How To Maximise Your Kitchen Worktop Space

Is worktop space high on your priority list?


Are you fed up with your kitchen always looking like you’ve just competed in the Bake Off final?


When it comes to designing your new kitchen there are a few things to consider that will free up some valuable space and keep your work surfaces clutter-free…

Island Unit

Island Unit… If your kitchen is large enough to accommodate it, have your hob in an island unit. It’ll be a functional cooking area with plenty of room for food preparation.


An island will also provide valuable additional storage space to help clear everyday items out of sight whilst still being easily accessible.

Wall Storage

Wall panelling with a built in storage rail means the items that you need on hand can all be kept off the worktop.


Whether hooks for cooking utensils, a shelf for herbs, spices and oils or a knife block for hanging – the panel system is your best friend when working in the kitchen – perfectly placed and functional.


Deep Drawers

Consider having some deep drawers put into your new design. They look great and allow you to store away your toaster and other appliances that you use regularly but don’t need on the worktop, as long as they’re easily accessible.


An island is a great place for deep drawers giving you easy access to pots, pans and large cooking utensils in the heart of the kitchen… Exactly where you need them.


Boiling Water On Tap

Opting for a Quooker boiling Hot Water Tap means you will no longer need a kettle on your worktop…or in your life!


A Quooker tap dispenses 100°C boiling, hot and cold water whenever you need it. Let us explain what actually happens above and below the worktop.


The Quooker system consists of a small tank in the kitchen cupboard that is linked to the boiling water tap on the worktop. The tank acts like a vacuum flask connected to the water mains. The air in the insulated wall is so thin that the heat is unable to escape.


It therefore takes very little energy (just 10 watts) to keep the water in the tank at 108°C. The water only starts to boil when the tap is turned on and the temperature of the outflowing water drops to 100°C. While the water is flowing out of the tap, fresh water immediately flows into the tank.


Low shelves just above the worktop or decorative spaces left in a run of tall units allow you to keep items off the worktop such as tea and coffee containers, fresh herbs or cookery books.


All things that take up space but, don’t necessarily need to be on the worktop.
