In Greater Sydney and NSW, granny flats are becoming more and more popular. No longer is a Granny Flat reserved for elderly members of the family, now they are mostly built for the great rental returns they yield due to their low cost to build, despite them having all the features of a small home room, a dining room, and a kitchen. They can also be as large as 60 square meters, meaning you can feel confident your elderly relative will be able to enjoy ample comfort.
However, if you intend to move a relative into a granny flat constructed on your property, you need to put some serious thought into the design of the kitchen, one of the most indispensable spaces in any home.

If you don’t have enough space in your kitchen to install as many cabinets as you need for your storage requirements, you might need to get a bit creative. For example, you could buy hanging racks for pots and pans to save cupboard space, or you could invest in items of furniture that double up as storage spaces.
You might want to buy tables and chairs that can be simply folded away, taking up very little storage space when not in use. Think about buying a practical fold-down table that to attaches your granny flat kitchenette wall.
