We have a galley kitchen which is 7ft X 10ft - it's ridiculously tight for a family to cook in. Without wanting to majorly rebuild the back of the house to get a larger kitchen, what would you say are the remedies to dealing with such a small space?

Giving this a go thanks - what a prize!

My dream Kitchen would be smart and stylish yet able to age gracefully, hardwearing yet reasonably priced with lots of storage space.

Hello HaydonWomble! Thanks for your query.

It's true that kitchens come in all shapes and sizes. I asked our team how to maximise the space that you have and this is what they said:

"It depends on where the door and window are, but, assuming you have doors at either end and a window at the side we suggest you have units on both sides. You will have 900mm space in the middle. Although not ideal, it is workable if you are not looking to restructure your home at this stage.

On one side have a fridge/freezer, tall oven housing and microwave housing with drawers below. Also either 3 or 4 800mm wide drawers under the hob.There is room for an infill on either side.

On the other side have a 600mm base with pull-out bins, a dishwasher, a 600mm sink base with 1.5 or single bowl sink, a washing machine and a 500mm wide tall larder pull-out. Where you feel you can, have wall units.

The standard finished height of a kitchen is 2120mm. Consider having taller units finishing at 2300mm. This will give you 900mm high wall units. If you have the ceiling height there are also 285mm or 360mm high units with flap doors that can be fitted above the tall units and wall units".

So, there you have it! With a space like this the key is to have it accurately measured and assessed by a professional so you can be sure what is possible. This should not cost you a penny.

Beforehand it's helpful (and this goes for any kitchen revamp) to spend time thinking about how you currently use the kitchen and how you want to use the kitchen, as this will help the designer create a solution that will work for you.

Hope all this helps. Good luck!
