Miniature kitchen is a relatively new concept in Europe or US, but if you pay a visit to Japan or China you will have a big surprise. A typical Japanese apartment has no more than 35 square meters and consists mainly of a single room and a very small bathroom.Forced to work such small areas the Asians had to be inventive and find solution to their countless problems regarding living space. I saw recently such an apartment and it looked quite ok; small but manageable.
The idea is to incorporate as much as possible things in the larger, indispensable objects. The bed for instance was mounted against a wall, in that frame were incorporate a few drawers with a clever elastic system that keep your clothes in place no matter of the bed’s position. And most of all, the kitchen was actually a small cabinet that had a fridge, stove and sink embedded.
This compact kitchen over here is made by the French and it proposes the same compact solutions for our modern tight spaces. I can spot the French finesse from a mile away; everything is in the right place and looks great. The materials should also be taken into consideration because this is not something you can change every year; therefore a quality build was “a must”. As I was saying: it’s small, but manageable and to be honest this more than enough for a young single inhabitant.available for 4,700$.
