With so many of us working from home this past year, and with extensions expected to continue, an increasing numebr of home owners are looking to add a breakfast bar to their kitchen, or replace their kitchen with a suite that includes a breakfast bar or seating. Often, the kitchen can be only quiet working space in the home, and plenty of people are taking advantage of this, with better working spaces. But what should you consider before choosing your new breakfast bar? Well, here at MLS Kitchens, we are Manchester’s leading kitchen design specialists. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about breakfast bars and home working.
What are the different breakfast bar considerations for home working?
There are a number of different considerations to take into account when thinking of the home working benefits of a breakfast bar. These include:
- Power- your breakfast bar will need to be close to an electrical socket or outlet if you are to work from home here. Using extension cables stretched across the kitchen simply isn’t practical, nor safe. As a result, you might want to choose a breakfast bar that runs parallel to the wall, where sockets can easily be installed. The other option is to add a breakfast bar to the kitchen island as many electricians can safely add sockets and power to your kitchen island.
- Space- you will need a breakfast bar that offers a good depth and width so that you can comfortably work with all of the items you need in one handy place. This might determine the type of breakfast bar you choose, and even the layout of the kitchen itself.
- The height of the breakfast bar or seating- if you don’t want to spend your working day perched on a stool, you might need to consider a lower level breakfast bar, that can be used comfortably from a sensible working chair, with ergonomic support.
