Never underestimate the power (and glamour) of built-in shelving. Here, floor-to-ceiling organizers provide plenty of space for food, allowing the back wall to be dedicated to prized possessions like heavy-duty appliances and breakable china.
Use the back kitchen for everything breakfast. Tea, coffee and toast making. Cereal getting and all the cutlery and dishes that get used at breakfast. Then you do not mess your main kitchen until the serious cooking starts later in the day.
