But the shape and the design are elements that always differ. What’s important for a kitchen island with seating is to be a perfect combination of functionality and versatility. This means it needs to have built‐in storage spaces, to fit into the room properly, even when it’s expanded and to allow you to use for a variety of activities, such as prepping, having breakfast, working, etc.
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.
Since there’s not of space to work with in a kitchenette, you can’t have all the appliances you might want. Full‐size appliances are almost never a part of a kitchenette’s design. Usually they include a microwave, a small fridge and freezer and a hot plate. It’s enough to prepare a few quick and simple dishes but if you want to impress with your cooking skills this is not the place to do it.
If you are the proud owner of a small apartment with a very small kitchen space, fear not because there are incredible simple solutions which will make the area look good while keeping it functional. The biggest issue with small kitchen spaces can be a claustrophobic feeling, but there are a few tricks you can use to make it look bigger and brighter. As the image shows, adding a mirror backsplash over this stove caused the light to double by reflecting the window from across the room.
