Make good use of a corner space that is rarely used with a country-style wall-mounted cabinet.
Keep a bench hidden away under your table and pull it out when you have guests. This one has a removable lid – ideal for storing cleaning products or cookery books.

Sectioning-off the kitchen area in a compact property doesn’t have to make the space smaller. Keep part of the kitchen open and use the same colours and finishes throughout in order to seamlessly join the two rooms and enhance the feeling of space.
Good lighting will enhance space and can be added under wall cabinets and at plinth level to create depth. Here, backlighting brightens a shelving unit.

An island unit might be out of the question, but a butcher’s block or portable kitchen trolley will provide extra prep space and can be moved out of the way when not required. Here, a 60cm-wide reclaimed sideboard provides a link between cooker and sink, plus a long length of workspace.
Store away everyday essentials or showcase your favourite pieces in this floor-to-ceiling shelving unit. Add a touch of colour to the scheme with zesty lemon wallpaper and matching accessories.
