The Smart, Small Kitchen

Finding a home for the fridge was the key to designing a tiny kitchen for serious cooking

Architect Dana Moore transformed the awkward layout of her clients' 100-sq.-ft. L-shaped kitchen into a model of efficiency. The boldest move was relocating the refrigerator to a corner of the living room, where it's cleverly hidden. Once the fridge had a home, Moore had the space she needed to add a fourth corner to the kitchen's work triangle. Distinct workstations now exist, and each is well-lit and has ample counter space. You'll also learn more about what materials Moore used to set a warm, modern tone in this redesigned kitchen.
