A combined washer-dryer will save space and can be tucked away behind kitchen unit doors when not in use. In an open-plan kitchen, you will also need a separate dining and/or living area, placed as far away from the work zone as possible so as not to disturb anyone eating or relaxing in those areas. A breakfast bar is a smart way to squeeze in informal seating in a small kitchen.

Averyl Dufour Kitchen, October 18th , 2017. Planning and decorating your kitchen. Kitchens are the most hard-working room in the home.

Kitchens must, of course, be practical, but with an ever-increasing range of kitchen cabinets, kitchen appliances, kitchen worktops and kitchen accessories to choose from, they can also be a stylish space that reflects your personality.
