The three compositions below epitomize the classic appeal of the single-wall kitchen and yet each one has a style of its own. The first tends to combine farmhouse aesthetics and warmth of wood with appliances and counters in white.

Yet all the three kitchens blend ergonomics of the one-wall kitchen with their respective styles in a fluid and fascinating manner.
The simple wooden block that feels like an extension of the kitchen island is definitely the most popular choice when it comes to trendy breakfast bars. The shape and size of this sleek addition depends on both the size of your kitchen island and that of your family. The smaller, square wooden blocks save up on space and are a great option for couples who are looking for something understated and intimate. The slender, long breakfast bar that runs the length of the kitchen island can seat more people and combining it with cool bar stools that add color and contrast is a wonderful way to enliven the kitchen.
There is definitely more creative freedom in the large kitchen with a fabulous central island while designing the breakfast bar. Instead of the usual design where the breakfast bar is just a few inches above the island countertop, opt for one that is a few inches below to vary the dynamic of the kitchen. Make sure though that you pick bar stools according to the height of the counter to avoid any future dining hassles.
