'Recycling is still important in a small space as well. Discrete, pull out bins with compartments for sorting compost, glass and plastics, can be integrated into a kitchen, however, small.
'Choose appliances that will make the most of the space available too – a ¾ size dishwasher, for example, or a multifunction oven. And, if you can accommodate a central island, scale it down and create a sociable place for guests to perch. The island pictured below includes a pull-out bread box with integral bread board. Bread boxes take up precious space on a work surface so this clever addition has proved invaluable to the owner.'
