Whist big, beautiful kitchens are what dreams are made of for a lot of us? There's a lot to be said for a small compact, but fully functional kitchen. Everything is to hand & do we just spread out when we have more space?

If Rachel Khoo the talented cook can run a bijou restaurant from her tiny Paris apartment with an equally tiny kitchen, then size really doesn't matter!

Small kitchens, if designed well, can be just as lovely as big ones. Try opting for reflective surfaces to make them seem bigger and extra depth cabinets for more storage. We love long drawers too as they are more space efficient than doors. Take a look at this compact kitchen in Edinburgh that we did.

Totally agree with above comment - we use long drawers on full-extension runners rather than cupboards where space is an issue. In addition to creating more storage they give a 'calm' feel to the space.
