Never be overwhelmed with limited space again! The important thing is to keep your home organised with a perfect spot for everything and these fantastic tips and tricks will show you just how to keep a handle on your clutter. Now, let's get started.

1. Shelves in the wall

Opt for shelving that is built into the wall to maximise space and add doors to ensure that your cupboards are a private affair.

2. Pan storage

Include hanging storage for your pots and pans just above your stove and you won't have to hunt for those items all over the place.

3. Keep items at hand

Remember to organise your items in order of what you use most often. It's no use having your special china at hand, when you actually just need your everyday coffee mug.

4. Orderly spices

Create a small shelf above your stove for those spices you use daily.

5. Vintage cupboards
