We’ve seen almost a hundred small spaces that prove we can still have a comfortable and efficient home even in a limited floor area. While it’s always surprising and inspiring to see how one can make the most of the available space, we can’t help but look into the specific areas that they were able to carve out within a compact unit.

Since the kitchen is one of the busiest areas at home, it would be interesting to see how it’s kept pretty, clean, and functional. To give you ideas on how you can spruce up your own space, here are eight well-equipped cooking havens that you would surely love:
