It can be hard to know where to start when looking at a blank canvas especially when you know you have to fit your kitchen and entertainment space into it. Even more so when that space is on the small side. Having a smaller area to work with doesn’t mean you have to skimp on the details, there are ways to work around this to include almost everything you need (but also want!)
Small spaces can make or break a kitchen design, thinking innovatively to make the most of the space will determine what you can do. Adding corner units and upper storage that is more ergonomic depends on the layout you have, whether confined to a corner or along a single wall. It is often said that a Galley-style kitchen works the best for a smaller space as it features two parallel walls with benches, cabinets and storage on either side. Allowing there to be no awkward corners to work with and giving you full access to the entire kitchen however, there are now great corner storage solutions that allow you to choose the layout you want. In kitchen layouts like L, G and U shaped and Island kitchens, it is possible to add a breakfast bar to incorporate a 'dining' area into a small space. It acts as a great place to entertain too, as people are able to converse with others whilst in the kitchen.
