Let's talk about Heights

Any kitchen designer will recommend making use of the walls especially if it's ideas that can range from cupboards to shelving options. Speaking of cupboards and shelving, never be afraid to add more shelves as this will have an effect in drawing your eyes upwards, thus giving your tiny kitchen a bit more height. We all know organising is important for every household! Besides, cleaning the dust off the top of the cabinets is difficult. Hence, high walls and high placed cabinets will not only help improve organisation of the kitchen, but it will also reduce dust collection on top of the cabinets.
