This Is How to Pack Big Style Into a Tiny Kitchen

Who: Crystal Ann, interior designer at Crystal Ann Interiors

Where: New York, New York

Why we love this pic: The clean white color palette creates the illusion of more space, while statement tile on the floor adds plenty of personality, eliminating the need for clutter-making decor. Speaking of decor, nearly all of it is functional, with the open shelving simultaneously providing visual intrigue, expanding storage space, and ensuring daily items are at the ready when needed.

The takeaway: You don't need much by way of square footage to make a stylish impact.
