Small kitchens with limited space or with sloping ceilings may not fit the traditional cooking of several wall-mounted cabinets and a row of cabinets beneath the counter. However, having a small kitchen does not stop you have optimal storage options. Rather, you have several options to choose one or more that suit your kitchen for optimum storage of your limited space.

Standard Kitchen Cabinets

The smaller kitchens can only provide enough space for you to have two or three standard cabinets on the floor under your desk. The standard kitchen cabinets are commonly 34 1/2 inches (86 cm) high and 24 inches (61 cm) deep. The overall width varies, as some have a single door and others have double doors. If you have a desk with ample space below, install a few basic kitchen cabinets with shelves for storage.

Upper cabinets

The top cabinets are the same size base cabinets, but are mounted on the wall to create more space on the floor. The upper cabinets are common in kitchens and are often hung on a kitchen space. These types of cabinets are 24 inches (61 cm) deep and often provide two or three shelves for storage. One or two of these cabinets can provide shelves for plates, cups, bowls, pots and pans.

Corner Cabinets

If you have very little space under your desk and do not have wall space due to a sloping ceiling, invest in a unit that goes in the corner, along a wall. Corner cabinets do not occupy much space on the wall or floor, as they use the space in the corner. This type of shelving cabinets provide options that may or may not be covered by a door. The most modern corner units can use glass doors to conceal partially the content.

Elongated Cabinets

The small upper cabinets are standard size cabinets mounted on the wall. However, if you do not have much wall space in terms of height, use smaller cabinets that are about 28 inches (71 cm) deep and just 15 inches (38 cm) tall. Instead of laying them on top of the other, creating an elongated cabinets that extend over your counter, which gives the length of your small kitchen storage and presents options.

I know your pain. But do you know the history..

Of your Victorian-style kitchen?
Like Victorian split-bathrooms, many Victorian kitchens were split: sink, cabinets & storage in a tiny room (e.g., 6'x10'), then a larger room for stove and eating (and, maybe, water heater).
We have similar kitchens: 5 doors & 2 windows: NO place to install wall or floor cabinets (desparately needed!). (Our 6'x10' rooms were long-ago converted to 2nd bathrooms or hallways.)
Islands may work, especially if units are ground- OR top-level AND you have easy access from below or above. And, in our case, there are 3'x3'x9' raceways with chimneys that ain't used any more

Rental: 700 Laguna @Grove (3 studios)

I had a look at the apartments in 700 Laguna today and can only shake my head in sad disgust.
These are very small units -- you'd be lucky to get your queen/king bed and entertainment center in the main room. There is a bit of space for a dresser near the closet door and desk/computer would go in the kitchen. The bathrooms are so small that you risk tripping over the toilet getting out of the shower (no linen storage space).
Let's not forget to mention that about half of the windows are permanently closed (according to the building manager, by order of the city).
PLUS, these apartments are across from a large low-income housing project
