What are the different types of kitchen breakfast bar?
So, what are the options to choose from, when considering a new breakfast bar? Well, there are several, including:
- Stand alone breakfast bars- these are available to buy completely separate to your kitchen. This means that you can install a breakfast bar along one wall, or alongside your kitchen island. Either way, for small or large kitchens, these bring the biggest flexibility to your seating plan.
- Extended worktop breakfast bars- by extending the worktop past the counter tops, a clear worktop space is made. And this is perfect for adding bar stools too, to create a breakfast bar. This works well in kitchens that have one longer wall, as it means that the extra space can be utilised.
- Kitchen island breakfast bars- these are breakfast bars that are part of the design for your kitchen island. This can include drop down bars (bars that are at a lower surface to the kitchen island worktop) or turning a rectangular island into a square island, by adding a breakfast bar to one side. This can be a good use of space in a medium to large sized kitchen.
- Pull out breakfast bars- these are breakfast bars that pull or slide out from the kitchen worktop, to create a breakfast bar that can be used when needed, and put away when not. This can be a good choice for smaller kitchens.
