If you’re looking to expand your seating set-up or give yourself a more obvious place to entertain, a kitchen bar can be a great way to do it.
And since no bar is complete without a couple of chic bar stools, a kitchen bar gives you the opportunity to bring a pop of color, texture, or visual flair into your space, too.
Of course, there are many different ways to bring a kitchen bar into your space. You could add a kitchen island, reimagine some of the countertops you already have, or spring for a full-blown renovation.
But remember, as long as you have a couple places to sit—and room to eat or drink—you should have everything you need to make a kitchen bar happen.
Take a look at some of the prettiest kitchen bars we’ve ever seen and consider some design ideas you could bring into your own space.
You’ll be glad you put in the work the next time you’re chowing down at your eat-in kitchen—or hosting a wine night at your new bar.
