To achieve this, the first thing you should do is to properly address the distribution of the kitchen and make the most of each of the available working meters.
The truth is that there are many ways to approach the distribution of a kitchen, and the choice of the most appropriate will depend on the needs and preferences of each person. Some of the most popular options are L-shaped kitchens, U-shaped kitchens, kitchens with a peninsula and bar or kitchens with an island.
All of these types of spaces have their advantages and disadvantages and it is important to consider aspects such as the size and shape of the room, the location of appliances and the workflow involved in cooking to achieve a successful design.

How to decorate mini kitchens?
The decoration of mini kitchens is important, as it can transform a small and irrelevant space into a comfortable and very practical room, ideal for gathering with family and friends. To achieve this, it is essential to take into account the quality of furniture and accessories, as well as choosing an original and practical design that suits your needs and the style of your home.
Here are some ideas for decorating mini kitchens:
1. Column furniture for appliances
One of the most popular trends in mini kitchens decoration is the use of column furniture for appliances. These allow you to make the most of the available space and are ideal for small kitchens.
These units are usually of a similar height to the appliances and are placed in a corner or next to the countertop. In addition to saving space, column units allow you to have all appliances and kitchen utensils at hand without having to resort to shelves or tall units.
2. Glass partitions to enlarge the space
Another option to make the most of the available space in a mini kitchen is the use of glass doors that connect the living room and the kitchen. These doors create a sense of visual spaciousness and make the most of natural light, as well as facilitating communication between the two rooms. By eliminating the physical barrier that separates the kitchen from the rest of the house, a cozier and more familiar atmosphere is achieved.
3. Resistant and quality worktops
Something that cannot be missing in a mini kitchen is a worktop. These are usually narrower than the traditional ones and allow you to save space without sacrificing functionality.
One of the most popular trends in kitchen countertops is the use of natural materials such as wood and stone, such as those manufactured by ABK Stone. These materials provide warmth and durability, as well as blend well with different kitchen styles. Another material that is gaining ground is quartz, an artificial stone that offers great resistance and is very easy to maintain.

4. Indirect and focal lighting
Another element that is gaining ground is indirect lighting, which creates a warm and cozy atmosphere without taking up additional space. In addition, good lighting can make the kitchen appear larger and brighter.
In this room it is essential to have natural light during the day and, for this, it is advisable to place the points of light in areas that allow maximum use of natural light. It is also important to consider the location of work areas, such as the worktop and sink, and ensure that they are well lit.
Another important consideration is the choice of lighting. There are different types of lamps and bulbs, each with its advantages and disadvantages.
