Small Kitchen

A tall piece of furniture can draw the eye up and away from a kitchen's modest footprint. This cupboard functions as a sideboard as well as a place for storage—a boon for those with limited cabinet space.

—Loecke stocked the shelves with a hodgepodge of china, including flea market pieces. "You wouldn't be drawn to the hutch or find it as interesting if the china were all white," he says.

—A round table fits more easily in a tight space than a square or rectangular one and seats more people.
