Ideas for a modern and functional kitchen with bar counter
Do you find your kitchen somehow unfinished and empty? You’re missing something, but what? Imagine what a bar counter would look like in your kitchen. This is a practical and also a modern version, which can be integrated well in any interior.
Straight or rounded?
First, you should look for the shape of the Bar counter decide. The market offers a wide choice, but most of them are with straight lines. The straight bar counter is very suitable for modern and minimalist kitchen equipment. The rounded shape is great in a vintage, country style and Mediterranean style kitchen. Which bar counter shape you choose depends of course on your kitchen size. S and L shaped bar counters are perfect for a spacious kitchen.
With or without shelves?
After choosing the right shape, the next decision is in front of you! Consider what function the bar counter should have. An “open” bar counter without shelves gives a spacious feeling. But unlike the bar counter with shelves or cupboards, it is impractical. You lose a lot of storage space.
Use the counter as a table
Some people use the bar counter as a table. Suitable for this are the straight forms without shelves. With two, three bar stools this is the ideal breakfast table.
Idea for rolling out
If you have a small kitchen, you can add an additional roll-out counter. This allows you to save space and is always available when needed.
The best decision is to use the lower side of the bar counter for kitchen cabinets. Take a look at the various models to find a good organization solution for your kitchen. Maybe you need a special cupboard for the wine bottles or you have always dreamed of rotating shelves!
