The kitchen certainly becomes the focal point of this 938-square-foot cottage that was designed for both empty nesters and first-time buyers. An efficient and functional layout proves critical for a smaller home, with special attention to traffic flow and natural light. Quality materials and finishes are essential, especially for the empty nester. Thoughtful details such as pull-out shelves along with high-quality appliances and fixtures are pleasant surprises in such a small home.

A. Built-in dining table allows seating for four in a 28-square-foot space

B. Pantry features efficient pull-out shelves

C. Island offer open view toward the family room and flat-screen TV and provides three to four additional seating spaces

D. Cabinets with pull-out shelves

E. Kitchen opens to the family room and features a double window for

natural light. Traffic flow from the side door toward the family room provides logical traffic pattern.
