First, a quick BEFORE look of our kitchen.
The 'kitchen island' is actually a desk. And as you can see, there's clutter accumulating on it *sigh*.
Next, here's a glimpse of inside the kitchen cabinet.
You can see the waste of space here. This section is actually not the worst part, but I wont show it to you because it's just too embarassing :p
Without further ado, here's the AFTER look of the once space-waste cabinet.
Simply just by adding a shelf insert! How easy is that :)
I use IKEA Variera shelf insert, which not only function well but also look nice as well.
What I mean by looking nice, beside having a sleek design the shelf insert also have a pretty perforated surface.
That's why I came up with the idea of using it as a table/ desk screen, as seen in the next picture. The screen does wonder in hiding all the clutter :D
If you notice, we also closed the lower part of the desk with gypsum painted in white. This was my husband's idea.. he cut, painted and fixed the board on the desk himself.
The overall look? Tadaa!
Not bad, eh? ;)
