A small kitchen can look a lot more warm and welcoming with open shelves to store all those day to day crockery items.

Tinned foods and groceries can be bought months in advance so you never run out of anything again. A large grocery cupboard with plenty of shelves will ensure that your space stays neat and tidy.
