BOOKMARK

Doing up a kitchen doesn't have to be a nightmare. With the clever use of space and storage, even kitchens in small apartments can contain all you need, whether you like to cook for one or a party of ten.

Here are 12 beautiful and innovative kitchen designs suited for different lifestyles.

1. Checkered flooring might be old-fashioned (headache-inducing even, to some), but the designers have worked them in so perfectly in this kitchen with its dark cabinets and tabletops that it looks absolutely chic and classy.

2. Clean and minimalist, this white kitchen uses an all white table as its centerpiece and wooden chairs and cabinets to soften the look. Not much cooking might go on in this kitchen, but it sure looks good.

4. Typical in many new apartments now are small kitchens. The designers doubled up the worktops as a bar top dining space. It might be small, but it’s more than sufficient for a couple that enjoys cooking for two.

5. This project perhaps shows the cleverest use of space in a studio apartment. Minimal at first sight, the doors open to hidden spaces, even a tiny kitchen area complete with foldable worktop, fridge, sink and shelves. You can't cook up a storm here, but you sure can elicit a sense of amazement from visitors.
