Utilising Vertical Space

When space is limited, it’s essential to use every cm of it wisely. One way to do this is by utilising vertical space. You can do this by installing cabinets and shelves that go right up to the ceiling – you’d be surprised at how much space gets wasted in a lot of kitchens! Hanging storage can also be an excellent solution, giving you easy access to pots, pans, and utensils.

Multi-functional Furniture

In a small kitchen, every piece of furniture must be functional and when it serves multiple purposes, it is even more of a bonus. A kitchen island with storage underneath is an excellent addition to any small kitchen, providing both additional storage and extra workspace. 

Choosing Appliances Wisely

When it comes to appliances, bigger isn’t always better, especially in a small kitchen. Opt for smaller appliances that will fit comfortably in your kitchen without overwhelming the space. 

Choose Light Colours to Make the Space Feel Larger

Choosing light colours can make a small kitchen feel more spacious. White, cream, and light grey are great colour choices for small kitchens. A great tip to create a space that feels more open is to paint the wall units and tall units in a lighter shade, or for maximum effect, the same colour as the walls. For galley or dark kitchens using reflective surfaces for a splashback (like glass) will help give more of a feeling of space too.

Clever Storage Solutions Bespoke to you

Custom-built drawers and cabinets which are created with you and your family at the heart of the design will make a huge difference to how much storage you have. From whether you need deeper shelves for appliances or serving bowls, to how many drawers you require for cutlery and baking accessories, the choice will be yours. In addition, peg boards and pull-out racks can maximise on accessibility too, giving everything a place.
