It can sometimes be difficult to think about a new kitchen design if you’re unsure of the best layout for your space.

This month we’ll be sharing some expert advice with you on the three main kitchen layouts. Hopefully our tips will help you out a little with any design plans…

First up are galley kitchen layouts. Perfect for small spaces as the placing of units against the walls maximises a narrow space and keeps appliances close together without appearing too busy.

Small appliances will make the room feel bigger – a large farmhouse sink won’t work in kitchens short on space – you’ll need things on a smaller scale to make the space appear as large as possible.

In small kitchens, too many wall units can make the kitchen feel cluttered as this is where the eye is drawn first. Instead, choose tall wall units that provide plenty of space without taking up too much room.

The colours and materials used in a galley kitchen can make a huge difference to how spacious it feels. For example, using reflective surfaces is a great way to create the illusion of more space. Light colours work in a similar way. Cream, white and pastels will all bounce light around the room to make it look larger.
