Mix displays in with storage Use wall-mounted kitchen cabinets to hide what you don’t want to see and open shelving to show off what you do. ‘Leaving a gap between the rows of cabinets creates extra storage and display opportunities and gives an impression of lightness,’ says IKEA co-worker Dagmara of the cabinets in her kitchen.

Hang your favourite items Dagmara uses a magnetic knife rack and hooks above the counter to store small tools and decorative accessories. ‘I like to keep the things I love and use the most in sight and within easy reach,’ she says.

Easy kitchen organisation ‘People are often short on storage in the kitchen,’ says Dagmara. ‘But little ideas can work well. Picture ledges and hooks are great ways of freeing up your work surfaces while also having fun with display, and making the most of unused wall space.’
