How to Make a Small Kitchen Feel More Spacious

These tips, suggested by our master craftsmen, will really benefit tighter spaces and give the impression of a much brighter and more workable area. 

Compact does not have to mean cramped. The solutions we recommend include:

  • Shelving

  • Tiling

  • Go Handleless

  • Storage

  • Corner Units


Consider open shelving in the same colour as the walls so they blend into the décor whilst providing practical storage facilities. Don’t overcrowd them but keep the items on display to a uniform colour, if possible. We also offer fitted wardrobes to maximise usable space throughout homes.


Instead of limiting the tiling to the splashback area, run the tiles up to the ceiling as this will give the appearance of extra height. Don’t choose a busy decoration either, we can show you how to keep it simple at our kitchen showroom in Stone.

Go Handleless

Ditch the handles and knobs, and opt for handleless doors and drawer fronts with hidden access points. Tylman’s offers bespoke furniture with a range of touch-latch and J-handled doors specifically designed to give the illusion of more space in our bespoke kitchens.


Only leave the items you use frequently on display. Keep the worktops uncluttered and consider using part of our understairs storage systems as an additional pantry, if possible. We also create bespoke media units to meet all your needs.

Corner Units

They can be the bane of everyone’s existence, especially in smaller kitchens where it’s difficult to reach into them. Have a look at our showroom examples of bespoke solutions, designed by us in Stone to make life a lot easier.
