The Station Ashby has been painstakingly created by entrepreneur Steve Housden and his family who wanted to bring their dream of an international-standard interiors store to the region; a showroom that would cleverly combine the very latest in bespoke kitchen and home design - whether from manufacturers such as Rempp or Hacker or the hand-crafted, bespoke designs of Steve himself – right through to appliances from household names such as Miele, and Sub Zero and Wolf. It’s a concept that sees the creation of interior solutions, from concept to completion.

1. Multi Use Appliances
Who needs a separate oven, grill and microwave when you can purchase appliances that do all this and more in one compact space! Multi use appliances are the way forward when it comes to freeing up space in your kitchen. Another top tip is decanting things into pretty jars, particularly ones that you can stack on top of each other.

2. Hidden Doors
Every nook, cranny and crevice can be filled with handy storage in small kitchens and what looks like a panel can be pulled out to reveal a long stretch of shelving or hooks that you can keep your tools of the trade in.

3. Lots Of Light
Lots of light is one of the most important things for small kitchens. Light, bright and airy colour palettes, shiny, reflective metal and even spotlights can help give the illusion of more space. This small decorating trick can really make a difference!

4. Super Shelving
Shelves are your friends when it comes to small kitchens! Place spices, jars or utensils high above workspaces on shelving to create the illusion of room in your kitchen.

5. Don’t Cut Corners
Just like shelving, corners can be utilized for handy storage spaces. There are lots of places you can be corner shelving now, so don’t let that room go to waste, particularly if your kitchen is an odd shape.
