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.
Adding a splash of color to your décor is always a welcomed way to make the environment brighter, but in a kitchen too much color could overwhelm the room. So, what might be a good DIY possibility? That’s right, a backsplash! This project presents a very cool idea for protecting your walls from unwanted stains while animating the light in the environment. The choice made by this home owner was for a kitchen backsplash made of glass. Visit a local glass shop to locate a single 36 inch square sheet of polished or back painted glass for around $200, and have an easy DIY project for your kitchen.
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.
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.
Ever considered simply painting your backsplash without actually using anything else? You can pretty much create any pattern and design you want. In this case, a herringbone pattern was chosen. To make something similar, you need a lot of tape. Decide on a size for your painted tiles. Then make tiny pencil marks on the wall to know where the grout lines should go. After that, make the horizontal lines and start taping and painting. It’s tricky and you need lots of spare time for a project like this but it’s also really original.
