Why Breakfast Bars Are a Boon for Kitchens



Many homeowners immediately think of adding a kitchen island when planning a kitchen renovation project. However, not all kitchens are designed to accommodate a kitchen island. The good news is you still have another similar option: the breakfast bar.

In this post, DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Orland Park makes the case for a breakfast bar and why it just might be what your kitchen needs.

More (Counter) Space

The last thing that a cramped kitchen needs is a feature that is more for show than it is functional. If your kitchen leaves a lot to be desired floor-space-wise, a breakfast bar is the perfect addition. Since it’s usually attached to an existing wall or countertop, a breakfast bar offers more counter space (read: working space) without taking up precious floor space. You can also utilize the cabinets and cupboards under your breakfast bar for storage.

You’re also in for a treat since breakfast bars offer the perfect informal space for you and your family to grab a quick bite to eat in the morning (or at any time of the day). The quick cleanup is also a nice bonus.

A Functional Divider

If you’d like to set a clear boundary between your kitchen’s working area and the dining area, then a breakfast bar is the way to go. The best part is that a breakfast bar, if designed and installed properly, isn’t an eyesore. In fact, breakfast bars offer the perfect blend of form and function.
