Kitchen Breakfast Bar

Posted on: August 28, 2013

Looking to update your kitchen but not sure how? Consider installing a kitchen breakfast bar as one way to provide extra space for dining and food preparation, while creating an open layout in the room. Not only will it enhance the design of your kitchen, but it will maximize functionality and help you make the most out of your space!

Benefits of a Kitchen Breakfast Bar

There are many benefits to having a kitchen breakfast bar. A breakfast bar can:

  • Save space
  • Add a convenient space for daily meals
  • Be built in all shapes and sizes
  • Be built with different materials
  • Create an open kitchen design
  • And more!


Whether you want granite, ceramic tile, butcher block, or laminate, there are plenty of options to choose from—making it easy to customize your kitchen breakfast bar and get creative with the design. You can also get creative with the bar stools! Stools come in a variety of different colors, materials, and styles. You can even choose one that fits perfectly under the breakfast bar and stays hidden when it’s not being used—the options are endless!

Designing a Breakfast Bar

When you’re coming up with breakfast bar ideas, there are certain factors to take into account. Consider the following:

  • Size. Think about how many people you want to fit comfortably around your breakfast bar and how big your kitchen is. If you have a large kitchen space, you may want to install a custom kitchen island with a breakfast bar.
  • Shape. Consider whether you want a traditional rectangular or square shape or a more modern circular design.
  • Materials. Choose granite, quartz, Corian®, ceramic, laminate, or butcher block.
  • Mobility. Some breakfast bars come with wheels, which are perfect for smaller kitchens because you can move them around your space as needed. A stationary breakfast bar, on the other hand, can serve as a more permanent part of the room design.
  • Storage.  Think about how much storage you need to determine if you should install a breakfast bar with cabinets, shelving, towel racks, or an under-counter cupboard.
  • Style. Consider a half wall breakfast bar, a kitchen island with a breakfast bar, or a mobile breakfast bar design.
