            • 1. Make it monotone

              Bright colours are great for opening a small space. Take Ellen White's lead by embracing white tones to maximise light for a spacious setup.
            • 2. Choose a new neutral

              Warm shades are a must for compact rooms, and @dra_carpentryandbuild has used a neutral grey tone to soften an interior for a cosy atmosphere. 
            • 3. Go with gloss

              Reflect light around a compact room by opting for gloss-finished fronts. This high-shine surface creates a bright area that opens up even the tightest rooms.
            • 4. Try out two-tone

              Mixing and matching different colours can make a room look deceptively large. Pair dark units with light timber tones for a stark contrast and opening effect.
            • 5. Look to L-shaped

              Make the most of every inch of walls, like @jamesduhan, who has created an L-shaped layout, adding plenty of storage to keep the small room clutter-free.
            • 6. Work with one wall

              Pick a one-wall layout, like @goodchantier, who has created a linear style that maximises floor area, offering an uninterrupted counter for a functional space.
            • 7. Distract with patterns

              Draw the eye with the striking look of herringbone floors, like @athomewith_katie. The pattern stands out as the star, adding detail for the illusion of space.
            • 8. Switch to slim counters

              Picking a compact laminate worktop is a quick small kitchen idea. The trend for slim counters is always popular, making it a savvy choice for saving room.
            • 9. Save on kettle space

              Cut down on clutter by swapping a kettle for a 4-in-1 tap, giving boiling water in an instant for a multi-functional fitting that saves space on surfaces.
            • 10. Select a striped effect

              Like borders, wall panels offer a neat way of adding a vertically-lined feature, focussing on walls rather than clutter, making a small room appear bigger.
