So your dishwasher has to sit under your worktops, right? Not necessarily. Consider raising it a bit higher, and you’ll find loading and unloading it so much easier. The height of your oven is also crucial. Site it too low or too high and you might struggle to retrieve heavy casserole dishes, or pull out a tray of meat for basting.
White appliances are still the classic favorite, followed by black. Stainless steel, with its professional look, continues to grow in popularity. If you covet a simple Shaker-style space or a luxurious Italian villa setting, however, you may want to hide the fridge and dishwasher out of sight. To meet this need, savvy cabinet manufacturers offer coordinated cabinet fronts that adhere easily and provide a custom-designed look.
It’s always tempting to add one more piece of furniture, but it’s also essential that two people can work in the kitchen at the same time without having to wrestle. Walkways should be at least a meter wide. Just as with counter space, you will always end up needing more cupboards, shelving, and drawers than you thought you would. Accomplishing this is usually the most difficult thing about assembling a workable small kitchen, but it is indeed possible with a little ingenuity.
