How to keep create clutter free kitchen worktops.

Busy worktops making your kitchen look untidy?  Need more preparation space? 

If so, here are a number of innovative options to keep your worktops clutter free and keep your kitchen looking tidy day after day. 

  • Roller shutter cupboards are a great idea for cooks looking for plenty of preparation space. The ALNO version, inset into the wall, allows you to hide bulky appliances but still ensures your items are close to hand when you need them.  You can choose from stylish aluminium or frosted glass shutters to suit the look of your kitchen. 

  • For smaller items such as knife blocks, utensils and spices, multifunctional units enable you to organise everything in one place.  ALNO’s inventive “Safelift” systems are incorporated behind wall units.   Pull it down to reveal the contents, push up to hide them away after use.  Such devices keep things neat, but more importantly keep sharp objects out of sight from tiny hands. 

  • An island unit is the perfect choice for a breakfast bar or informal dining area, but will also provide you with a beautiful open space in which to prepare food or just read the papers with a coffee.  Large, deep drawers can be positioned within the island, giving an impressive amount of storage space, which leaves the worktop clutter free.

  • Extra deep, extra high or extra wide units also create additional space to store everyday items.  Consider functional interior fittings to help keep things tidy.  If it’s tidy, you can fit more in!

  • If you enjoy watching the television or following a recipe direct from the internet, why not incorporate the screen into your kitchen cupboard door!  ALNO’s futuristic design features a 17-inch flat screen within its glass or mirrored cupboard door.  It is so slim it fits neatly inside the door, leaving the whole of the cupboard space untouched.

How to maximise storage in a small space.

Storage space in a small kitchen is a common problem, but you can fit in what you need with some careful planning and installing some indispensable space saving devices.

  • Make the most of your corners by incorporating carousel units which will use space that would otherwise be wasted.  ALNO’s Magic Corner for base and wall units is an extremely clever mechanism which allows every last corner of space to be used, opening up 38% more storage space than a standard cupboard. 

  • Keeping things in order encourages a much more efficient use of space.  ALNO’s side units offer a practical and convenient system for storing food.  Shelves are fitted to the inside of the door, whilst the internal shelves slide forward when the door is open to allow easy access to day-to-day items.

  • End shelf units can provide much needed storage.  ALNO’s new framework system, made from anodised aluminium, acts as a great display cabinet and additional work surface, whilst taking care of your storage worries. 

  • Deep drawers are an increasingly popular alternative for adding essential storage and freeing up worktop space.  ALNO offer drawers in depths of 45, 60 and 75cm, which can provide up to 27% more storage space.

  • Increasing the height of your work surfaces allows for taller base units, in turn more storage space.  ALNO offers two heights: 650mm and 780mm, the latter provides 20% extra space. 

  • Another good tip for organising storage is to ‘store it where you use it’ when it comes to deciding what goes in which cupboard.  Having saucepans stored next to the oven or cups above the kettle all helps.

How to create the perfect space for entertaining.

Creating the perfect entertaining space is increasingly popular as the kitchen continues to be the hub of the home.

  • If you love to entertain but don’t enjoy being shut away from your guests as you cook, don’t be afraid to take down the walls. An open-plan kitchen-diner or kitchen-living-dining space is the perfect choice; not only are they supremely practical but they make the interior of your home seem much more spacious and inviting than a series of small rooms. 

  • Island units offer an ideal informal eating area for a light lunch with friends or a spot of afternoon tea.  They also provide a large preparation space, just add a few stools and it becomes a place for guests to sit and chat to the chef.  
  • Inject some glamour into your kitchen for those evening dinner parties with ALNO’s “LIBERO corner” units.  Satinated glass doors and coloured lighting create a great party atmosphere and make a fantastic end to a run of units.

Kitchen Hunting Devon


It is a hunt to find the right kitchen. I began my own hunt a few weeks ago and after a lifetime in the kitchen business it was a real eye opener to see my own clients in action at the work they love best.

We started by choosing a flooring and our choices led us ultimately to showrooms.

Strangely it was not price which guided our choice and in a world fixated on deals and bargains it was somewhat refreshing to be purchasing based on what I could see and recommendation. My recommendation came from the flooring company fitter. They know there showrooms and guided me to Mandarin Stone where I was truly amazed and stunned.

The breadth of floors to choose from was both breath taking and exciting. But from one who adores shopping, having a complete vast range to choose from was exciting and it made the task to find the perfect floor for my new kitchen, that much easier.
