tiny kitchen

It brings me great joy to introduce our new tiny kitchen.

Do you keep in mind where we started eighteen months ago? Brace yourself, hide the youngsters&#8230.

This is a 400 square foot space, with a bathroom, that&#8217s attached to the back of our barn. In its previous life it was a extremely dude-ly workplace for the old sawmill that&#8217s on our home. When we bought the residence and property, I didn&#8217t even fully comprehend this space was back right here. It was all an overwhelming mess and now it&#8217s one particular of my favourite spaces.

More than the past year we&#8217ve primed and painted the walls and ceiling, painted the concrete floor, ripped out the old sink and cabinet and added in lots of gorgeous, affordable pretties.

One particular more before, due to the fact can you even believe the distinction? This proves that Each and every Space has prospective. Every one particular of them. No space is as well far gone to be lovely, and the most inexpensive item&#8211paint, almost always tends to make the greatest difference.

Let&#8217s speak about some of the largest adjustments.


1. Clean &amp Paint

When I 1st saw the space, I didn&#8217t even like getting in the room. It was filthy, smelly and dark. All I knew was that it necessary to be disinfected and sealed with some primer and white paint. I didn&#8217t care to make any other plans for the office, all that mattered at 1st was a couple of coats of primer and some white paint.


Right after everything was white and we could in fact see what we have been dealing with, we began arranging the room.

Yes, let&#8217s attempt to function in a tiny kitchen! This kitchen will assist with the barn events we have&#8211so I don&#8217t need a lot of pots and pans, but much more of a spot to heat up and retailer food and drinks and make coffee.

Yes, we can use this as a guest space (we have plans for far more than one twin bed for sleeping) but for now we have a twin.

Yes, this can also be an office for me and serve as the bathroom for the barn!

two. Kitchen Style

We went with Ikea cabinets&#8211we have them in our house kitchen and really like them, they are simple to place collectively and have a 25 year warranty. And those straightforward, sophisticated appliances are from the new GE Artistry Series &#8212 Finally there&#8217s an reasonably priced selection for sleek, straightforward style that we don&#8217t have to sell a car to afford.

Let&#8217s face it, the refrigerator steals the show. It&#8217s all vintage meets contemporary meets adorable and it&#8217s only \$1200. I admit I checked craigslist for the previous year browsing for a SMEG refrigerator&#8211it would have been twice the cost and half the size for the very same style. This is a win!

3. Layout

Because this isn&#8217t a typical kitchen that gets employed every day for a household, we didn&#8217t have to fret over the excellent layout. I truly only had two tiny walls to perform in a complete kitchen so I incorporated a wheeled cart that can be rotated when we need to use the dishwasher, or it can be rolled out of the space into the barn if we want to use it as a serving cart.

I&#8217m so happy with my cute tiny kitchen!

It took us about a year to get this tiny space to exactly where it is these days. This kitchen wall offers me great hope for the untouched locations in our residence, the bathrooms, basement, screened in porch&#8230it&#8217s such a excellent reminder to appear back at exactly where a area started and examine it to where it is these days.
