10 small kitchen extension ideas to maximise your space

Looking for small kitchen extension ideas that won’t guzzle up your entire garden, or bank balance? Fed up with cooking in cramped conditions but not ready for a major build? Whatever your motives for extending, there are plenty of ways to make your kitchen ideas a huge success on a small scale.
