With this guide, you’ll have the kitchen you’ve always dreamed of.
You’ll no doubt have cabinets in your kitchen, but how many you have and the size of them is up to you. You may want to have all of your storage hidden away or you may want it to be visible. Storage is there to help you make the most of the space in your kitchen, if you’ve got a small kitchen then having all utensils hidden away will make it seem more spacious, whereas if you have a large kitchen, having open storage will create a homely effect and will prevent the room from feeling empty. There are different types of kitchen storage and you should evaluate these before you start the renovation work. Kitchen storage can include: Cabinets, kitchen islands, open shelves, pull out units, corner storage, racks, hooks and freestanding storage.
