Photo of a small modern l-shaped eat-in kitchen in Perth with a drop-in sink, flat-panel cabinets, white cabinets, laminate benchtops, white splashback, stainless steel appliances, linoleum floors and with island.
A common problem in tiny kitchens is the lack of benchtop space for preparing food, with the usual suspects like kettles, toasters and utensil pots eating up most of the precious space before you’ve even started chopping.
Solution: An island unit with cupboards or open shelving below will not only become storage central, it will also double your bench space. Consider trading in your low kitchen table for a more practical waist-height island, and you’ll find it more functional for daily chores. - naomi_greenham
