Little kitchen expands into living room + three minor hacks





DSCN0381

Materials: Besta cabinet, Faktum kitchen, Numerar countertop

We moved into a new flat and wanted to use our previous Faktum kitchen. The trouble was that it simply couldn’t fit into the smaller place (or I would have to live without a dishwasher – which was not a possibility). So we decided to go with the trend and join the living room area with kitchen. And this is the result.

We discovered that IKEA doesn’t sell Faktum in this black wood design any more, so we used stainless steel decor for components that we didn’t have. Which looks really good plus kids can use it as a magnetic board!

We bought Besta cabinet, joined it with Faktum under the Numerar countertop and remodeled it to hide the computer and media. To prevent the computer from overheating, we drilled few holes into the cabinet and attached the fans onto the holes to ensure the air circulation. It may not be obvious from the photos but there is maybe 3” wide space between the Besta cabinet and the countertop. Note: The fan driving the hot air out is also keeping your feet warm while you are working :-)

And finally I add three minor hacks or ideas which are part of the living room or kitchen:
- Chandelier out of Sekond cables, Ledare E27 and Torka
- Dryer hideout built from remaining Numerar countertop
- Wall herb garden made of Asker and Grundtal

    Great hack! At the hidden computerplace I just wonders, why the upper fan is an inbound and the lower one an outbound. This is counter streamwise…

    Especially the light system is adorable! Can you please describe more detailed how you built it. Thanx!
