An attic is usually a space that’s used to store old stuff that collects dust and to scare the kids with ghost stories. However, this family had lots of space there but were not sure as to what to do with it.
The room was mostly empty with bookshelves, a desk and some exercise equipment. See how we turned this empty space into a fabulous IKEA home bar and kitchenette with enough space for the whole family! This project was completed with a $2024 budget and ADEL doors in an off-white finish.
Let’s take a look at this IKEA home bar step by step! Read more after the jump:
What are the main features needed at this IKEA home bar?
- A countertop overhang would need to accommodate 4 guests. The space would act as an informal eating area, too.
- Most base cabinets need to include pull-out trays or drawers to make items more accessible.
- No wall cabinets would be included in the design, except for the space between the stove and dishwasher. This cabinet would be used for glassware.
- Some type of open shelving needed to be included close to the stove or dishwasher.
- The corner had to include a Lazy Susan accessory to keep the space functional.
