Hello,

The property has quite an old kitchen. Its small and wondering if there is a better design to it if i get a new one, rather than paint cupboards or replace cupboard doors. Thats the cheaper option, although as you can see storage is very minimal.

At the end of the bench was a standalone cooker and next to it a tall fridge freezer.
No real other place to have them. No separate utility where you could at least stash the washer & fridge.

Any ideas?

Thanks

1. You could do away with the radiator under the counter or put in a much smaller one .
2. I would keep everything as it is on the window side except to have a longer worktop.
3. I would buy 900mm high wall cabinets to make more storage space (or as high as you can fit in.
4. With a narrower rad you could put the fridge/freezer on that side.
5. A fairly cheap option is to look on eBay for used fitted kitchens/cabinets to replace the existing
6. Have a look at Howdens kitchens and http://www.diy-kitchens.com/ where we bought ours

Go to b&q for a free design consultation, they'll have some idea of cost and design they'll print off for you, takes half an hour tops, and gives you a detailed listing of the bits you need (which you'd need going with any company).

As others have said the rad is wasting a lot of space, use a slimline double rad (less than half the width of your existing) or even look at a kickboard rad which will mean cupboards can go all along there
