One of my pet hates is people leaving things on the kitchen side when they could quite easily put them away. Workspace can become a big issue if you have too many large bulky appliances and limited work surface to keep it. I only have items on sight that I use on a regular basis such as my toaster, slow cooker and kettle. Ideally I would love an island in the middle of my kitchen with cupboard space underneath, this would solve a lot of my storage problems and give me more much needed work surface.
Many of our cupboards have plenty of space, but some of that is hidden in corners making it difficult to access. Slide out storage in cupboards helps to organise and de-clutter the available space, making items more accessible without having to kneel down and search. Shelving is a good way of adding more space for storing items such as dinnerware, glasses and cookbooks and if like me my only flat wall is taken up by a radiator, this is a great way of adding a feature to that wall.
Finally, the one thing that I have always wanted is a nice tea set. Yes I have lots of china mugs but they do not match my plates. I cannot count the amount of pots that have been broken but this does not stop me from wanting something nice. There is nothing better than having nice crockery to entertain your guests with and I love this Alice in Wonderland set, wouldn’t this make a great focal point?
