29 Charm aplenty
Despair not, for a long narrow room can fit all your cookery essentials, be affordable and have charm in abundance. It’s all about choices. Flat-pack or custom white units, a mix of open and shut storage, a slim island, an antiquelook mirror splashback above the cooker and a determination to stick to a classic blue and white scheme will do it every time. Mix and match salvaged and inexpensive store-bought stools (upgraded with paint, fabric or faux leather) for your brekkie bar.
