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.
One of the easiest, most fun and versatile ideas is to have a chalkboard backsplash. That’s because it’s easy to get right since all you have to do is paint the wall and let it dry. Then you can customize it however you want and you’ll never get bored of it. And even if you choose not to write anything on the wall, it will still look great.
Want your backsplash to send a message? How about a stenciled design? That should do the trick. First apply spackle on the wall and let it dry overnight. Then paint the wall any color you want (in this case a dark chocolate tone). Then sponge on bronze metallic paint. Then comes the tricky part: the stenciling. You need to do some research and pick a technique. Also, be patient.
Given the reduced dimensions of this kitchen, certain measures needed to be taken in order to maintain a functional and airy décor. The kitchen island is quite small and, in addition, it features a very simple design with only one shelf underneath. The walls were painted black and this makes the white cabinets stand out more.
You can also use the Malm bedroom dresser as part of the island. First build the base( with an Ikea base cabinet you can find as is) and then attach the dresser. After that, move to the sides and top. Use wood countertops and fasten them in place with brackets. For the face of the island you can simply use plywood.
