What Houzz contributors are saying:
Save… on quantity of units One of the best preparatory tasks you can undertake before you plan your project is to make an audit of all your kitchen goods. Donate or sell anything you don’t need or don’t use, and then plan your storage based on your new, edited collection. There’s no point paying for extra units to store items you no longer want, and fewer units will mean a lower spend. A good planning tip is to eschew all eye-level cupboards in favour of open shelves, plus one full-height double cupboard along with your standard base units.
2. Skip wall unitsLike the previous kitchen, this one is part of a studio too. Here, the owners have decided against wall units and have gone for a run of shelving instead to enhance the sense of space. The white units may be pared-back and minimal, but the subway tiles with black grouting give the room instant character.New ways to use beloved subway tiles
Prioritise perfect positioningIf your room necessitates a U-shaped layout, consider whether extra-slim cupboards or drawers will allow optimum positioning of your key appliances. Here, the narrow pantry pullout and drawers on either side of the oven mean that the coveted kitchen appliance ‘triangle’ can still be maintained.Kitchen planning beyond the basics
