But the shape and the design are elements that always differ. What’s important for a kitchen island with seating is to be a perfect combination of functionality and versatility. This means it needs to have built‐in storage spaces, to fit into the room properly, even when it’s expanded and to allow you to use for a variety of activities, such as prepping, having breakfast, working, etc.
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.
Another efficient design idea for kitchen bars is to build a pass through the bar with an opening from the kitchen to the dining area. Opening up the dividing wall will spice up the décor and make things convenient. The pass can be easily used to set a buffet table when you have guests at your place. Sliding doors may also be added to the pass in order to prevent your kitchen being on display all the time.
Want your backsplash to reflect your passion for traveling around the world? Or perhaps you simply find the idea interesting. Either way, a map backsplash is a really original and wonderful idea. It’s pretty much like applying wallpaper except you’re using maps. Similarly, you ca also use pages from magazines, comic books or wrapping paper.
Some plates are too cute to throw away or use at the dinner table, even if they’re made of plastic. So why not display them in your kitchen? An interesting idea is to use them to decorate your backsplash. You can hang them with pop can tabs although other techniques can be just as practical and simple. Feel free to improvise.
