A breakfast bar in the kitchen is one of the most popular options for homeowners looking to redesign their kitchen space. Not only is this a practical addition to your kitchen, this is also a stylish option. Whether you have a large kitchen or a compact one, a breakfast bar can often be added to the space. But what are the important steps for creating a kitchen breakfast bar area? And how can the right results be achieved?  

What are the important steps for creating a kitchen breakfast bar area?

If you’re thinking of installing a breakfast bar in your kitchen, it can be a good idea to create a zonal area for this. As part of this, there are a number of steps you can take. These include:

  • Assess the layout of your kitchen
  • Choose the right materials
  • Storage solutions

Assess the layout of your kitchen

One of the first steps to take is to assess the layout of the kitchen space overall. It’s important to choose the right space for your breakfast bar so that this won’t be obstructing the flow of the kitchen, and so that it will create a suitable seating space. For smaller kitchens spaces, you could consider adding a fold-down or extendable breakfast bar that can be tucked away when not in use. This will save space while still adding a suitable area for sitting and eating.

Choose the right materials

The next step is to choose the right materials for your breakfast bar. This should complement your existing design theme, and there are a number of different options to choose from. A timber or stone effect worktop is well suited to both rustic and traditional style kitchens, while quartz and metal combinations can be highly effective for contemporary kitchen design.

You should also consider the type of stools or chairs that will best suit the design of the kitchen, and that will also be practical for eating and sitting at the bar. 

Storage solutions

Finally, you should also consider the storage solutions in your kitchen, and adding these to your breakfast bar area to keep clutter at bay and maximise functionality.
