Interiors: Compact Kitchens

My dream home is modest but my dream kitchen is giant with butcher block and concrete counter tops. Until that dream becomes a reality though, I'm regularly finding inspiration from compact kitchens with clever storage like open shelving, baskets to contain tools and supplies, and hooks for pots and pans. I love the dish storage in the last image - sitting the plates vertically instead of horizontally saves tons of space and it looks awesome. It's such a simple solution and one I need to employ stat. Any other clever space saving tricks you've utilized in the kitchen?

What a wonderful collection of kitchens! I tried to pick a favorite, but I just couldn't. They are ALL so lovely.

These are so impressive. I have a big kitchen (for Bay Area standards), but still, I'm constantly fantasizing about better ways to store things. I've been coveting one of those hang-wine-glasses-upside-down racks forever. I'm sure it's not too hard to install one?

In any case, these images are inspiring!

very creative and space-saving ideas here!

years ago i had a kitchen that was about 8 x 5, including cabinetry and stove. NO JOKE. it was teenincy! let's just say it was best to cook alone in that kitchen!

I really love the one with the vintage fridge. I am totally the kind of person who loves a huge kitchen and chose my apartment based on the large kitchen alone, but something about that charming little space just made me feel so cozy and happy!
