Narrow and Functional

It's rare that narrow and functional come together in one sentence! In this case, I've found a few narrow but functional spaces to share with you.

Narrow kitchens can still be "open". Make use of all the wall space you have and create as much functionality by keeping the walkway empty.

There is nothing wrong with narrow spaces. It is about on how you will make it functional. layout and choice of furniture will give you good space to work around. That is right, less is more! If you have too many things to store, find ways to organize with furniture with double purposes, you can have an ottoman and it can be a storage as well. Narrow and functional spaces are not really hard to achieve.
