When doing a small kitchen design for an apartment, possibly a corridor kitchen design or a line design design will be best to optimize the workflow. The corridor design does have its limits and might be unable to be utilized if the kitchen is too small.
The corridor style kitchen design will minimize the use of countertops in a small kitchen. It also puts the water, electric and other services all together in a bunch. It will let you have access to the appliances all at once without having to walk to the opposite end of the room.
Designing a kitchen can be challenging: you will find pots to stow away, plates and utensils to put in convenient but tidy positions, and appliances to be arranged so that they make the kitchen look wealthy, but not cluttered. The problem is exacerbated by small floor spaces, which can be typical in high rise apartments, small condominium units, or compact homes.
