Square metre challenge part 3: clutter-free, maxed mini kitchen

01 May 2016

It’s a big job for a tiny kitchen to have space to store, prepare and enjoy home-cooked meals every day. In this episode, we pushed ourselves to make a small modern kitchen for a couple. To do it, we maximised in and out. Check out the bedroom and living room, too.

“There’s room to cook and move around in the small kitchen because of maximised storage and versatile solutions. Modern fronts make it feel calm and spacious, too.”
