Dos & Don’ts for Smaller Spaces


Make the most out of your kitchen space and create a beautiful compact kitchen.

Do prioritise appliances.

If you’re not one for cooking and prefer pre-prepared dishes, then you may require a bigger fridge space and could sacrifice some room elsewhere. Alternatively, integrated appliances are a great solution for saving space while creating a uniform look to your compact kitchen.



Don’t create clutter.

If you don’t have the space to accommodate a large pantry, then a pull-out organiser is the perfect solution – allowing you to keep your kitchen condiments both organised and accessible. For drawer storage, cutlery inserts are your answer. Available in a vast array of colours and sizes, this simple invention makes life in the kitchen a lot easier.


Do keep your colour scheme simple.

Neutral colours naturally reflect the light, making a significant impact on the impression of the room size.



Don’t skimp on lighting.

From atmospheric feature lighting to intergraded spotlights, there’s a vast array of choice to add style and elegance to your kitchen. Remember to let the natural light in too by keeping window space sleek and simple. The more light, the bigger your space will feel.



Do make a statement.

A strong patterned floor or geometric style splashback is a great way to make your room feel bigger and add that wow factor to your kitchen. However, if this idea doesn’t suit your style, why not accessorise with bright, bold accents? Trendy coloured toasters and retro-inspired radios are rising popular trends that offer cute and characterful touches to your kitchen space.



Don’t waste space.

For example, you can turn those awkward corners of your kitchen into smart storage. Rotating magic corner storage can bring the contents of your cupboards to you, while keeping your oversized platter plates and pots and pans neatly stored away.

Alternatively, if cabinet and drawer space are in short supply, wall storage is the perfect alternative. Use this space to add a personal touch to your kitchen by showing off your favourite crockery to family and friends.
