Small houses sometimes force their owners to combine dining rooms with kitchens. The problem that then arises is that a small kitchen will often feel more congested if you add a dining table. For those of you who are experiencing problems like this, you should get rid of the dining table and replace it with a breakfast bar. This breakfast bar is smaller than an ordinary dining table so it is suitable to be placed in a small kitchen. This breakfast bar is often used as a kitchen table for arranging food.
Initially, the shape breakfast bar is closely related to the word Bar. Is an area commonly found in a cafe that provides various drinks. The word bar comes from a barrier, which is something that blocks or limits the bartender and the guest. The barrier can be a separator called a counter that is given a chair with the appropriate height. Along with the design of the kitchen, the concept of the bar is then carried and adapted into a house with a smaller or mini table/counter size. And a breakfast bar appears.
The breakfast bar is mostly designed in the form of “letter l“. If seen from the installation, this L-shaped breakfast bar has two types of installation, which are designed stand-alone or free-standing breakfast bar and are designed to blend into a kitchen set or kitchen wall (such as the peninsula). The two breakfast bar designs must have different goals and objectives. When viewed from the shape, there are two types of L-shaped bar designs in the kitchen, namely, single-tier and double-tier. Single-tier is a design bar that only has one function that is really as a breakfast bar. While the double tier is a breakfast bar design that is usually incorporated with a kitchen island so this makes it has many functions.
The breakfast bar is an area in the kitchen which is often used as a place to provide snacks and various drinks. The breakfast bar generally consists of a table and high chair equipped with lighting on it. Unlike the bar inside the cafe, this breakfast bar is usually used as an element of design and interior decoration in the kitchen room. This area can be a gathering area or communal area in the house, a place to chat while enjoying a variety of soft food and drinks. For homes or apartments of small size, space limitations can be overcome by making a breakfast bar. The bar can be used as a substitute for eating places that generally require large space.
To have a breakfast bar itself does not require a large area. The breakfast bar can be designed against the wall. At first glance, this bar is very similar to a peninsula which also has similar functions and purposes. But usually, the peninsula is designed to be shorter and integrated with a kitchen set, while the breakfast bar has a typical height with a high stool bar too.
Besides having a function to beautify the kitchen, this breakfast bar also serves as a gathering place or for dinner, if you are tired of having dinner in the dining room. Not only that, but you can also use the breakfast bar in the kitchen to chat, just sit around while enjoying snacks with your loved ones. Its function which tends to be used as a social place makes the design of a kitchen breakfast bar must be attractive.
One of the benefits of kitchen breakfast design is to save money. You no longer need to have a special and separate traditional dining room. Your kitchen breakfast bar can be used as a dining room as well as a functional and pleasant gathering room.
