Efficiency Meets Elegance: Designing Bespoke Kitchens for Small Spaces

In the world of interior design, kitchens hold a special place. They are not just spaces for culinary creation but also hubs of social interaction and family bonding. At The Main Company, we understand the significance of a well-designed kitchen, regardless of its size. For over four decades, we have been crafting bespoke kitchens that marry efficiency with elegance, infusing each project with personality and unique style.

Craftsmanship at Its Finest

Since the seventies, The Main Company has been synonymous with craftsmanship and authenticity. Our kitchen designs are not just about aesthetics; they are a testament to meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail. Handmade by our master craftsmen in our North Yorkshire workshops, each project is a labour of love, combining traditional techniques with modern innovation.

One of the hallmarks of our designs is the use of authentic materials. From salvaged timber to reclaimed flooring, we source the best in new and old materials to create kitchens with character and charm. Our extensive range of finishes, including clean oak, character oak, traditional reclaimed pine, rustic pine, maple, and cherry, allows our clients to personalise their spaces according to their unique tastes and preferences.

Small Spaces, Big Ideas

At The Main Company, we believe that every kitchen, regardless of size, deserves the same attention and care. Small kitchens present a unique challenge but offer an opportunity for creativity and innovation. Over the years, we have designed many small kitchens that maximise space without compromising style or functionality. Here are some of our favourite strategies:

1. Frameless Shaker

In small spaces where every millimetre counts, opting for an on-frame kitchen can be beneficial. Take, for example, our design for a small treehouse kitchen. By utilising the frameless shaker style, we could maximise space without sacrificing style, creating a functional and beautiful kitchen.

2. Open Shelves

Unlike traditional closed-shelf cabinets, open shelves offer a more flexible storage solution, allowing you to optimise every inch of space. By eliminating divisions, open shelves create a sense of openness and airiness, making small kitchens feel larger and more inviting.

3. Tall Units

When it comes to small kitchens, vertical space is your best friend. Our bespoke approach allows us to tailor tall units to suit your specific needs, providing ample storage for items used less frequently. Whether it’s seasonal cookware or oversized appliances, tall units offer a practical solution for maximising storage in small spaces.

4. Corner Storage

Corner cabinets can be a challenge in small kitchen designs, but they also present an opportunity for clever storage solutions. From magic corners to carousels, plenty of hardware options are available to make the most of these tricky spaces. In one of our designs, we opted for open shelving in the corner, creating a stylish and functional storage solution that maximises every inch of space.

5. Filling Voids

One of the joys of bespoke design is the ability to transform wasted space into valuable storage. In a recent project, our designer incorporated a wine bottle holder behind a run of kitchen units, turning what would have been dead space into a functional storage solution. By thinking outside the box and utilising every available inch, we created a kitchen that is as efficient as it is elegant.

Final Thoughts

At The Main Company, we believe that good design knows no bounds. Whether you have a sprawling kitchen or a compact space, our bespoke approach allows us to tailor our designs to suit your unique needs and preferences. From frameless shaker cabinets to open shelves and tall units, we have the expertise and creativity to transform even the smallest of spaces into functional and beautiful kitchens that you’ll love to cook and entertain in for years to come.
