Even if you're not the best of cooks - or even if you hate to cook, a kitchen always is a central part of any home: gathering at the kitchen table, being able to grab a snack in the middle of the day, having a hot tea or coffee... I don't know about you, but if a house doesn't have a kitchen, it feels more like a hotel room than a home to me!
When it comes to tiny houses, however, things get a little bit more complicated. Downsizing means losing a lot of space, losing rooms, losing storage space... Or does it? Actually, not necessarily. Most tiny home builders are well aware of the need for every house to have a kitchen, and it's in their kitchen designs where their creativity and craftsmanship really shines through. Let's review these 13 of the prettiest and most functional "tiny" kitchens/
1.Tiny Heirloom's Elegant model's kitchen.
Tiny Heirloom's designs stand out for their cleanliness, functionality and elegance. Here you have a beautiful white and black kitchen with a four-burner stove, oven, full fridge and a gorgeous and oversized sink.
2. Wind River Tiny Homes Nomad's Nest kitchen.
Wind River Tiny Homes demonstrate that you don't need a lot of space to have a fully equipped kitchen. The Nomad's Nest includes a full-sized refrigerator, a four-burner stove with an oven, a beautiful sink and lots of storage space, including a wine rack by the sink.
Shelley and Joshua built their awesome tiny abode in just 7 days. Being avid entertainers, they wanted a house with a super complete kitchen. The huge sink sits across a full refrigerator. You can also see the beautiful vintage copper pots above the four-burner stove with oven.
4. Teach Nollaig's workshop-like kitchen.
Noel Higgins designed and built his own tiny home, the Teach Nollaig. As you can see, its charming rustic kitchen comes with a Belfast Lab sink and a two-burner gas stove.
5. Leaf house's kitchen.
Leaf House Small Space Design & Build is a Canadian company that specializes in building houses for extreme, cold environments. Thus, not only the best materials but also the warmest of the interiors, of which this rustic, wooden kitchen is a perfect example.
6. Custom Container Living's rustic kitchen.
Built out of a shipping container, this gorgeous house contains a fully functional kitchen, with birch cabinets and a Formica countertop. It's fully equiped with a built-in oven and microwave, a two-burner countertop, a refrigerator, a washer-dryer combo and a beautiful stainless steel sink.
7. Tiny Heirloom's Craftsman.
This other model from Tiny Heirloom is also stunning. Notice the brick wall look behind the sink, the tall water spigot, and the staggered corner shelves.
8. Wandering on Wheels' kitchen.
Brian and Sky also built their tiny house themselves, proving that it definitely can be done the right way! Their pristine kitchen features everything one could ask for: Plenty of storage space, a huge and beautiful sink, a 2-burner sunken, a Breville oven, and a full fridge. Details such as the salvage store wood countertop or the open shelves just add more uniqueness and light to their "tiny" kitchen.
9. Tiny Living Ltd.'s oversized kitchen.
Tiny Living Ltd. opted for an oversized kitchen for this model and one has to admit it's a total win. From the photo alone, it'd be impossible to tell you're in a tiny house instead of in a regular-sized one. The sunlight bathes every corner of this gorgeous white kitchen with a full-size refrigerator, a 4-burner stove with oven and the double sink. This model also comes with a washer/dryer combo.
10. Wild Wood Lakefront Cottage's kitchen.
Will Wood Lakefront Cottage has built a tiny home with a very unusual feature in the kitchen: an island. The island is able to seat two, and it sits across a beautiful wooden kitchen including a 4-burner stove, an oven, a double sink and even a diswasher.
11. Minim Home's open kitchen.
If you're more into the more modern, completely open look, Minim Homes is definitely for you. This wide kitchen is 10 feet, and it includes a refrigerator under the counter, a 2-burner stove, and a built-in cutting board. The full-size microwave also works as a convection oven.
12. Green Leaf Tiny Home's Kootenay model's kitchen.
Green Leaf Tiny Homes have designed the Kootenay to be open and versatile, and so is its kitchen. Depending on your needs, you can have a kitchen with a bar and breakfast nook as depicted above, or you can extend the kitchen along the wall. Another incredible feature of this house is the amount of storage space it hosts, with tons and tons of drawers. It features a full-sized fridge, a 2-burner stove, and a washer/dryer combo.
13. Valley View Tiny Houses' Yosemite Tiny House.
Valley View Tiny Houses' Yosemite model focuses on "on convenience and space maximization." The openness of the floor plan is extremely inviting and cozy at the same time, showcasing a kitchen in L-shape that features a flip-up eating nook by the huge stainless steel sink. The induction cooktop can be tuck away when not in use, but rests beautifully on the acacia hardwood countertops. This kitchen also includes a full-sized refrigerator, and a convection microwave.
