Every home chef knows how important kitchen space is. The last thing you want to be doing is trying to figure out where to set your pot of hot food right in the middle of dinner. Perhaps worse is being limited to what you can cook, simply because you feel there is not enough space to create the meal you have in mind. But limited kitchen space doesn't mean you restrict what you cook and start making plans to knock down walls. Instead, there are many options available to give you more room so you can spend less time worrying about space and more time worrying about the next recipe you are going to try.
When looking for kitchen renovation inspiration, where better to start than those with access to the most sought after interior designers. It’s always exciting to see what can be achieved when money is no object; what luxury materials have been used, how they have made use of those high priced, yet relatively modest sized, apartment spaces, which luxury appliances have been selected? And most importantly, which features can be adapted and recreated to fit with your own space and budget?
