Anyone who's ever lived in a small apartment knows that space is a precious commodity. That's because when your kitchen is on the small side, every inch counts — and the more room you can free up, the bigger your space will feel. Along with ridding your kitchen of unnecessary clutter, one smart strategy is to be intentional about what you bring into your space. Ask yourself, "Do I need this? Does it work for the way I cook and live? How will I use this item, and where will I store it?"

Being real with those answers will help you make thoughtful choices around designing your kitchen, which will ultimately help your kitchen feel larger than it is. Right-size storage, bright dishware, and clever space-saving items can transform a small kitchen in practical and aesthetic ways — so not only can you maximize space and cook more efficiently, but you'll also be able to make your kitchen look more cohesive. And who doesn't want that?

Read on for 10 super-smart swaps and improvements that can make a teeny-tiny kitchen feel roomy and welcoming.
