Design of an IKEA kitchen island with room to sit on a counter is relatively simple. By reviewing islands to see which styles and materials are appealing, any homeowner can make a kitchen island fit within two or three days or less. An island is a great place to prepare food while guests or family members sit for conversation. Living within the budget, anyone can use recycled materials or materials purchased on close out sales for the project.
Review kitchen design books and kitchen remodeling magazines to get ideas for building an island. Outlines a basic shape that will fit the kitchen floor space. Draw a square island, L-shaped Island or any shape that will fit the allowed space. Plan to build the kitchen island table to sit on the highest level or about a foot lower than the countertop table space. Draw the island cabinet on millimeter paper. Create a top count at least 36 inches high. Plan to build table space higher if bowel movements are higher. Sketch any shelves or doors that will be located below the kitchen island. Sketch of feces or a sitting bench that will suit the finished island.
Nail 2-by-4-inch timber boards to the kitchen floor to contour the perimeter of the IKEA kitchen island. Construct the framework to create a 4-inch toe-kick space under the sides of the island. Cover the outside of the frame with 1/2-inch plywood to the box on the island. Add pearl board panels or appropriate heavy and note board boards to create a stylish exterior.
