How to maximise your kitchen space

If you want to be able to maximise your kitchen space, going the bespoke route will open endless possibilities.

Even if you don’t have the biggest of spaces you can still design the most beautiful of kitchens with all the storage and sunlight you need.

Pantries and Larders

Pantry cupboards and larders are becoming increasingly popular in modern designs and lots of our customers have added this storage system to their styles.  They not only look the part, but also great for hiding away any unnecessary clutter and is great for storing electrical items such as coffee machines and toasters.

Traditionally, pantries were downstairs in large Victorian houses to store cooking essentials, fine silverware and valuable ingredients. Today’s modern pantries are used to store dry goods and cans and even vegetables.

Shelves, spice racks and integrated drawers are now being added making them perfect to store everything.

You can organise your kitchen pantry or larder to suit you and your family’s needs and have everything in one place for that one easy reach. Whether it be free standing or integrated, both are designed to suit your needs.




Natural light plays a key part in maximising space in a kitchen. You want to make the kitchen feel open and as spacious as you can.  This also allows you use a darker colour in your kitchen.

Skylights are also a great addition to add light in and create an airy room. It is also essential to keep windows free from wall cupboards so that natural sunlight is not blocked out.

Adding shelving to a kitchen can help break up a long run of cabinets and prevents it from looking too built up.



Colour Scheme

Choosing a light colour for your kitchen will create an illusion of more space. Light will then bounce from each of the cabinets to open up the room. You may want to add colour to your kitchen, so a two-tone design is also a great idea to incorporate a different colour scheme and allow dark and light colours to work together.

In the below kitchen, we used two tones to bounce the light.
