I had some space above my cabinets (in hindsight I should have gone for taller cabinets) below the windows at the top of the wall. Not wanting to lose the space I bought some wooden crates from hobbycraft and stashed a few less-used bits (like cake tins) up there. Weirdly it's ended up being the most commented on and appreciated feature in the kitchen! So, I would say, get a friend or a neighbour in to say what they would like in their kitchen, you may get some ideas.

We initially wanted to knock down the wall between the kitchen and breakfast room, but it turned out to be a supporting wall and we couldn't afford it. Extension is impossible because the main floor is first storey. As for renovating with a view to second-guessing what an unknown potential buyer might want, the critical things are professional plumbing and wiring - the rest is relatively easy to change.

Very good ideas to increase the value of your home, mirrored plinths and splash backs expand the space visually. Even using a good quality paint can add value to your kitchen.
