Make the most of a single-wall kitchen with these tips

Single wall kitchen furniture - white furnitureA kitchen running along one wall is great if you are looking to save space or if you want to create a kitchen diner in a small or narrow space. Not only this, they are practical and cheap to install. Here a few of our ideas to make the most of this kitchen style.

With a single wall kitchen, it is a great idea to separate your room out with flooring or a rug, to create some separation between your cooking and eating areas, and also to ensure your floor doesn't look too blocky. Depending on the shape of your room, you may be able to use different flooring to create kitchen and dining areas. However if you have a narrow space and the kitchen along one of the longer walls, this is unlikely to work so well. In that case, add a rug underneath a small kitchen table. 

With dining tables in a smaller kitchen, the trick is not to go for something too large or with a chunky design. Slimmer designs will create the illusion of more space and will suit a smaller or narrower kitchen. 

Something like the Stanford Cross Leg Reclaimed Wood Extendable Dining Table would be perfect. The farmhouse kitchen table offers a neat, clean design making it perfect for smaller spaces. Available in standard or a higher height, you can create a stylish dining area or even a breakfast bar in your kitchen. Pair the higher height table with wooden bar stools for a wooden farmhouse kitchen with plenty of charisma, and add your colour in with your rug and other plants and accessories.

One of our kitchen table sets would be a great option. The Allegro Live Edge Oak Dining Set is stunning, and is perfect for adding simple elegance to a traditional or an ultra contemporary kitchen. The table can be paired with benches, chairs, or a mixture of both so you can tailor it exactly to your room. If you are struggling for space, you could even push the table against the wall and just have a single bench to ensure it is neatly out of the way. 

Instead of one of our rustic kitchen tables, you could also create extra storage space and potentially extra worktop space with an island. A reclaimed wooden island will not only section out different areas of your room if this is what you are looking to do, it will keep a smaller kitchen area clutter free and will give you space for bulky items you may not otherwise have a home for.

If you don't want extra worktop space and are just looking for storage, a reclaimed sideboard would make a perfect accompaniment to your kitchen furniture. 

The sleek design of the Hudson Living Kielder Oak Sideboard would be great in a sleek, contemporary kitchen with its clean lines and minimalist look. Behind each cupboard is a shelf so there is plenty of storage for dinnerware, or even for putting baskets with store cupboard ingredients or vegetables and potatoes. Alternatively, you could go for a sideboard with an inbuilt wine rack, like the Cotswold Reclaimed Wood Wine Rack Sideboard, ready for all your entertaining needs.

If you love to entertain, a single wall kitchen is great for creating an easier space to move around. You could even create a bar area with a space for serving and making drinks for all your guests, or even just for use as a breakfast bar. Pair with a couple of oak bar stools to complete the look. Not only is this perfect for entertaining, a bar area tends to take up less space than a dining table. 

The Raw Light Oak Tall Stools are perfect for this. The Scandinavian kitchen stools perfectly blend timeless design and the beauty of natural wood for a look which will look great in any room.
