Small Space Ideas from an IKEA Kitchen

Small Space Ideas from an IKEA Kitchen

This room from Cote Maison, furnished entirely in IKEA, includes a few solutions for a small eat-in kitchen table that needs to expand or contract on demand. The nice thing about this set-up is that it combines storage, countertop space, and seating all in one area...

  • The Norden table converts from a counter into a table that seats two or four.
  • Drawers inside the Norden store kitchen accessories and cutlery.
  • Two Nordmyra chairs serve as the main seating in the breakfast nook.
  • A striped Sveje rug separates the sink from the dining area.
  • Stackable Frosta stools stow away under the counter, waiting to be used for extra seating.

If you like the concepts but want to steer clear of an all-IKEA kitchen, a small freestanding counter or gateleg table could serve the same purpose. Or go with the Norden table, but accessorize with other items. For more small space kitchen solutions, click here.
