The kitchen island is a must‐have in most homes. Even though being able to incorporate it into the décor means that you need to have a kitchen that’s large enough to accommodate it without problems, this restriction doesn’t go as far as that. The great thing about kitchens islands is that they’re usually multifunctional. A kitchen island can be a great prep area, especially if it has a built‐in sink. But the versatility doesn’t stop here. You can also use the kitchen island as a bar or breakfast area.
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.
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.
If you are skilled with techniques for finishing wood, you could apply a different stain color to play up the backsplash design. After you have decided on the configuration layout, apply the individual boards to the wall using liquid nails adhesive. I can guarantee you a really authentic rustic look as well as a great wall texture.
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.
