Smal Kitchen Calls For Storage Overhaul

When we see tv shows about house refurbs or in fact the ones where folk want to change houses, the major consideration seems always to hinge on how big the kitchen is. Not everyone is blessed with a large sociable space to form an eye catching and inviting kitchen-diner.  Many in fact do not have the room for a massive kitchen island and range style cooker.  Very many of us have to contend with a much smaller space.  However with clever planning, there is a wealth of ideas to make this space more effective.  Storage is the most important element in a small kitchen.  Corner units that offer pull out racking systems that then cantilever themselves back round the corner are essential.    Thinking of where to store kitchen equipment and crockery helps.  In a wall mounted cabinet, store the most used items on the more easily reached lower shelf and put the special occasion pieces on the top shelf.   Put  saucepans in the cabinet under a wall mounted oven and hand a rack for the lids inside the utility cupboard.
