Several appliances should be in your kitchen, making it challenging to fit them all in your space. But, here is how to do it:
Tips when writing a list or plan:
Create a budget
Consider your kitchen’s layout to choose compact appliances that complement its structure
Functionality should be your priority over aesthetics
Also consider your family, how many members are you in the household, and how often you entertain guests. What type of foods you usually eat at home and your tendency to eat late should also be considered.
A small refrigerator with small freezer comes in different types, such as:
Mini-me: This type of small refrigerator is usually 12 cubic feet 18 to 24 inches wide, smaller than an apartment size fridge.
Dorm-style: It is a 2 to 5 cubic feet apartment size refrigerator, an ideal item for a small kitchen.
Drawer: You can fit this 24 inches wide compact refrigerator in your cabinetry!
Counter-depth: Small kitchen appliances like this refrigerator won’t look out of place in kitchen counters and cabinets.
Consider the following when choosing a cooktop:

Wherever-you-want-it cooktops: It’s an ultra-compact 12- to 15-inch cooktop you can set up wherever you want. It has one or two burners.
