Solutions for Small Kitchen Spaces

Designing a kitchen is one thing but designing a small kitchen can seem as if it demands compromises whether that’s in functionality or style. 

With good planning even the most compact of kitchens can work efficiently and look fabulous.

Appliances that maximise kitchen space, that are compact but don’t compromise in style and quality are the key. With space at a premium in today’s compact living environments Ikon have products that may be the solution you’re looking for.

A flush mounted Flow-In 2-in-1 cooktop with integrated downdraft system enables designing clean lines without the need for a bulky rangehood and can create space for additional storage instead.  

The Flow-In solves the challenge of extraction on kitchen islands where it is impossible to use traditional or even built-in rangehoods and works well for kitchenettes and smaller kitchen spaces as the 520mm cooktop is perfectly adaptable to the standard depth of a 600mm countertop. 

The compact unit provides more space in the cabinet underneath the cooktop to maximise storage.

Downdraft Extractors

These are a perfect solution for kitchen layouts where you can’t duct up into the roof cavity. Their remote motor options maximise cabinetry space as the motor can be stored elsewhere in the home.

They are also ideal for those who have windows behind their cooking space. With a touch of a button the extractor can be raised out of the benchtop when needed and provides a powerful extraction solution while creating a modern and uncluttered look.

Sink Stations

A fantastic option for small kitchens when there’s a need to make use of as much bench space as possible. 

When the chopping board and roller mat and insert bowl are in place, Sink Stations can be used as a double sink option without the large cut out in the benchtop. 

Giving kitchens a large sink to wash big pots or a small option for more delicate washing.  The mat offers drainage within the sink, hot pot placements and preparation of fruit & vegetables.  

This is a great extension of the bench without having to compromise on space.

Slide-out Rangehoods

Real space savers and a great option if you have a narrow or small kitchen as they sit neatly underneath a cupboard and can pulled out when needed to eliminate steam and odours.  These now come in more powerful extraction units which are more effective.

Microwave Ovens

One of Ikon’s products that epitomises the true meaning of versatile is their steam/convection/microwave oven. 

It can bake, steam, grill or simply microwave – this oven boasts 11 conventional cooking, 8 steam and an impressive 80 auto cooking menus. It also has a generous oven capacity of 35 litres. 

It ticks an impressive amount of boxes and replaces the necessity for multiple appliances filling valuable kitchen space.
