Designing an L shape bar is one of the easiest ways to create bar space in a small kitchen without disturbing the functionality of the kitchen. The L shape bar provides work station on one side, and the other side can be used as an overhang of dining and chairs or stools. Extension of the counter tops may be used as the smaller side of the L shape bar. However, ensure that there no cabinets on the top of the countertop to block the view. On the other hand, the longest side of the L –shape bar can be used as a bar space with bar stools being kept on the other side. However, the base cabinets of both the sections can be easily used to store miscellaneous things.
If you want your backsplash to look as if it’s made of wood without actually using this material in the kitchen, the solution couldn’t be simpler: use peel and stick faux wood flooring strips. Working with them is extremely easy. Just measure the space, cut them to size and stick them onto the wall. Finish the project with your choice of paint color, apply two coats and enjoy the new look.
We have taken and used chalkboard paint ideas here before and if I remember correctly, we mentioned this particular idea as well. The reason chalkboard paint can be a great backsplash idea is because of the ever changing possibilities. You can write a new funny message everyday, list a favorite recipe, draw funny faces, or cover the area with an artful design to name a few. The particular pattern seen in this image shows alternating shapes and tones of light and dark achieved through the use of a stick of chalk.
The first project on our list features a wonderful rustic backsplash made from the reclaimed wood of old shipping pallets. You can see this backsplash is a great DIY project opportunity for your kitchen because it uses inexpensive materials to create great looking results. If you decide to have this kitchen backsplash, locate some old pallets with boards in good condition, scrub the boards clean, and cut them into smaller sized pieces.
Make a small, mobile kitchen island using an Expedit shelving unit, Lagan countertop and Branas baskets, all from Ikea. First assemble the bookshelf, attach castors to the bottom panel, cut the countertop to the desired dimensions, secure it with brackets into an L‐shape and then cut an opening above one of the baskets for the garbage bin.
