LEGO has always been associated as child’s toy but fanatics who might have grown in age but still young at heart, take things into new heights as they incorporate their favourite building blocks into their jobs.
Parisian designers Philippe Rosetti and Simon Pillard bought an IKEA kitchen island and covered it with none other than, LEGO pieces.
LEGO pieces of different shapes and sizes were used to cover the kitchen island.
The kitchen islands makes for a perfect conversation starter in the kitchen.
According to the source, the designers used an estimate of about 20,000 colourful LEGO block to complete the stunning island.
They have named it the ‘Munchausen LEGO Kitchen’.
Although some people commenting on the photos dreaded the idea of LEGO covered kitchen island, it is undeniably a cool piece of furniture. However when it comes to practical application, can you imagine slicing tomatoes, potatoes, and chicken for your chicken with tomato sauce pot dish on such a surface? Or worse, cleaning after the mess you have made for preparations?
LEGOS are outlined everywhere and putting them together does not create a solid, smooth surface. Instead, you will have fruit juices and other liquids seeping through its LEGO lines. If the kitchen island was layered on top with a smooth clear surface, such as glass, then it may be more realistic but limited.
If you loved this idea then here are other great countertables you might want to try for your kitchen. They require a little less time to install but are built for the job.
Many of these countertables are visually appealing, unique, and entertaining. Some are movable while some feature multiple countertables for different kinds of purposes.
There are also raw and natural looking countertables that create a crisp contract with its contemporary units.
These countertables particularly interests me because it gives a very unique and creative approach to functional countertables. These are great Do-It-Yourself projects you can do with your family or friends. Apart from that, they aren’t as expensive as the other designs featured on this post.
If you are interested in upgrading your kitchen, make sure that the rest of your home is in sync with the change. Simple changes that could create more harmony include replacement windows for your windows and the rest of your home, colours of your walls, and simple curtain change can do so much. Apart from that, you can consider hiring a professional kitchen designer so you don’t have to worry about the outcome of your kitchen. This is of course, if you have the budget for a major kitchen renovation.
There is another article I read that thanks to the Internet, homemakers are feeling more and gloomier with their kitchens. There is a feeling of stress and frustration over the fact that most of the beautiful and luxurious kitchens they see can only happen in their dreams of be a Pinterest pin forever.
According to that article, we should learn to accept the type of kitchen we have, especially that many of us are in a rental home. This means changes can’t be made and if making major changes were an option, would it be worth it since it is, after all, a rental unit.
Accepting your kitchen and its current condition is key to feeling happy. So as long as you have space where you can cook, slice things up, wash dishes, and whatnot, you have a kitchen.
That LEGO kitchen island though does look like an affordable DIY for homeowners who want to liven up their kitchens.
