Anyone who's looking to 'right-size' [not my idea of a graceful turn of phrase, but it is descriptive] could pick up a few design pointers from this lovely little kitchen. Number One: Do not be cowed by existing conditions as far as your storage needs are concerned. Cabinets running up to the ceiling are to be encouraged. Number Two: Opting for small-sized appliances doesn't mean sacrificing amenities. This set up has it all, from coffee machine to steam oven. Number Three: Resist the temptation to have everything you want. The faucet here looks like it is too large for the sink, with excessive over-spraying a distinct possibility. jacktrench.co.uk
