It is increasingly common these days to find in a kitchen a splendid breakfast bar as these elements are really functional, since in addition to offering an extra space where to place as an area for daily meals, in many cases it also serves to accommodate the sink or hob.
Distribution of kitchens with bars
If you have doubts about the height of the kitchen breakfast bar, you should know that the possibilities of height, sizes, and shapes are endless -from the smallest, for one or two people, to designs where six diners sit comfortably-, so they adapt to the dimensions and floor plan of any kitchen. No matter how small a kitchen is, you should know that there are also breakfast bars for small kitchens.
The only requirement to be taken care of when installing a breakfast bar is that it doesn’t obstruct the passage. As for the materials, it is possible to choose a bar in the same material as the kitchen countertop or opt for an element that contrasts with the whole.
NEFF extractor hoods also help to create an open and clean environment thanks to the concealable worktop extractor or the ceiling extractors that effectively extract the fumes without being a nuisance in the kitchen.
If having an island in the center of the kitchen is already a really practical distribution, its functionality is even greater when there is the possibility of adding an overhanging countertop that allows you to attach the legs comfortably. In addition to the storage capacity and extra work surface offered by the island, there is also an area for light meals. It only needs to be completed with a couple of stools.
Under the window
The space under the window is a perfect place for those looking for a kitchen with a breakfast bar. You can use it to eat, also taking advantage of natural light, but it is also perfect when you are looking for options to not occupy this front with furniture that would hinder access to it.
In this case, it is necessary to take into account the opening system of the window; it is convenient that they are sliding since with the hinged opening ones the diners could be knocked into when the leaves are open.
In homes where the kitchen has been chosen to join to the living room to gain visual amplitude, a breakfast bar will become a perfect solution to mark the passage from one area to another without creating a feeling of being overwhelmed.
As this image shows, the standard height of the kitchen countertop, about 90 cm, is not always the ideal height for the breakfast bar. Bars over one meter high, bar-style, are accompanied by high stools. By establishing two different levels in the height of the furniture in addition to adding dynamism to the decoration the kitchen will be partially hidden from the living room. There are hundreds of possibilities in terms of sizes of breakfast bars for kitchens.
Breakfast bar attached to the wall
It is not always possible to extend the worktop into a peninsula or to install an island with a breakfast bar in the center of the kitchen. When a linear or two-front layout has been designed, it is possible to take advantage of the wall free of furniture if you do not want to give up a kitchen breakfast bar. In this case, it was made in wood to bring a touch of warmth to the white and steel.
Peninsula with breakfast bar
Whether it is kitchens open to the living room or U-shaped distributions, extending the countertop in a peninsula is an ideal solution to create a comfortable work area; in the first case, in addition, it will help to delimit the kitchen itself from the living room or the environment with which it shares space.
The peninsula will gain in functionality by equipping it with cabinets and extending its countertop to the floor in an inverted L to use it as a breakfast bar.
Bar and cooking area
The new extraction systems, increasingly powerful and silent, allow the design of islands or peninsulas that house the hob and a breakfast bar. At Hogarguti they have Neff decorative extractor hoods for islands, wall-mounted or inclined hoods that stand out for their completely integrated design and for being quiet and efficient.
While being able to have kitchens with breakfast bar depends on the distribution of furniture, every kitchen, however small it may be has a space in which to locate an area for breakfast or express meals.
