Are you building or renovating your kitchen? Or simply looking for ways to make a more functional space? Here are a few handy tips & tricks:

A pull out knife block drawer is a great use of a narrow space which is otherwise not quite big enough for a normal-size cupboard. Whilst practical, this also ensures cooking tools are still within reach, but saves on bench space.

Cords can often look messy on the counter tops and with the number or devices we seem to have these days, cords can be a real annoyance. The solution for this is a drawer that holds a power board. All the cords can be kept in the drawer and the devices are kept out of the way when they are on charge. Handy!

Chalkboard walls are also a handy addition to any kitchen space. Great for writing memos to the family, calendar schedules, recipes, shopping lists or even as a great way to keep the kids close by & entertained whilst you are in the kitchen.
