A Norden kitchen island





Materials: One Norden item and some Franklin chairs

Description: I was looking for an island in my kitchen which is not separate from the living room.

As I’m not a billionaire, was searching a cheap solution…
As I already have a Norden item from Ikea, the size of it was too small for me, and I wanted it to be able to sit 6 to 8 persons. I also thought it would look better if it was closed at the back.


So, I just removed the top of the Norden table which was 42×188 cm and found a bigger countertop which was 90x200cm.

Then, I closed the two sides and the back of the item with white panels, and added a foot for added stability.

I use then with some Franklin mid sized chairs (63cm high)
Et voila!

    can you use the drawers?

    Yes , Cryptomon , the top plate is placed closer to the edge of the norden element on the kitchen side

    Love this! What is the width of the Norden without the top? 69″ with the top, but I only want to use the bottom and need it to be 60″ … fingers crossed
