    Home Decoration help!!!

    Advertisements
    So I am *possibly* moving into this adorable but very tiny little apartment around here and need some help.

    The kitchen is by far the largest part of the apartment (the whole apartment is no more than 450 sq ft). If you divided the apartment into 2, the kitchen and a small bathroom are on one side, and the bedroom and living room on the other. I drew you this very rudimentary picture



    The kitchen is spacious but not really set up right for a true dining area, so I want some kind of a long free standing breakfast bar type thing that I can put stools in front of, that sits against the wall (I've drawn this in pink )

    I don't really know what to google or how to search for this! Need help! Or better ideas!!!!

    If you can't find one that's long enough you could always use the ones that you mount on the wall? And maybe put two right next to eachother to make it a longer one..

    Look on pinterest. IDK how well you are with DIY but something like this could be done for fairly cheap & you could customize it to your style.

    you can do this. I love ikea.
    I had the same problem as you in my apartment in Germany. I bought a countertop one of the fancy ones the guy at the DIY market made it smaller for me, and I bought 2 small but deep wooden shelves as feet. It gave me extra storage. Mounted everything to the wall for stability and it looked great.
