Don’t let a small space discourage you, as even the most intimate of areas can make quite the first impression, and transform an area in the home.

Here are a few designers best kept secrets, and some tips on how to create the illusion of more space.

Keep colours light and bright

A neutral palette will give off the feel of a spacious and polished look.

Maximise light, by using gloss finishes on cabinetry and or benchtops to achieve a sense of depth.

The use of glass and mirrored splashbacks, will reflect surrounds and create the illusion of more space.

Keep cabinetry hardware to a minimum

Handles on every door can create clutter.  Consider handle-less cabinetry for clean lines.

Make every inch of space count

Select a sink that includes attachments; such as a chopping board, fitted colander or other accessories. This will eliminate them taking up valuable cupboard space.

Slide out chopping boards are a great example of maximising space, plus they create additional bench space when required.

Deep drawers are a much better option than cupboards, and ensure items you use regularly are more accessible.

Utilise the space you have, by having cabinetry built in and around other fixtures (eg rangehood or sink). Upper cabinetry meeting the ceiling will also maximise storage, and minimise dust on top of cupboards.

Drawers can also be incorporated into the kick board/toe space, which means you’re making the most of the areas you have available to you.

Built in dining

One size doesn’t fit all, so custom made furniture can fit the areas you have available to use.

Look for an option which can be tucked away when not needed, to provide you more space and room to use.
