Not everyone is blessed with a huge rooms in their homes, however some rooms really do benefit from giving the feeling of space. Especially if, because of their function, they need to have lots of things in them. A kitchen is definitely one of those rooms, so in this post I wanted to share with you how to make the most of a small kitchen. These tips were kindly provided by the kitchen experts, small and large from The Station Ashby.

- Multi Use Appliances
Who needs a separate oven, grill and microwave when you can purchase appliances that do all this and more in one compact space! Multi use appliances are the way forward when it comes to freeing up space in your kitchen. Another top tip is decanting things into pretty jars, particularly ones that you can stack on top of each other.
- Hidden Doors
Every nook, cranny and crevice can be filled with handy storage in small kitchens and what looks like a panel can be pulled out to reveal a long stretch of shelving or hooks that you can keep your tools of the trade in.
- Lots Of Light
Lots of light is one of the most important things for small kitchens. Light, bright and airy colour palettes, shiny, reflective metal and even spotlights can help give the illusion of more space. This small decorating trick can really make a difference!
- Super Shelving
Shelves are your friends when it comes to small kitchens! Place spices, jars or utensils high above workspaces on shelving to create the illusion of room in your kitchen.
- Don’t Cut Corners
Just like shelving, corners can be utilized for handy storage spaces. There are lots of places you can be corner shelving now, so don’t let that room go to waste, particularly if your kitchen is an odd shape.
