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.
One of the biggest complaints about kitchen design is the lack of counter space. Considering all the kitchen activities that require a countertop, as well as appliances that are permanently located there, you want to fit as much open horizontal surface area in a kitchen as possible. This can be achieved by adding an island or breakfast bar to an L-shaped kitchen.
Simplicity is important in the kitchen. This is a space that has to be functional more than it has to be good-looking. And yet there’s plenty of room to combine the two. This kitchen island is a beautiful example. Its transparent and sleek base makes it float while its sculptural shape makes it stand out.
In this case, the island extends and drops to form a dining table. It does that on a different level and we mean that literary. There are no legs or columns to support the island and it appears to float, being attached to the platform. Zoumboulakis Architects designed the home in which the island is found and they also included a few other sculptural details as well.
