Small kitchen: 6 square meters
Kitchens in Khrushchevs are not very large. This circumstance forces many to puzzle over how to fit in a tiny room a fairly large refrigerator, a full-fledged stove with an oven, storage systems, a sink and everything else that is necessary for cooking and washing dishes. We found a vivid example of how to do this at the lowest cost, while visually expanding the space and making it functional.

The space was refreshed thanks to the spring green shade, and the warm colors of ivory and natural wood brought notes of comfort to the interior..
