Here we have a lovely little kitchen that excels at both decor as well as functionality, which is important balance to strike, no matter the size of your kitchen area. One of the things you can do is create a curved counter like the one we have here. This makes it so that you both have extra counter space, and also more floor space. It creates a both/and type of scenario. This is clearly a kitchen that a cook can love too. The jars of spices and such on the counter are not only practical, but they are also very cute.
