Admired recently in the New York Times: this low-cost kitchen in a 250-square-foot converted garage in Seattle, designed and built by artist and designer Michelle de la Vega using a mix of new elements and reclaimed materials from local salvage yards. Great for a guest house.http://remodelista.com/posts/steal-this-look-instant-camp-style-kitchen?_from=related
Inexpensive Island As island is a desirable feature in any kitchen, but building additional cabinetry can get pricey. For the most economical way to add extra counter space and some seating to your kitchen, consider ordering a prep table from a restaurant supply company. Made of stainless steel with sturdy wheels, this surface can easily be relocated for entertaining.
Kitchen Island Table. We've had this for a few years and this is where everyone usually hangs out. We seldom use our dining room. The table is an 8 foot stainless steel restaurant prep table on wheels. We covered the bottom with basket weave leather. The chairs are commercial grade LEM Piston Stools. The light we had made and it goes great with the space.
