Straighten the kitchen
Kitchens love a straight wall, so if your flat’s wide enough, run the units in a single line along one side of the room. A width of 3.6m, for example, will house a tall fridge and a decent run of worktop.
Place the dining table parallel to the units to create a pleasing double-act, with the table acting as a buffer between the kitchen and the living space. The table will perform the same function as an island, providing an extra surface for preparing food.
