Product> Small Spaces and High Design in the Kitchen

Tight spaces shouldn’t dictate a sacrifice in style or function, particularly when it comes to outfitting the kitchen. Our round-up of sleek and compact kitchen products below proves good things do come in small packages.

G925 Door in Moka Glass

Small kitchens and baths call for innovative wall surfaces. Porcelanosa’s semi-custom kitchen includes the G-925 (above), a flat surface door finish with the company’s Moka Glass and walnut veneer. The cabinets come in a choice of nine colors and feature integrated handles, which give them a seamless look that can be re-configured to fit any space.

Convertible Wall Mount Glass Canopy Hood

Whirlpool’s glass canopy hood fits snugly above a 30-inch stove, has a 3-speed push button control and dishwasher safe mesh filters. The stainless hood can be converted to recirculate air with optional kits for both ductless installation as well as a chimney extension. The canopy clears smoke, odors, and grease and includes a built-in incandescent light for illuminating your cooktop.

Starck High Arc Prep Kitchen Faucet

French designer Philippe Starck has created a sleek collection that would make any kitchen Top Chef worthy. His High Arc Prep Faucet features a single ergonomic pull-down handle with full and needle sprays. The fixture comes in chrome or stainless and is installed with a 150 degree swivel spout.

C6GGXU 24-inch Stove

Italian appliance manufacturer Smeg is know for their 1950’s retro-style refrigerators in pop colors. The company also offers cooktops, dishwashers, and a petite 24-inch freestanding gas range, which fits snugly into small urban kitchens. Made from stainless steel with ergonomic control knobs, cast-irongrates, and automatic ignition, the range also has ample storage space below.


When is a kitchen not a kitchen? Hamburg-based architect and designer Hadi Teherani seems to know. His collaboration with Poggenpohl breaks the barrier of the standard fitted cooking area. By fusing wall, floor, ceiling, lighting, sound, and storage, the kitchen is brought to the forefront, making it a place to work, cook, and entertain.

Miele Combi-Steam Oven

With Miele’s revolutionary new wall-mounted stainless steel combi-oven, everyone’s a gourmet cook. The transfer of heat is faster and more efficient, while the dual operations allows the unit to function as either a steam or a convection oven. Used in tandem, the oven is ideal for browning, caramelizing, and braising, allowing one unit to multi-task and save valuable cooking space.

18-inch Bar Handle Dishwasher

Bosch has come up with a powerful little workhorse for small kitchens. The 18-inch bar handle dishwasher is quiet and efficient with washing capacity for nine place settings. Deceptively simple in design and operation, this unit has a 30-minute cycle, is energy efficient, and saves hundreds of gallons of water per year.


While small and compact, Snaidero’s new Board kitchen is ideal for an open plan. The cantilevered unit was designed by Pietro Arosio and made of Corian in two sizes and two finishes, including Igloo white or Texture Grey. Outfitted with basin-like receptacles for storage, waste, and sink, the unit seamlessly connects to a wall storage system and can be adapted to fit any space.
