Cottage Kitchen goes Industrial

We have struggled with designing a kitchen out of a small space that lacked cabinetry and any appliances on one side.  Given the need to buy all new cabinets, appliances and countertops, I tried find a solution that provided lots of counter space, reasonable cost, a design element and fit in a small space.  Plus we wanted to create a coffee/breakfast bar within the space.  This was one of the toughest design challenges we have faced in our renovation projects.  

I kept seeing islands that met the criteria we wanted so I decided to look at the open space like an kitchen island. I googled 48 inch tables and found that restaurant grade stainless work tables might work.  I finally found the site “” which had open tables for our coffe table and shelfed tables that would be a work space on the other side of the stove.  With shipping, the tables cost $500.  

We are thrilled with the solution- plus they came with specific measurements so no surprises and had countertops built in.  The industrial restaurant grade stainless give a modern, unexpected pop to the cottage kitchen and solved all our design needs.  Now just have to get gas stove hooked up!
