Don’t underestimate your storage needs.

Choosing the right kitchen storage will keep your home organised. To find out which kitchen storage features are suitable for you, take a look at The Signature Collection.

Don't neglect your internal waste needs

The importance of recycling household waste means we need more bin storage in our homes, with the majority of our households needing at least three bins.

To conceal your internal waste, Masterclass Kitchens have designed a series of VelaBin configurations to suit all household needs. The VelaBin also boast a carbon biofilter that blocks any unwanted scents from escaping.

Don't forget worktop space

Clutter-free worktops can make a big difference to your home life by increasing productivity and motivation. But clutter-free worktops can only be achieved if you have the storage capabilities within your kitchen.

One popular way to declutter your worktop is by incorporating pantries that can house your small appliances like a toaster and coffee machines or choosing an instant boiling water tap to prevent needing a kettle.

Never underestimate the importance of lighting.

We all want a kitchen that is light and bright. If your kitchen does not benefit from an abundance of natural light, then there are vital tips you can follow to improve your lighting.

Choosing lighting under your wall cabinets or your plinth can add a luxurious touch to your space and provide that much-needed light, especially when preparing food. Alternatively, if you want to increase the natural light in your space, consider removing wall units as they often darken spaces.
