Small Kitchen. Small Kitchen Deisgn Ideas. The countertop in this kitchen is honed "thunder white granite". Lisa Gabrielson Design.


You have seen many inspiring kitchen designs everywhere but nothing seems to be the right inspiration for your small space and you wonder if you can have the kitchen of your dreams within your limited square footage. Well, the answer is yes! You can always have a beautiful and, more importantly, useful kitchen regardless of how small your space is. What you need is the right inspiration and the right tips on how to design a small kitchen.

Take this white kitchen for example. The shape of this room is not the easiest one to work with, but by being creative and removing the upper cabinets, designer Lisa Gabrielson from Lisa Gabrielson Design, brought light and an airy feel to the space, taking away any claustrophobic feeling that many small kitchens have. The designer also added a charming barn door to a pantry located in the eating nook to bring personality to the space without compromising on storage space.

If you’re planing to renovate your outdated small kitchen and transforming it into a modern, fun and practical white kitchen, this post should help you. Make sure to take notes on the designer’s sources and paint colors!


Small White Kitchen Design

Kitchen Backsplash. Kitchen Backsplash Ideas. Lisa Gabrielson Design.

The focal wall in this kitchen features open shelving, subway tile, and stainless appliances.

The white subway tiles are standard 3×6 subway tile from Lowes. They’re very affordable and pretty! The color is not a stark white, which gives it some warmth without being too creamy. The grout color is “oyster”.

The shelves are custom, but the brackets are from Home Depot, painted to match the shelves.

The range is by “Kitchen Aid”.

The hood is a “Cavaliere”.


 Farmhouse Sink

Kitchen Sink. Farmhouse sink ideas.

  I love the idea of flanking the farmhouse sink with a pair of table lamps. It brings some warmth and color to this kitchen.

The lamps are vintage mid-century painted blue with “Pottery Barn” shades.

The fabric used on the custom shades are “City Squares by Thom Filicia”.

Also, notice the absence of backsplash. This adds a more natural feel to the space.

Kitchen hardware is from “Restoration Hardware”,  polished nickel. Lugarno collection.


  Breakfast Room

Breakfast Nook. Breakfast Nook Design Ideas.

 This breakfast room is full of creative ideas! It’s casual and perfect for family living.

The bench is custom, but you can find a very similar one at “Ballard Designs”. The fabric is by Sunbrella.

The designer used 1×6 tongue and groove planks on the reverse on the ceiling to achieve this rustic feel.

The barn door are custom built locally. The paint is applied in layers. The technique the designer uses is very organic. Basically, light paint, then dark paints are applied, sanded in spots, and waxed to seal. The dark wax is added sparingly in areas to give it patina.

Barn Door Paint Color: It is a mix of Annie Sloan chalk paint in white, Paris grey, and duck egg with dark and clear waxes on top.

The light fixture was custom made by the designer.


 Bench Fabric

Home Decor. Easy Home Decor Ideas.

The gorgeous hand-painted barn doors conceal the pantry.


 White Kitchen Paint Color

"Benjamin Moore Paint Colors. "Benjamin Moore Mascarpone AF-20". #BenjaminMoore #Mascarpone #AF20

Cabinet Paint Color: “Benjamin Moore Mascarpone AF-20”.

This urban farmhouse kitchen went from dated gold and black to polished white with hints of grey, blue and silver. Special custom touches render this space very special, yet totally family-friendly. How not to love it, right?

The countertop in this kitchen is honed “thunder white granite” with 1/4″ bevel edge detail.

Rug is from Target.

What a wonderful kitchen this is! I wish I had more pictures to share but I hope the information given here can help and inspire you.

Today will be a very busy day, from cleaning the entire house, to drive the kids to school, hockey and prepare a new post for tomorrow (you’ll come back to see it, right? 🙂 ) I know I will not have much time for anything else, but I have to say this, regardless of how busy our life is, we have to keep focusing on what’s important to us. Forget the pressure! Do what you need to do but don’t forget to live. I will have to run from point “A” to “B” all day long today, but I will do my best to keep focusing on the good things that will be happening along.

Always remember to keep focused on what matters to you.

Have a Blessed day, my friends. We’ll again talk tomorrow.

with Love,

    Wow, what an amazing kitchen! I love how bright it is, though I’m not sure how I feel about the table lamps by the sink–never seen that before. The little breakfast nook is absolutely adorable. Definitely my favorite part!
