Our small but very elegant kitchen – with many DIYs.
My sweeties, I can hardly believe that I’m telling you this today, but… our kitchen is finished! God, I’m so excited. Actually, the kitchen-topic was really difficult for us because our kitchen-space is really limited and we didn’t wanna pay thousands of euros for a tiny designer kitchen.
Thus, our kitchen stayed undone for many months and we really didn’t wanna spend any time inside it, so we hardly ever cooked any food but ate outside all the time. But that’s no solution, so we kept thinking and thinking…
… until one day, we had the idea that perhaps, it didn’t need to be a conventional kitchen after all. How about simply using the basics and creating something very beautiful but also useful out of it? Yes, we thought and then we discovered the IKEA HEMNES sideboard, which seemed perfect. We only added new, danish cone wooden feet for our furniture and from there on, our kitchen grew very quickly into what it is today.
I think it’s really important to understand that there is no need to follow conventions all the time. If you have a creative mind, you can come up with the weirdest but also the cleverest solutions for all kinds of problems. So did we. And if you are lucky like me and have a man with skills, he will even build you said kitchen without any problems.
So, the bar is made of old wooden fruit boxes, the white wooden plate we had custom made at the shop, I only painted it white in the end. We also have some wine boxes on the fridge and on the wall (our mini-bar) and a big piece of wood that I once found somewhere outside is now handing from our ceiling, holding our bar lights. So cool, right? I dig it!
As you see, you can have a beautiful small kitchen with very little budget. You only need some ideas and those, I’m giving you today! I hope some of you will feel inspired by this post and start redecorating their homes as well! Enjoyyy!
