We absolute love design that moves away from the mundane and this is no different in case of the breakfast bars either. Do not be limited by the rigid geometry inside modern kitchens and opt for a curved breakfast bar instead! Sure, this demands custom kitchen island, bespoke storage units and a bit of extra work. But the final result will be well worth the extra effort and dough you put in! Small breakfast bars that are an extension of the window ledge, stone breakfast bar blocks and ones crafted using glass stand out from the pack instantly.
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.
Kitchen storage units are some of the first things we settle on while planning for a new kitchen. Wall-mounted kitchen cabinets with modular ease can transform your kitchen in an instant. But taking this to next level is under-cabinet LED strip lighting that allows you to easily place these custom cabinets just above the kitchen countertop in a small kitchen. For those short on vertical space or even looking for ways in which they can bring better task lighting to the kitchen counter, LED strip lights offer a convenient and cost-effect option.
There are plenty of homes these days where the dining table is a smart extension of the kitchen island. It is barely a surprise then that the breakfast bar can go down the same route. In the larger kitchen, this space can also double as a great party zone where additional counter space can be used in multiple ways both while prepping and hosting. What makes a breakfast bar truly special though is the way it brings together your entirely family after a long, hard day or even during few fleeting seconds each morning as you rush out. Beyond all the aesthetic and ergonomic advantage, this is the true charm of that dashing breakfast bar!
A subtler and darker shade of mint will make the space look breezier, but just as old-fashioned as you need it to be! The color is definitely beneficial if you are going for a lively atmosphere! The calming pastels make sure it‘s not too vivid and keep it flexible enough to match other decor elements as well, just in case you don‘t want to stick to only one style. You can mix in some dark rustic wood and see how it works with the retro kitchen setting!
The one-wall kitchen often sees the sink, stove and the refrigerator anchored to the same wall with additional cabinet and storage space. But this is definitely not a ‘must‘ on all occasions and there are times when you can turn to the dining room nearby for additional storage or even some space for the refrigerator. It is all about creating a kitchen that works for you and your cooking habits.
