Embarking on a fresh start in any stage of your life is a golden opportunity to reassess your living needs. Boston-based interior design firm Bunker Workshop demonstrates how good design makes the most of a 65-square-foot kitchen in an in-law flat.

The tiny kitchen is slotted into a corner of the small space.

Having spent much time in Italy, the clients had grown accustomed to living with drying racks above the sink and were prepared to forgo a dishwasher.

A cutting board inside a drawer provides extra counter space when required

When not in use, the table sits in front of the window at the same depth as the kitchen cabinets and serves as a desk.

A green glass backsplash adds color and reflection to an otherwise all-white kitchen area.

The desk/table is rolled out in preparation for a meal.
