What do you get in a compact kitchen?

The design and layout of a compact kitchen will depend on the amount of space available and what you need from the unit. However, most of our kitchens boast the same basic design which includes a sink and storage unit, with an integrated fridge and surface-mounted stove top.

Building up from this, each of our larger and more complex designs then adds other features and fittings – including splashbacks, microwaves, extra surface space, and even dishwasher units.

The aim of a compact kitchen is to fit the available space with a contained unit which thoroughly maximises its footprint through clever design and stacked appliances. Whether it’s a microwave mounted into a wall-hung storage cabinet or a fridge and freezer built under a stovetop, you can rest assured that a compact kitchen will deliver what you need, in a format that works for you.
