Do it! Space-sav­ing So­lu­tions

Style at Home (UK) - - Kitchen Makeover -

1 Try to al­low some space for shelv­ing in an is­land for stor­ing recipe books and cook­ware. A built-in wine rack is an­other great idea – Betsy adapted hers to fit larger bot­tles of drinks.

2 If you’re plan­ning an ex­ten­sion and wall space is likely to be lim­ited, con­sider in­stalling sky­lights. Th­ese are also a good idea if your ex­ten­sion will look out onto a dark space at the side of the house.

3 Build­ing ap­pli­ances into the cab­i­netry cre­ates a seam­less look and elim­i­nates wasted space above or be­low. Fit them at eye level for easy ac­cess when tak­ing things in and out of the oven.

4 If you don’t have enough room for a dining ta­ble, think about go­ing for a big­ger is­land so you can use part of it as a breakfast bar.
