When it’s time to buy a new kitchen, it’s the ideal opportunity to re-evaluate your needs and consider the most effective way to get the most from your space.
A well-planned combination of cabinet space, open shelving and drawer units can make all the difference to the available storage space – especially in compact kitchen areas. For a streamlined design, here are the top tips to consider:
1.Try a asymmetrical look and team together wall-mounted cabinets and open shelves to give a sense of spaciousness. Use the shelves to display dishes, cookbooks and beautiful accessories.
2. Mid-height wall units are are a great idea in a room with a low ceiling as they help to give the illusion of height.
3. If your space allows it, increase the amount of storage with an island unit – not only will you have another handy work surface, it can double up as a breakfast bar.
4. Select units with different drawer depths, using the shallowest for cutlery or linens, mid-depth for dishes, and the deepest for bulky pots and pans.
5. Consider handle-less gloss cabinet fronts for a modern and sleek look.
