Thanks to this original product, your bottles and glasses are kept safe above the water level.
You don’t have to go large to get a hardworking breakfast bar.
Not only is this mini peninsula big enough for two bar stools, it also has a cabinet and shelves for extra storage. This end-of-counter surface even helps separate the kitchen from the adjacent living space. The owners of this bright, open-plan space have cleverly tucked their kitchen into the area next to the stairs. Opting for white and pale gray features, including the countertops and stools, helps this substantially sized seating area blend in.
If your kitchen is located in an open-plan room with a partition wall, get your place to perch by making use of the space as these homeowners have done. One run of cabinets continues beyond the wall, and the countertop turns the corner to form a ledge for bar stools to sit neatly under. This idea can be adapted for a room with structural pillars too. Instead of opting for an island-breakfast bar, why not try a wall-fixed table?
If you can’t install a wall-fixed model, hunt around for a tall free-standing table you can fit into a spare corner of the room. In this kitchen-dining area the owners have managed to fit in quite a roomy island.
This overhanging countertop is super clever. Not only does it create a seating space, but it contains three nifty drawers too. But it gets better — a simple partition creates storage for glasses above the built-in wine cooler. To create the illusion of space, it’s a good idea to keep furniture off the floor. The countertop here is extended from the kitchen cabinets to form a floating peninsula breakfast bar. The lack of base cabinets gives the room a feeling of flow. The compact kitchen here has plenty of storage along two walls, so the other wall has been utilized for a streamlined breakfast bar. Two swivel stools are tucked under and can be turned around to face each other or the chef. The narrow surface is large enough to enjoy breakfast and a glass of wine and some nibbles in the evening. Sometimes even a small extra work surface is enough to make a difference in a busy kitchen. The compact island here provides a useful spot for preparation and even includes a handy cabinet. Anything larger wouldn’t have been able to fit in the space, so the size of this one is ideal. For items like bar stools and dining chairs, we offer free 2-way shipping.

We have a lot of different types, so you can tidy everyday things away in drawers and cupboards or proudly show off your treasures on open shelves or in glass-door display cabinets. What’s inside is beautifully displayed through sliding glass doors – safely guarded from everyday dust. Drill together 2x4s to create two cleats for bar (we made two because our bar wrapped around a corner). Using the stud finder, locate the studs on the wall. Determine the height you would like the bar to be. Using 4” screws, mount assembled pieces as cleats into the studs at the appropriate height. Cut two pieces of birch to the length/width of each cleat, creating the top and bottom pieces of the bar. Attach the top and bottom bar surface to the 2×4 cleats. Our bar wrapped around a corner, so we rounded the corner of the bar in order not to have a sharp edge. Face the front of the bar with a thin strip of bendable plywood attaching it with wood glue and nails.
If you have a rounded corner, you may have to use clamps to hold the plywood in place until you can nail it on. Fasten molding to the wall to cover the gap where the bar meets the wall. This is optional, but may be necessary if your walls are less the plumb. Use wood filler to fill in gaps and nail holes, sand the bar then paint with white semi-gloss paint. Painted mahogany finish with a clear protective lacquer. Includes mounting hardware; anchors and screws. Because it’s modular, it can be configured to suit various spaces. Within our photo gallery you’ll find residential and commercial applications that use round stools, metal chairs, wood chairs, and chairs with upholstered seats. And if you have a question, we are here to help. If you like to unwind with a drink but don’t always like the stress or expense of going out on the town to get one, try setting up your own minibar. While there are plenty of options available to purchase, concocting your own bar lets you bring out your personal style. A coat of cheerful yellow paint makes it bright and welcoming. Adding a mirrored backsplash and downlights can quickly turn a dark closet from drab to fab and provide a secret and secure oasis for mom and dad. Clustering wine racks and shelves on a wall creates the feeling of a bar without taking up any floor space. Painting the cart a funky color strikes a lighthearted mood that invites a party atmosphere. Simply bolt the tool to the wall, but first make sure your chosen rake has prongs that are long enough to securely hold the stems of your glassware. This vintage look is great for indoors or outdoors fun; the wagon could even be filled with ice to serve as a temporary cooler for parties. Simply alternate stacking cinderblocks and wood boards to create a basic bar and shelves. The juxtaposition of concrete and wood will bring a modern flair to any interior.

The original kitchen, storage and utility spaces were outdated and very chopped up with a mechanical closet placed in the middle of the space located directly in front of the only large window in the room. The original large window is now revealed with a new lowered eating bar and a second island centered on it, featuring a dramatic linear light fixture above.
We enlarged the window over the main kitchen sink for more light and created a new window to the right of the sink with a view towards the pool.
The main cooking area of the kitchen features a large island with elevated walnut seating bar and 36” gas cooktop. Cabinets are set off with sleek stainless steel handles. Lighting is recessed and kept to a minimum to maintain the crisp clean look the client was striving for.
I added a pop of orange and turquoise (not seen in the photos) for pillows on a bench as well as on the accessories. The soft curves of the island and range hood allow the eye to move effortlessly throughout. Countertop materials and cabinetry tones were mixed eloquently giving the entire space a unified look.
