on images for more info.
Andrea’s kitchen has charm, but no counter space. Not pictured is the rolling cart she’s purchased, which will help a bit.
I love the open shelving and would suggest these containers to keep the shelves neat and pretty.
For storage, she’ll need to make her cabinets work overtime.
Food prep is tricky without counter space, but not impossible.
Andrea’s studio kitchen is small, but it can still be defined as its own space.
What are your tips for maximizing a tiny kitchen?
I’ll be back soon with more small space ideas for Andrea’s cute new place. Stay tuned!
