A mini-kitchen to-go

“Not all flats have a fitted kitchen, so one that’s easy to put up and take down is a handy solution,” says IKEA interior designer Emma Parkinson. SUNNERSTA kitchen fits the bill and has a small price tag too. “Secure it to the wall using two screws”. Add task lighting, a fridge, a portable induction hob and some storage, and voila! You have a functional and modern kitchen; worktop, sink and mixer tap included.

Use smart storage

Minimal clutter and maximum efficiency are vital when you’re living in a small space. Use two trolleys for storage. Keep pantry items in containers on one. Use the other to store dinnerware.

Add some workspace

Double your counter space by putting a chopping board on top of the sink. Emma’s top tip? “Use the board to hide the dirty dishes when unexpected guests pop round.”

Use the shelf space underneath the sink for recycling

Stackable boxes for cleaning stuff and a bin for recycling with an easy-to-access lid fit under the sink.

Get the right light

Clamp a work lamp to the kitchen’s frame. The light can be directed, so you can continue chopping into the night. It’s more fun cooking with an even light to illuminate your worktop, and safer too. Keep your counter clear by hanging kitchen utensils, a portable induction hob and washing up accessories on hooks.

Keep food fresh longer

Store cereals and other dry foods in containers to keep them fresh. These ones have transparent lids so you can see what’s inside, and buying in bulk can save you money too!
