Kitchen design for small spaces

Stockholm-based interior stylist Sasa Antic’s apartment covers an area of just 24 square meters, so maximization space is essential. He tells us how his ingenious kitchen design enables him to live comfortably in a home of this size.

I like rooms with walls. My flat originally had an open-plan layout, but I had a wall built to separate the kitchen and sleeping areas. It has shelving on one side for storage and a huge mirror on the other to create the illusion of space. Installing the mirror wasn’t an easy process: it took eight men to carry it up four flights of stairs and into my flat.

I wanted the kitchen to be simple, spacious and functional. That was the brief I gave to my friend Fredrik Moselius, who worked with me on the design. I’m not a fan of folding chairs or other compact-living solutions - I’d rather own fewer pieces but be selective. So I only buy glassware and china that I will use every day. Iittala is one of my favorite brands.

I always come back to simplicity. I like plain white crockery, basic cutlery, and design pieces such as my Alvar Aalto stools. My kitchen has a classic feel - I’ve used marble on the surfaces and the back wall for a clean-lined, graphic look.

I love the blue color scheme. I picked the shade because I’d seen it on a cashmere scarf that I bought in London; I went to a paint store and had the scarf scanned to identify its Pantone code, which helped me to choose the perfect hue.

I often do my sketches in the kitchen: sometimes I’ll put my computer on the marble surface and work standing up. Breakfast on a Saturday morning is one of my favorite kitchen rituals. I’ll spend hours reading the papers, eating toast and drinking fresh coffee.
