Cabinetry helps to conceal more than just dishes in this sleek open kitchen. A hidden refrigerator blends seamlessly along a wall of glossy cabinets, while a combination of pendant and recessed lighting illuminate the whole space.
When considering where to splurge and where to budget, Minneapolis homeowner Patti Wagner says the key is to make a list and update it during the remodeling process so you don't get carried away and splurge on everything. Her paneled refrigerator was a Craigslist steal, and the microwave was a floor model with a steep discount. A friend who was remodeling and needed different-sized kitchen appliances sold them the stove, hood range and oven. “At the end, no one can tell which items were purchased at a budget,” she says. “Also, be patient and don't be afraid to consider second-hand items.”

These features make this space especially functional as well as keeps the rest of the home's design sleek, clean and free from unnecessary, bulky appliances.
To open up the kitchen to the rest of the living area meant losing a wall of cabinets. But the designers added lots of hidden storage to make up for it: A microwave is tucked inside the peninsula; a glass storage cabinet is built in on one wall; and there is a huge pull-out pantry next to the refrigerator.

Just after the entry but before we get to the living space, is the heart of the home, our kitchen. No compromises were made in this surprisingly expansive kitchen designed by Randy Jones of Incredible Tiny Homes whose motto is "Choose Tiny, Live Free."

I’m especially drawn to the way the gray upper cabinets compliment the blue lower cabinets against the wood butcher block counters. Last but not least, the ladder takes us to the tiny home master.
