  • Hej! (Swedish)

  • We know more and more people are living in small spaces and spending time on home-cooked meals.

  • So we challenged ourselves to make a fully functional, clutter-free kitchen as small as possible for a mature couple in the city.

  • The key is to use maximised storage and versatile solutions that create space to cook and move around freely.

  • We started by using as much of the height and width as possible for closed storage and a work area.

  • The room feels spacious and calm with modern, sleek fronts.

  • Two kitchen musts are here--and the oven's even a microwave.

  • We included a dishwasher, which means the fridge doesn't fit on this wall.

  • It's over here and still close to everything.

  • There's more storage and another work area so two people can cook without getting in each other's way.

  • We also used part of this wall for display shelves.

  • They add personality and hold some favorite pieces that get used every day.

  • Here, we've put a stepstool for stuff that's hard to reach and foldable chairs as extra seating.

  • They're out of the way and easy to access.

  • What about the table?

  • The leaves are folded down during cook time, so there's plenty of room to work and relax.

  • When it's time to eat, there's a table for two with a comfy side-by-side window view.

  • That's a lot of storage; work space and function in one kitchen, but we squeezed it down to 6.5 square metres.

  • We had to build it, of course.

  • Come on in.

  • We'll show you all the ingredients.

  • Well-planned, flexible interiors make it easy to find what you need when you need it.

  • And surfaces are kept clear.

  • Over here, there's more work room for different activities like preparing and serving.

  • Even if it's small, the kitchen is still the heart of the home with comfort and character.

  • Ready to find the possibilities in your small space?

  • Use maximised storage, sleek fronts and versatile solutions to create a modern, clutter-free kitchen with room for two to cook with love.

  • Happy planning!
