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.
This kitchen is not particularly large but the fact that it’s almost entirely white helps create the impression of a larger space. The wooden floors bring a refreshing contrast while the small and compact kitchen island sits in the center and complements the entire décor.
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.
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.
Since the kitchen sits separated from the rest of the furniture, it naturally stands out. This makes it a wonderful choice for a focal point. This kitchen has a simple, white interior décor and the only element that doesn’t match that color palette is the kitchen island. This allows it to stand out and to create the transition towards the second part of the room.
