Here are three ingenious solutions to help kit out even the smallest of cooking spaces.
6 June 2017
The kitchen is often dubbed “the heart of the home” because it not only dishes out food to feed its inhabitants, but has also become a gathering space for meals, conversation and bonding. For those with petite kitchens (let’s face it, that’s most of us), owning a fully-featured kitchen may seem out of reach. Don’t fret because help is on the way! Here are some of our favourite solutions to help materialise your dream kitchen.
#1 The Scala Slim Drawer
Scala’s slim drawer box with aluminium effect and square profiled sides won the German Design Award 2016. Its scalability means it can adapt to any given dimensions while its easy-to-install feature using unique Clip technology allows it to be set up quickly without any tools. Various design elements can be achieved through customisation of the drawer’s L-shaped profiles.

#2 The Bertazzoni Professional Range Cooker
With a heritage starting from 1882, Bertazzoni is the Rolls Royce of freestanding cookers. The Bertazzoni Professional Range Cooker is designed for small footprints. It features triple-layer coating for extended durability and a triple-glazed door to minimise heat. An enamel interior makes it easy to wipe down too. The hob is precision-moulded from one piece of stainless steel and can be customised with different-sized gas burners. Its unique dual-ring wok burner with independently controlled flames for 5kw power cooking is perfect for Chinese stir-fry dishes.
#3 Tivali from Dada
Dada remains as one of Italy’s best kitchen design manufacturers. Its latest design, Tivali, is actually an update of its 2004 version designed by Dante Bonuccelli. Suited for homes with limited kitchen space, Tivali changes its shape from linear to a corner solution. While its basic elements remain unchanged, it now offers large folding doors that glide into the side compartments with a light, fluid touch, all thanks to a mechanism designed in the 1990s by Luca Meda and patented by Dada. Once you’re done with cooking, hide the kitchen simply by closing the smooth-gliding doors. Tivali is fully operative in sizes of 266cm or 326cm, which is perfect for mid-size apartments.
