HOW TO: Maximise space in your kitchen

If you have a small kitchen, or just a lot of stuff, you’ll need to make the most of the space you have at hand. Thankfully, there are many ways to squeeze that extra bit of space out of a kitchen installation and ensure that you can hoard to your heart’s content.

Tall Wall Units

Something that is often overlooked is the wall space in your kitchen. If you have a large window or pipework on the wall, you may think you’re out luck with this. This is not the case though, as wall units come in a range of heights. If you’re used to your bog-standard 720mm units, then upgrading to a 900mm can open up a ton of new space in the room. That extra 180mm can hold another set of plates, glasses, bowls, mugs, pots, jars, or tins. They are available in all the usual widths, so they should slot right into your kitchen and provide you with extra room without any hassle. Browse our range here

Storage Baskets and Pull-outs

Another popular way to take advantage of unused space is through an integrated pull-out unit. These have really taken off in the last decade as a way to take the stress out of storing your kitchen essentials. Anyone who has a corner unit knows the struggle of having to kneel down and reach to the corner of the unit. This is where the pull-outs come in, as they can act as a sliding shelf that pulls the items out of the corner when you open the door. Say goodbye to dirty knees and look at these

We also offer options for small cupboards, door mounted spice racks and integrated bin options which can all be amazing for organising the clutter in your kitchen.

Integrated Appliance Units

When you have a tiny kitchen, it can sometimes feel like half the space in there is taken up by the essential appliances leaving no room to store everything else. Luckily we have the solution! Integrated appliances. The great thing about opting for an integrated solution is they are generally smaller in form factor and can then be worked into a tall appliance unit. Instead of having a to use up a whole section of your kitchen for the oven and microwave, you can instead fit them both in the same tall unit and still have space above and below. Instead of two under counter spots being used by a bulky washing machine and tumble-dryer, you can stack them inside a single unit! While we understand this is not the cheapest of solutions (appliances can be costly), it is one of the best ways to save space and open up new avenues for you to save space and make your kitchen more attractive.
