Many smaller properties and apartments may have a single wall kitchen. This is a particular design choice that positions the appliances, and cabinets, along one wall of the space, leaving the rest of the walls open. While this may limit storage, it can be an effective option for small homes when the kitchen is designed for sleek functionality and to maximise efficiency,
What are the effective design options for single wall kitchens?
There are a number of factors to consider when it comes to designing an effective single wall kitchen, that will be both practical and functional, even with limited space. These factors include:
- The kitchen layout- to make the most of the available space it’s important to consider the kitchen layout. The placement of appliances, storage, and work surfaces should be strategically organised along the single wall to create an ergonomic flow. Cabinets and drawers can be installed above and below the countertop, providing ample storage options while maintaining a streamlined appearance.
- Aesthetic design choices- when it comes to the aesthetic appeal of single wall kitchens, the choice of materials and finishes plays a significant role. Incorporating a cohesive colour scheme that harmonises with the overall interior design of the home can enhance the visual appeal of the single wall kitchen. To achieve this, you will need to choose materials and finishes that will complement the design style.
- Space saving appliances- another important consideration is the selection of appliances. In a single wall kitchen, space-saving appliances are essential. Compact and integrated appliances, such as slimline dishwashers, narrow refrigerators, and built-in ovens, can help optimise the available space without compromising functionality. The use of efficient ventilation systems is also crucial to maintain air quality and prevent cooking odours from permeating the living area.
