A well-placed chopping board can free up valuable counter space on which you can chop, cook or prep. Keep a board over the sink or hob for easy reach, or add an extension to a wall cabinet with a shelf to hold utensils or containers. Boost storage in drawers with dividers for utensils, pans and plates, or install a small rail in the corner of a cabinet to hang spatulas and other frequently used utensils. A simple kitchen hack that makes a big difference, this is an inexpensive and effective way to make your kitchen work harder for you.
Often overlooked corners can be a real boon in smaller kitchens, whether they’re converted to an eating nook with circular seating and a bench; a cookery bookshelf; a tall, bespoke-made cupboard for brooms and mops; or a pull-out corner unit for pots and pans. Precision planning is key when it comes to making the most of this type of unused space, so think about what your needs are and plan accordingly.

Crammed pantry shelves are a common cause of clutter. To reduce them, organise food items into glass jars or canisters (use clear ones for easier visibility) that are more attractive to look at than plastic bags, and add a labeller to help you identify contents. A tilt-down drawer at the sink is a great place to store cleaning products, so you can see what’s there and avoid having them spill out onto shelves.
