Kitchen breakfast bars are great for so many reasons. Whether your kids are using it for breakfast on the go before school, or you’re using it for a brunch party, it’s a convenient way to provide the most important meal of the day to your family and guest at home.
If you are redoing your kitchen and are looking to add a kitchen breakfast bar, keep reading for some design ideas we’re loving.
Having Fun With Floating Bars
We love a floating kitchen bar for a simple and minimal look. Extend a bar off of your cabinets to play with your space. Because this idea doesn’t go all the way to the floor, it makes the space look more open and modern.
Pair it with some sleek and simple bar stools on both sides when the bar is being used. You can store them to use the bar for extra counter space when needed. We love this idea in an all-white marble kitchen paired with white or light wood bar stools.
Light It Up
We love pairing kitchen bars with awesome lighting. It’s a great way to make this area a focal point, and bring some brightness into this space.
Pendant lighting is great for any kitchen with high ceilings and can add some interesting detail to your kitchen. We love an all-white, glossy kitchen paired with rose gold pendant lighting over the kitchen breakfast bar.
If you really want your kitchen breakfast bar to glow, consider under glass lighting. This look is best in a modern kitchen.
If you want some extra storage, install some in your breakfast bar. We love a breakfast bar with cabinets on one side or slim drawers on both sides. This is a great way to store the placemats, silverware, and more that you will use when you hosting at your breakfast bar.
Adding hardwood to the surface of your breakfast bar can be a great way to add some contrast and warmth to your kitchen. This idea can be great in a farmhouse styled home, and it gives a great solid butcher’s block feel.
Pair this look with white cabinets and fun pops of color, such as yellow or teal bar stools and paint details.
