BIG IDEAS for small kitchens

Diminutive doesn’t need to mean drab – perk up your kitchen, however compact, with these great solutions

Although many of us covet a large, sociable kitchen, the reality is often very different, but fear not, as there is a wealth of ways to make even a small kitchen feel more spacious. For example, wall cabinets can encroach on a space and make it feel smaller, so consider removing a run of units and replacing them with open shelving. Make the most of your existing cupboard space by having a good clear out, then re-organise it with clever drawer dividers, cabinet organisers and stacking pans. Take a look at our selection of buys, which include slimline appliances, stylish cabinets and space-saving solutions.

About Your Home Magazine

Is it just me, or do you love the month of May too? Not only does it feel like summer is on the way, but we also get those cheeky bank holidays to enjoy. For many of us the longer, warmer days mean that it’s the perfect time to tackle those decorating jobs we’ve been thinking about. In this issue we’ve got plenty of expert advice to help you plan your next decorating project and redesign your rooms like a stylist (p.36). If you’re thinking about updating your bathroom, then we’ve got some great monochrome schemes to inspire you (p.48), plus three readers share their own bathroom transformations with us (p.24) and they’ve got plenty of great ideas for you to steal. If, like me, you have a tiny kitchen, you’ll love our clever suggestions and smart solutions to make the most of the space you have (p.54). Now that summer is on the horizon, our thoughts turn to spending more time outdoors. On page 106 we discuss how to turn your alfresco space into an extension of your home. From balconies to terraces, patios to decks, we’ve got ideas for every space, no matter how big or small. If you’re a fan of street food, check out our delicious recipes on page 100 which will show you how to recreate all your favourite dishes at home. The Bajan fish cakes are really delish! Finally, to help you with your bank holiday projects we’ve put together a special free magazine to accompany this issue, full of quick and easy ideas to revamp your home in just a few hours. Happy decorating!
