When designing small, you can still think big to maximise tighter areas and get the most out of your kitchen space!

Do you want to make your kitchen work for you, inside and out? When designing small, you can still think big to maximise tighter areas and get the most out of your kitchen space!  Here are a few short and sweet tips from this small wonder of a kitchen…

All access storage

It’s often what’s on the inside that counts, so incorporating internal storage is a savvy way to turn the organisation up a notch!  From corner rotating baskets through to pantry pullout baskets and cutlery inserts for drawers, you can give everything its own place while making those hard to reach everyday items completely accessible. Keep your benchtops (and stress levels) clutter free – your benchtop space is important real estate in your kitchen, especially in a smaller one, so you don’t want it to go to waste!

Two in one

Using a modular or cut to measure benchtop as a table extension for a dining or study nook is a great way to maximise your space, and create zones and layers in your kitchen. And, what’s better, mixing timber-look surfaces (such as our premium laminate cashew nut benchtop) into a design also adds texture, warmth and flair.  It’s a win win!   

Keep it light

When it comes to your colour scheme, keeping it light and bright is a good way to make a space feel bigger and more open.  You can create a soft colour pallet with dusty grey white pepper doors and panels, while still bringing in visual interest thanks to marble and stone-look benchtops. Sweet and simple.
