Why Bespoke Kitchen Design Is Perfect For the Small Kitchen

When you've only got a small kitchen you might feel as if it isn't worth investing in bespoke kitchen design. As it happens, it's actually more worthwhile than it would be for many people with bigger spaces. That is because the fitted kitchens which you can buy readymade aren't designed to be suitable for the smaller space. They're not really designed for any real kitchens, and therefore they can end up making the space look even smaller, costing you valuable floor space and not making the most out of the space you have.

Bespoke kitchen design is unique to every single kitchen. It means it'll be just right for you, and take in to account not only your design preferences but also the room itself and how it can be best used. This is ideal if you have a slightly unconventional shaped room (as you'd end up losing a lot of space with a premade design), or if you've just got a particularly little kitchen.

Think about it. It just takes some good planning to make sure everything is ship shaped. There's no need to go to great expense with bespoke kitchen design, and actually, with a more functional and better laid out room you'll feel as if you're getting far better value for money than you ever could have with an off the shelf kitchen.

Use space more effectively

Before you begin to think about the bespoke kitchen design itself you should have a serious clear out. We mean really, truly ruthless. What do you actually use, and what is just gathering dust? If there's things which you use but only on a very rare 'we have 20 guests' basis, is there anywhere else you could store those things? Tuck away your extra crockery and you'll have a lot more space, and more importantly, won't need as much cupboard space as you might have originally thought. The upside of this is that you'll be able to choose more shallow cupboards which intrude less into the space itself and will be much more usable (I can't be the only one who loses everything at the back of the cupboards, can I?)

Choose a rolling island

Or at the very least a really high quality kitchen table. This will give you more space to prepare food, and also somewhere to eat your creations. The benefit of a rolling island is that it can be moved out of the way, or used when you need more counter space or a bit of a breakfast bar. An island gives a particularly luxurious feel to the space, which means you'll be able to tuck it out of the way if you need a bit more room.

It's really easy to make a small room look great, as long as you speak to the right bespoke kitchen designer. They'll be able to offer you all the assistance you need and work alongside you to make sure your little room is given a whole new lease of life.
