Every time I have my mother in law over for dinner she marvels at how much I can do in my "tiny kitchen." The truth is I've lived in New York City my entire adult life and I've never even realized that my kitchen was tiny.  A small space does pose a bit more of a challenge, but it's not impossible so long as you're strategic.
