2. Tefal Cook4Me 6 litre: £299.99

3. Tefal Mini Compact Steamer 7 Litre: £25.00

Multi-tiered steamers can be fairly bulky to store - but not this compact little number from Tefal. Thanks to the three different tiers, you can cook a number of courses at once – making it easy to prepare a healthy meal of vegetables, rice, meat or fish. When you're done, its three stackable cooking bowls are stored upside down on its base – saving you valuable worktop or cupboard space.

Just because your kitchen is small on space, doesn't mean you have to be limited on style. These colourful Joseph Joseph bowls stack together to save space – and they look great.

5. Kitchen paper roll holder: £12.99
Sometimes, the little solutions can make a big difference. Get paper towels off the counter by mounting a paper towel holder underneath a cabinet.

No room for a spice rack? Store spices in these magnetic holders and keep on the fridge or attach the rack to the kitchen wall. This 6-piece Stainless steel magnetic spice rack from Zoozio® costs £9.99.
