Small American kitchen: 60 projects to inspire

THE small american kitchen is a trend in recent years due to the growth of smaller homes. In this way, the integrated social environments make clear the change of the concept of cooking, transforming it into a fun and creative activity for the residents of the house. With the proposal of open kitchen this integration is evident, taking space amplitude without the need to knock down walls.

In spite of the integration, it is not necessary that the decoration of these environments are equal, after all are different functions and rooms that consequently allow a visual contrast. One option is to leave, for example, the room in a more neutral tone and in the kitchen in reverse. To create visual continuity, just use the same floor, leaving the boundary with the plaster lining.

Designing a small environment is a challenge! But with some inspiring research and projects it is possible to plan the space in a fun and functional way. Check out some ideas on how to decorate a small American kitchen:
