L‐shaped kitchens are very common. They are practical because they offer an internal structure that offers a décor that’s perfect for cooking but also for everything else. Whether they are a separate room or they are part of an open floor plan, L‐shaped kitchens feature plenty of counter space which can be a crucial detail and that can make the difference between a practical kitchen and one that lacks something important. They also have the shape necessary for also including a kitchen island.
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.
In the case of a kitchenette, on the other hand, there’s not a lot of room for creativity and flexibility. There’s very little space to work with so the design usually has to be mostly practical and style becomes a secondary priority.
If you are the proud owner of a small apartment with a very small kitchen space, fear not because there are incredible simple solutions which will make the area look good while keeping it functional. The biggest issue with small kitchen spaces can be a claustrophobic feeling, but there are a few tricks you can use to make it look bigger and brighter. As the image shows, adding a mirror backsplash over this stove caused the light to double by reflecting the window from across the room.
You can also use the Malm bedroom dresser as part of the island. First build the base( with an Ikea base cabinet you can find as is) and then attach the dresser. After that, move to the sides and top. Use wood countertops and fasten them in place with brackets. For the face of the island you can simply use plywood.
