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.
A small dining bar for two to three persons can also be created by extending one of the counter tops along one side. Besides having enhanced work space when the dining bar is not being used, you will also have the exceptional benefit of using the space to serve breakfast or snacks to the kids.
Even though this is an open floor plan kitchen so there aren’t any visible barriers between the spaces, it still has a compact look. The kitchen island is small and all the furniture comes together and created a cohesive and well‐balanced décor. The contrast between the crisp white details and the richness of the dark brown furniture is very elegant and beautiful.
If you prefer open shelves in the kitchen, then get yourself a Billy bookcase and a Numerar countertop and make a kitchen island. Cover the back of the bookcase with beadboard and attach the countertop. You can also install hooks on the sides for extra storage.
