They provide plenty of opportunities for the effective use of a small space. When choosing the furniture the preference should be give to that that is uses special fittings. Set with “smart” storage is an excellent choice for a small kitchen. They allow you to maximize the use of the angular space of kitchen cabinets.

The angular plans are well suited for small square-shaped kitchens. In some cases the kitchen furniture can be arranged in a U-shaped form. But such planning is appropriate only in the case if you will only cook in the kitchen and the dining area will combine with the living room.
