Storage is essential to a functional kitchen. This kitchen utilises a range of different methods, all of which can be employed in a large or small space, with relative ease. Additionally, these methods would work well for anyone who rents their abode, as each solution can be put back and rectified when moving.

11. Bright and colourful accents

Colourful accents might not be the first thing you consider when updating your kitchen, but they can work wonderfully when you want to add character and charisma to your space. Consider painted joinery, or simply add a lush indoor plant to create contrast and charm.
