Small Kitchens


The average kitchen in the UK is of a modest size. Glossy magazines and catalogues feature kitchens that are large and this makes smaller ones seem inadequate. However, good kitchen designers relish the challenge of small kitchens and take pride in creating space while incorporating generous storage facilities and all the appliances you want.


Space-Saving, Fitted Kitchen Cabinets Quality kitchen manufacturers make a huge range of cabinet sizes to customer order so there is no need to waste precious inches with fi ller panels. Ingenious


internal fi ttings give easy access within cabinets and again ensure that every inch of space is available for use. Wall cabinets can be extended to reach


the ceiling to accommodate rarely used items and reduce dust traps. There are even special cupboards


and hardware for cutlery, spices and implements between the fl oor and wall cabinets. The wasted space at plinth level can be fi tted with drawers or even heaters.


Slim-Line Kitchen Appliances Special slimline appliances offer modern facilities in a reduced space. Cooling and laundry appliances can be stacked and you may even select a double oven that fi ts under the worktop. A two ring hob will

allow extra worktop surface and glazed wall cabinets will give the impression of more space. Appliance brands also offer fantastic


built in steam ovens, coffee machines and microwaves that will leave your worktop clutter-free. Some national kitchen manufacturers are even installing fl at- screen TVs within wall units to offer you a hi-tech kitchen in a small space!


Colour Schemes for Small Kitchens Choose light colours such as white, cream, pastels, pine or limed wood effects; or go for high gloss units to refl ect the light. Kitchen worktops have a strong visual impact and they too should be light in colour, giving a mild contrast to your choice of cabinet. You can then go for stronger contrasts with your choice of tile colour and shape. Together all theses suggestions will


maximise space and minimise clutter, proving that even the smallest kitchen can be beautiful as well as functional.
