Your open plan kitchen can be a very flexible space. For example, use folding sliding doors and you can have a contemporary open plan space that can be made smaller if required.
Pay particular attention to a kitchen's three major components -- cabinets, countertops and appliances. Chances are, you'll notice that in the most satisfying and visually compelling kitchens, there is at least some variety within each of those categories. In any given kitchen, a single style of cabinet can have different finishes. The countertops on one side of a room could be different from those on the opposite side. The dishwasher and range might be stainless steel, but the refrigerator can be camouflaged by a cabinet-matching panel. A cooktop's backsplash might be ceramic tile, but the ones flanking the sink could be painted beadboard.
A great choice for the kitchen is thermally modified wood shelving. Modified wood is going to be able to handle the high moisture and spikes of heat in a kitchen as well as the constant movement of dishware on the shelf surface. Better yet, modified wood is a green option that doesn't require any staining or sealing, so you don't need to worry about chemicals transferring to your dishes.
The best of small kitchen design focuses on function and flow. No matter the size of the kitchen, smart appliance placement can help create a comfortable, workable environment. Good design dictates that the refrigerator be near food preparation counters, and that sinks be placed next to dishwashers for easy loading. Meanwhile, stoves want workspace and handy storage for cooking accessories, cupboards for pots and pans, and drawers for utensils.
