This tiny, perfect Sicilian kitchen is proof that you don't need a huge floor plan to create a beautiful, one-of-a-kind kitchen. Click below for other views of this lovely little space, and five details you can steal for your own kitchen.

1. Waterfall edge countertops.
Marble countertops are gorgeous, and this kitchen takes them one step further by incorporating a marble backsplash, and a waterfall edge detail, where the countertops wrap the edge of the cabinets. This makes the marble visible from all sides of the kitchen, and gives the whole space a beautiful cohesiveness.

2. Creative shelving.
There are no upper cabinets to be seen in this kitchen — but the designers have squeezed in a little bit of shelving to ensure that everything has a place. It's practical but still preserves the kitchen's open, modern feel.

3. A single shelf for a minimal kitchen look (with maximum storage).
A single shelf (in lieu of upper cabinets or multiple shelves) is a look we're starting to see in more and more kitchens. It has its advantages: there are plenty of spaces to store smaller things you use often, and the kitchen maintains an open, airy look. A pot rail below the shelf provides additional space for oft-used utensils.

4. White + warm woods.
White is the perfect choice to make a small kitchen look larger: warm woods (in the form of a cutting board and vintage drawers) balance out all the brightness with just a touch of warmth. It's a combination that works surprisingly well in a huge variety of kitchens.

5. An integral sink.
Is this not the most beautiful sink you've ever seen? If you spend a lot of time washing dishes (and what person that's serious about cooking doesn't?), consider asking your countertop fabricator about making a sink from the same material, so your sink can be as beautiful as the rest of your kitchen.
