In order to make optimal use of the open kitchen in a square, somewhat small space - we have chosen not to place a dining table but a self-designed kitchen island with seating for 4 to 6 people (2 to 3 on each side). An inexpensive variant - cut to size with cut-to-size mdf from Then the frame was wrapped with furniture foil and a plastic marble plate with cut-to-size plastic marble skirting boards (of the same material)

DIY: kitchen island

Step 1 - design made Step 2 - all measurements measured for the size of the kitchen island (taking into account seating and the opening of cupboard doors and dishwasher + walking space - herein +/- taking into account standard sizes) Step 3 - on a scale of 1: 20 drawn Step 4 - mdf sheet material + plastic marble sheets calculated and drawn & then ordered. Step 5 - first wrap the frame for each part with furniture foil. Step 6 - frame assembled as a letter H stretched in width. (Secured with wood glue and screws of course) Step 7 - kitchen worktop placed on top and fixed, just as described in step 6. Step 8 - plastic marble plate placed on top and glued. Step 9 - plastic marble skirting boards attached with mounting kit. Step 10 - place it where you want it, place bar stools and enjoy! A very simple + cheap way to experience the experience of a kitchen island!
