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.
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.
Wallpaper is usually a delicate item, unable to face the rigors of a kitchen’s environment, especially around the sink area where splashes of water can easily ruin it. But what about vinyl wallpaper? You bet! Vinyl wallpapers are waterproof as well as very resistant to humidity, and can even stand up to scrubbing.
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.
There are many different metals available for you to choose from when creating a backsplash. Besides the stainless steel shown for this project, there are also aluminum and copper tiles which come in many styles, designs, and finishes. If you have finally decided what kind of metal tile you will use and the wall look you want to achieve, go for it. To make the installation as perfect as possible, be sure to turn off power in the kitchen to avoid accidents with live wires and go easy on the amount of glue you use. Let the applied tiles dry for a few hours before using the stove or oven, and then prepare to enjoy your newly decorated kitchen.
