One big family feast: an affordable combined kitchen and dining space
Take simple storage, flexible dining furniture and astonishingly low prices. Stir well to mix, and you have the makings of this multigenerational family’s combined kitchen and dining space. Finished off with a sunny window bench, music corner and the aromas of something scrumptious bubbling away, it’s a space where this family finds themselves lingering…..long after the plates are cleared.
Sharing meals, making memories
It feels like a shame to call this the dining table when its job description covers so much more. For this multigenerational family of foodies, it’s more like the central meeting point; the one place in the house where all paths are sure to cross. From connecting over coffee in the morning, to debating the day’s events at dinnertime or celebrating life’s big milestones on special occasions, it all happens here.
Chairs, extra storage
When every chair has been filled, it’s time to call in for backup. Stackable stools take up almost no space in the corner of the room – stepping in from the sidelines when the next festive occasion arises. Meanwhile, a multilevel trolley holds all the extra condiments and cutlery, so that all those “hey, can you pass the –” requests go around the table.
Classic bolognese with a climate-smart twist
Grandpa’s famous family recipe of Bolognese gets a meat-free update, thanks to VÄRLDSKLOK shapeable plant mince made from pea protein. It’s simply delicious, topped with grated parmesan and freshly ground black pepper. Serves four as a main.
Plant-based Italian bolognese
STEP BY STEP:
1. Fry the onion, carrot and celery in the oil until the onion is soft but does not yet have any brown colour. Add the garlic, tomato paste and spices and fry for a few more minutes.
2. Pour the frozen mince into the frying pan and fry until the mince has a nice surface. Chop it continuously into pieces with a wooden spoon to avoid it clumping together.
3. Pour over the stock, water and crushed tomatoes. Stir, pour in the salt and pepper. Simmer for 20 minutes, diluting with water if necessary and stirring occasionally.
4. Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the package.
5. Add salt, pepper and spices to taste. Pick the leaves off the basil plant and stir into the pot together with the pasta. Top with grated parmesan.
Kitchen - the beating heart of a food-centric home
You’d be hard-pressed to find bare countertops – or an empty sink – in this always-on kitchen, where pans simmer and pots bubble night and day. Eating is the reward but the cooking is just as fun!
Bakeware - Reach, grab, cook
Pots, pans, bakeware and other utensils are packed away in the kitchen drawers, leaving the walls and worktops free for this kitchen’s regular go-tos.
Cookware sets - The everyday can't-cook-withouts
Who says cooking up delicious meals should cost a fortune? You simply can't go wrong with this 5-piece cookware set, made from high-quality stainless steel for an astonishingly low price.

Little kitchen winners that make meal prep a breeze.
Dining tables for in between meals
Tonight’s dinner may be yet to materialise, but that doesn’t matter. As always, the dining area is a flurry of activity. The two tables pushed together can also be pulled apart when needed, creating more flexibility for everything from homework to railway construction!
Kitchen organisers - Neat and tidy
Drawers full of fresh ingredients, shelves loaded with dinnerware, and a wall-mounted cabinet bringing those supper-time tunes. There's absolutely no doubt that this family takes food and being together seriously!
Ηello, sunshine – Plants for a sunny room
Nothing is wasted in this kitchen. Not food, not space, nor any of the glorious, golden sunlight that comes flooding into the space each afternoon. Glass shelves across the windows create a sunny home for herbs and plants to grow, while the cushioned bench offers a sun-drenched seat to whoever wants to keep the chef company.
Room for it all (and more), using wall organisers
The addition of wall organisers and trolleys gives this smaller kitchen a storage boost.
