Keep it discreet and de-cluttered

By storing your kitchen appliances like kettles, coffee machines and toasters in a discreet breakfast cupboard, you can keep your kitchen counters clutter-free and your whole kitchen spacious overall. This is a clever trick for making use of unused corners, making sure that none of your kitchen plugs and wires gets all tangled up and messy for all to see. 

There’s no better way to improve this than by opting for a sleek handleless kitchen door. It’s covert, subtle, yet very modern. For a clean and minimal finish, the Luc handleless match cashmere door is our top recommendation. The light tone effortlessly reflects natural light around the interior space and keeps your kitchen looking clean and classy throughout the day.

Matching wall colours with painted kitchen doors

Painting your cupboards with the same colours as your current wall design will make your small kitchen space look more spacious and create a seamless harmony.

Find a new home for your washing machine

Cambridge oak real wood kitchen cabinet doors

We all know that the kitchen is the most common area to store your washing machine, whether it’s right next to the sink cupboard or under the kitchen counter by the fridge. It’s a minor nit-pick, but it can mess with the kitchen’s general aesthetic, and some may even find it as an eyesore, especially when space is scarce in your kitchen.

So it’s worth treating yourself and investing in a traditional woodgrain cabinet door. It’s a very subtle upgrade to your small kitchen ideas, but the results can make your kitchen feel new and rejuvenated. Installing the Cambridge oak real wood cabinet door will add a natural design and character to the space whilst keeping your washing machine hidden in plain sight. Our wooden cabinet range is suited for modern and traditional designs, offering plenty of colour alternatives to suit your taste.
