Seating in the kitchen can be important, but it can also be difficult to fit into the space available. A breakfast bar in the kitchen can be a great addition, offering practical space for seating, without taking up too much floor space. But why should you consider installing a breakfast bar in your kitchen? Well, here at MLS Kitchens, we are Manchester’s leading kitchen design specialists. As a result, we have produced this guide to the top reasons to install a kitchen breakfast bar.
What are the advantages of installing a kitchen breakfast bar?
So, why should you install a kitchen breakfast bar? Well, there are several reasons, including:
- Casual seating- adding seating into your kitchen might not be absolutely necessary for you or your household. Especially if you have a dining table elsewhere. So instead of wasting space with another formal table, a breakfast bar can provide a casual seating space, perfect for the morning cup of coffee, or for homework.
- Part of the kitchen- a breakfast bar is simply created by extending the work-surface, and not installing cupboards above or below this space. This means that it is built in as part of the kitchen, and it provides a simple, easy seating solution.
- Smaller kitchens- this is the perfect option for smaller kitchens without the space for a large seating area or corner. This is because the breakfast bar doesn’t take up too much room, although you might lose a little bit of storage space.
- More worktop space– a breakfast bar is just an extended work surface. So you could make use of this additional space, when the breakfast bar is not in use. It can provide a clear, larger space for food prep, cooking and baking, or even using a laptop and working from home.
