Work the triangleSharing a fridge with fellow bakers isn’t generally an issue in your own kitchen, but do consider its placement in the room. Here, the kitchen designer’s triangle is observed to make the layout efficient – that’s sink, hob and fridge at each of the three points of the shape and easy passage along the straight sides between them. A single line kitchen makes a triangle impossible, of course, but there’s a solution: a straight line of the three points will function just fine if you leave worksurface space between the areas.Read expert tips on getting the best from your single wall kitchen
Go round a cornerIf your kitchen is located in an open-plan room with a partition wall, get your place to perch by making use of the space like they’ve done here. One run of units continues beyond the wall and the worktop turns the corner to form a ledge for bar-stools to sit neatly under. It’s a really efficient way to use an awkward, unused area.This idea can be adapted for a room with structural pillars, too.
Camouflage it with colour-matchingThere is nothing hidden about the freestanding fridge-freezer in this image, but the kitchen designer has expertly matched the colour and handles of the cabinets with the fridge-freezer for a uniform look. As a result, the scheme flows neatly with no jarring contrasts.There are plenty of interesting colours and shades for fridges available now, so if you are shopping for a new freestanding design, why not look for one that will match your existing cupboard doors?
