How to make the most of a small kitchen space

Your kitchen may not be the biggest room in your home, but it needs to work the hardest. Often the bustling heart of the home, utilising every inch of your space, no matter how small, can make a huge difference. If you want to revamp your existing kitchen and need some pointers, we’re here to help. Here are our top tips on making the most of your space.

Make more room

One of the easiest ways to get more space is to extend your kitchen. Perhaps you have an adjoining dining room or an underused under stair space. These could be opened up to create a combined kitchen and dining area. Your kitchen is often the heart of the home and bringing food preparation and dining into one space helps to maximise storage and flexibility. Don’t forget to ask for help and advice from us at Williams Plumbing and Heating if you need to relocate pipes or radiators.

Keep it practical

Not everyone has space to extend, but this shouldn’t prevent you from designing a practical kitchen space. There are lots of solutions which can help provide extra preparation space such as folding tables, movable islands and over the sink chopping boards. Could you install kick cupboards underneath your existing units? Or maybe floor to ceiling storage around your fridge freezer could work? Choose light, reflective surfaces for worktops and cupboard doors to make the room feel bigger.

Small is beautiful

The largest items in your kitchen are often appliances. Consider relocating these to free up some space. Your washing machine or freezer could be moved into an under stairs cupboard or garage. Also, think about how you use your kitchen – what do you need to hand every day and what could you manage without? You may need to declutter and pare down your pan collection, but these small changes will make a big difference.
