How To Maximise Your Kitchen Space
Here at BenchmarK Kitchens & Interiors, we understand the kitchen is the heart of the home. We’re passionate about making sure you make the most of your space to suit your needs; from preparing meals, relaxing, dining and even doing homework – we’re confident we can create the right design to suit your needs and optimise your kitchen space.
If your kitchen is on the smaller side, we have a range of clever design ideas to ensure the functionality of your kitchen whilst still making the most of your kitchen space:
Freestanding Pantry Cupboards
Not only are freestanding pantry cupboards a gorgeous design feature, they can store a range of products from appliances and cutlery, crockery, glassware to dried and canned goods.
Open shelving is a chic way to provide extra storage and create a gorgeous display area in your kitchen. You can use a range of materials to create an interesting focal point.
A Kitchen Island/ Breakfast Bar
Kitchen islands are a great multi-functional addition to any kitchen. It provides extra lower cabinet space as well as end of unit storage such as spice racks, an additional food preparation area and dining area with the addition of a breakfast bar.
Narrow gaps in your kitchen can provide a surprising amount of storage space and functionality. Pull-out cupboards can be filled with a range of accessories from spice racks, storage baskets and towel racks.
Interior Cabinet Organisers
Using organisers in your draws and cabinets is important for decluttering and making the most of your unit space.
Clever Use of Colour
Using a mixture of light and dark shades can create an optical illusion or create an interesting focal point in your kitchen and help to make your space look bigger.
A fail-safe trick to make any room look bigger, adding a mirrored splashback not only increases the feel of the room but it is a great feature to bounce light around your kitchen. There are some beautiful options available such as antique glass splashbacks and coloured-mirror splashbacks.
