I've heard about converting your closet into an office, even into a bathroom, but this is a first: a kitchen!
Okay, I fudged that. This kitchen was not converted from a closet, but clearly it could fit into one. (Although knowing my love of a late-night snack, a closet-kitchen might not be a bad idea...) The Kitchn featured this "micro-kitchen" that was created to fit the apartment owner's strict request that the kitchen have a very, very, very small footprint.
But that's not to say that the owner doesn't ever cook. In fact, he's quite the baker -- and check out the crazy-cakes oven he's got. The oven is mounted above the stove, and the bottom lowers down to allow one to put in whatever it is that they're baking. It looks like a spaceship lowering a gangplank; you could send your cupcakes up into the mothership for a little probing.
Despite the top-of-the-line appliances, I still think this kind of kitchen would be best for someone who'd prefer to make reservations for dinner. After all, your home should reflect you and your priorities. If cooking isn't one of them, minimize the space your kitchen eats up, and focus on whatever else suits your needs.
Just make sure you still have enough room to whip up some mashed potatoes in case you feel like making a reminder of your UFO experience...
