Lucy Searle added this to 7 Small U-Shaped Kitchens Overflow With Space Maximising Ideas5 Dec 2018

Go up and overYou can make your U-shaped kitchen feel as wide as possible by removing the upper units on the two longest walls. However, if you do this, you might need to make the most of the rear wall to incorporate more storage. As the far wall is likely to be well-suited to housing a large fridge-freezer, maximise the space by framing it with floor-to-ceiling shelving. Here, the open shelves have become an attractive focal point and make the perfect display space for everyday items that need to be accessed frequently.

4. Hide in plain sightBe creative when mapping out your kitchen and deciding how to place and hide appliances: The best solution may depend on the shape of your room. In this long, narrow space, the owners have tucked the fridge and freezer behind white doors at the end, and surrounded them with bespoke open shelving for crockery, creating interest that draws the eye. When integrating an appliance, always ensure there’s enough ventilation so it doesn’t get too hot, which could be a fire risk. Remember, integrated appliances tend to be a standard size and fit in standard cabinets.

Use space above the doorWe typically fit shelves and cabinets on our kitchen walls, but overlook the chunk of space above the door. This kitchen has storage recessed above the door, but an inexpensive alternative is simply to fit a shelf here.

Build in recessed shelvesMake the most of every inch in your galley kitchen by building storage into the walls. Here, they’ve ditched wall cabinets and opted for recessed shelves to the left and all around the larder. The storage makes a feature of the back wall, drawing the eye along and elongating the space. The lack of wall units also helps to open up the room and make way for some useful pendant lighting.

You can make your U-shaped kitchen feel as wide as possible by removing the upper cabinets on the two longest walls. However, you may need to compensate for this with plenty of storage on the rear wall. Since the far wall is likely to be well-suited to housing a large refrigerator, maximize the space by framing it with shelving that goes all the way to the ceiling.
