Space-saving ideas for your kitchen

Space-saving ideas for your kitchen

As the central social hub of your home, it’s easy to see how your kitchen can quickly become a magnet for clutter and mess, making it look and feel untidy and unloved.

But there are plenty of ways that you can maximise space by incorporating a whole host of clever space saving ideas when re-design of your kitchen.

Whether you have a small kitchen and you’re looking to optimise floor space, or you are simply trying to make the most of your available storage space, we’ve complied a list of some of our top tips on how you can save space in style!

Integrated appliances

Opting to incorporate integrated kitchen appliances into the design of your kitchen will not only allow you to save space, it will also enhance the entire look and feel of your room.

After all, when you have a brand new, super stylish kitchen, the addition of a chunky off white refrigerator, washing machine, or dishwasher in clear view is never going to do you any favours in the style stakes, right?

Dining space

As a space where family and friends unite to indulge, socialise, and cook together, it’s important that your kitchen is both functional and comfortable.

With more and more people opting to embrace open plan living, it’s not unusual for many people to integrate a dining area into their kitchen.

And there is a number of ways you can do this without imposing on the look and feel of your kitchen. From a kitchen island that doubles up as a functional breakfast bar to corner seating areas, which make the most of unused space, there’s lots of ways that you can make the most of the space you have available.


When it comes to creating a spacious and clutter free space, there are a whole host of innovative and effective storage solutions that will instantly allow you to free up space in your kitchen.

With all those pots, pans, and other kitchen utensils to conceal, a lot of people struggle when it comes to finding a space for everything.

But, if cupboard space is an issue, have you ever considered making the most of your wall space? Installing a bar between your cupboards or from your ceiling, will allow you to hang all of your pots, saucepans and utensils! Of course, if you love to cook, it will also provide you with easy access to all of the equipment you need to whip up your favourite dishes!

Create the illusion of space

There’s nothing worse than a kitchen that feels imposing and claustrophobic, especially as it’s the one space in your home where you spend the majority of your time.

But did you know that your choice of wall colours, units and cabinets could have a huge impact on the look and feel of your kitchen? With this in mind, when you are designing your kitchen you should always opt for light colours rather than oppressive colour ways! This will instantly make your kitchen feel bigger!

Another great way to create the illusion of space is to add a mirror and even remove your doors – this will instantly create a sense of free movement.
