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.
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.
Regardless of the size of the kitchen, a kitchen island is one of the most important and more practical pieces of furniture. It’s a functional work surface and it often doubles as a storage unit. So if you have a small kitchen just choose a small kitchen island. A small island can also be a strategic option is larger kitchens if the objective is to maintain and airy and spacious look. Here are a few examples and ideas.
This next project is a little bit tricky to create and because of the material used, a little more expensive, but it does look wonderful once installed. Stainless steel tiles can make for a dramatic backsplash look, but the entire kitchen space will also feel the impact. Although the installation steps may look like rocket science expertise is required, these tiles are very easy to install, they do not require grouting, and will last forever.
This is a lovely and inviting cottage‐style kitchen with a traditional interior design. It features white furniture throughout with natural wood details and accent pieces. The balance between the coldness of the white elements and the warmth brought by the wood elements is very nice. The kitchen island is small and doubles as a breakfast table.
