To separate our open kitchen and living room, we made a steel structure that provides additional countertop space, kitchen storage as well as functions as a space divider.

IKEA items used:
  • METOD Base cabinets with brown-black frames
  • NORJE doors, oak with glass front
  • NORJE doors, with acid glass

Our open kitchen plan

We built the structure in raw steel. Then, the structure was welded, perforated, polished and painted opaque transparent by itself.

After assembling the kitchen cabinets, we bolted the structure to the lower cabinets and secured the top to the ceiling. The structure is turned through threaded rivets.

The upper cabinets are screwed with self-drilling screws both above and below the horizontal irons.

No tracks have been used behind the furniture.

The front doors are connected with IKEA hinges as per manual.

The rear ones are screwed with metal anchors.

The vertical structure rests on the ground, is screwed sideways to the IKEA bases and connected to the ceiling with two 10mm plugs on each side.
