Kitchen Bar Design

Designing an L shape bar is one of the easiest ways to create bar space in a small kitchen without disturbing the functionality of the kitchen. The L shape bar provides work station on one side, and the other side can be used as an overhang of dining and chairs or stools. Extension of the counter tops may be used as the smaller side of the L shape bar. However, ensure that there no cabinets on the top of the countertop to block the view. On the other hand, the longest side of the L –shape bar can be used as a bar space with bar stools being kept on the other side. However, the base cabinets of both the sections can be easily used to store miscellaneous things.

For flexibility in a small space, consider creating a bar from a cart or cabinet on wheels, as designer Leanne Ford did here: You can move it out of the way when you need the extra room.
