a very very small kitchen

Our house was built in 1932, and our Kitchen layout is a square box, 9'x12', with 3 doorways, and 1 window. MY :confused: :confused: total counter space is 5' we have little storage and due to the way the house was built not many options for remodeling. Any Suggestions?

Closing off a door or two may be an option. You might want to take a trip to and RV dealer one day and look at the kitchens in an RV. It may give you some good ideas.

Re: a very very small kitchen

how are your doorways layed out? our kitchen is the same size, also with three doorways and one window. We replaced the exterior door with a dutch door so that we could open the top to let in fresh air without having to open the whole door. The top opens flat against the wall above the countertop but the bottom would hit the counter at about 140 degrees so it was a great option for us. Another thing that we did was to install a shorter upper cabinet so that we could hang a space saver microwave without losing any counter space.

Would love to see some pictures of your kitchen, maybe some ideas would come from that.
