Small Kitchen Design Made Simple   March 10th, 2015

So you can’t fit a pool table in your kitchen. Maybe you can’t fit more than one person in your kitchen. We all know what they say about size, but when you’re planning your own small kitchen remodel, you may (understandably) start off feeling a little limited.
