One wall design

If you have to live with a kitchen that is not blessed with plenty of space, a one wall design might well be the perfect solution for you.

Having the majority of your kitchen appliances such as cookers, fridges and sinks along a single wall is not only practical in terms of space but can also look very stylish.

One of the key principles to an efficient working kitchen is the ‘golden triangle’, whereby all your essential appliances are positioned close to one another.

Although it won’t be a triangle (more of a straight line really), the principal still certainly applies. The cooker, fridge and sink should be positioned close together in the kitchen design to avoid you wasting both valuable time and energy.

Getting the look right for a one wall design is very important, as the rest space in the kitchen will most likely be used as a dining area for family and friends.

Using open shelving is a great way to draw the eye with an interesting mix of cook books, crockery and even ornaments.

If you are not renowned for your tidiness then this may not be the look for you and choosing some kitchen cabinets would be a better option.

When selecting cabinets and fittings for your beautiful one wall kitchen, it’s important to consider a streamlined design.

Giving the wall a streamlined look will provide it with a satisfying clean cut feeling and will give the appearance that the wall design is longer than it actually is, which is obviously great if you have a small kitchen!

Choosing a pale colour will only add to the effect and, if you choose materials with a glossy finish, it will bounce off light which will brighten up the entire room.

Along one wall designs look truly great whilst also freeing up extra room in your kitchen, so enjoy the extra space as much as you can.
