Find the optimum way to make the most from your space
Go for unfussy cupboards, keep wall units to a minimum (try open shelves) and use integrated appliances. Don’t place the oven and sink next to or directly opposite each other, so two people can work at the same time.
l-shape or G-shape KITCHEN
Fit wall units to just one side to stop the space feeling crowded and if the window is over the sink, use downlighters and under-cabinet spots to keep the room light. if there’s no space for a table, then try a breakfast bar at the end of the run.
Make the most of corners with spacesaving fittings, such as carousels or Le Mans units. keep traffic to a minimum in the heart of the kitchen by having your fridge at the entrance to ensure it’s easy to get to without disturbing the cook.
Leave lots of space around your island, ideally one metre, to open cupboards or drop-down doors on dishwashers and ovens. Pop a sink or hob on the unit to create a triangle and include plenty of deep drawers in it to store pots and pans.
Zone your space into distinct areas for food prep, cooking, dining and relaxing. install quiet appliances so conversation isn’t drowned out but make sure you have a powerful extractor so that cooking smells don’t linger.
