Contemporary interior design offers a myriad of ingenious and extraordinary solutions. So when you are about to arrange your new kitchen, why not go for an original and at the same time comfortable kitchen island?
This kitchen island is really simple. The one on the photo was made of three cases and a thick IKEA kitchen worktop. Fix the cases together with screws and add the worktop. On the side of it there is a hook for chopping boards.
The worktop was impregnated. Now just put the cookery books, food processors and other utensils on the shelves, depending what you need to have at hand.
#2 An old sideboard
Are you sure you can’t use and old sideboard or a dressing table for your new kitchen? If you don’t have one, go to a flea market and I am sure you will find something there at a reasonable price. The legs of the sideboard were extended, and the whole piece was painted intensive turquoise blue. A big new wooden top was fixed and painted white. This is a very uncommon kitchen island!
#3 A desk
An old desk on wheels may also become a stylish and functional kitchen island. Just a little bit of paint and self-adhesive paper with decorative marble pattern. The handles were replaced with new silver ones.
#4 Factory cart
Such pieces will ideally match a number of designs. It was found on a flea market. Cleaned and polished, with a new wooden top, the whole thing was also slightly repainted.
#5 Workshop table
You can breathe a new life into a workshop table and give it some beautiful rustic style. This particular piece did not require much effort. Again, just a bit of paint and new handles. The original wooden top is still there.
#6 Wooden pallets
Wooden pallets can be used to make a bed, cases, or even a kitchen island. Pallets, supports and the fibreboard were all painted and then fixed together. Finally the solid wooden worktop was added.
