DIY Kitchen Island
“This kitchen island is made from a surprisingly simple frame built around two stock cabinets, and can be sized to fit ANY base cabinets by changing only ONE measurement. When we started our kitchen remodel, this exact island was quoted to cost just over $4,000 (not including the countertop…yikes!). We built it for under $250 using only basic tools (i.e. drill, miter saw, circular saw, etc). Building anything this large may seem daunting, but all the cuts are fairly simple. Believe it or not, the hardest part is mitering the baseboard.”
Whether you want more food prep and storage space or are looking to increase your home’s value, a kitchen island is a worthwhile investment. But, don’t spend thousands of dollars buying one, just follow this easy tutorial and build your own.
