Compact Kitchenette

In a traditional house, in my experience, people often congregate in the kitchen.  But when it comes to Tiny Houses I’ve noticed that the current layouts often dictate that people gather in the great room or living room, depending on what you call it.  It is for this reason that we want to minimizing our kitchen space to as small as possible, while it still being comfortable and functional.  For some Tiny Apartments in big cities, they leave out a kitchen all together.

If you think about it we spend very little time in the bathroom and the kitchen, so they should be proportioned as such.  We spend 8-12 hours a night in bed, while the rest is in our work/living space or out and about.  I think ultimately Tiny Houses do cause us to get out more, interact with the world around us, that being the man made world and the natural world.

So I found a great kitchenette that seems very useable, but has a very small footprint.  It also has the added bonus of being able to close up and look very presentable when not in use.

 

Uber Tiny Dishwasher

I found this dishwasher that is designed to be a single serving dishwasher, which may be too small, but for some it may be right.  I plan to just hand wash most things, but when it comes to cutting raw meat on a cutting board, I’d like to have something a little more.  Check out this single serving dishwasher with a minimalist design.
