As many of you may know, we buy “ugly” homes, fix them up and make them beautiful so we can sell them.
Whenever we start on a new project, I’m in charge of organizing and opening up the kitchens!
Firstly, I knock all isolating walls down – walls that “isolate” the chefs from the rest of the home and activity.
This way, it brings the family or friends when entertaining together.
My new addition is to make a bar that separates the kitchen from the lounging or seating area that’s far enough away from the real action in the kitchen – because, as a person that loves to cook, I don’t like too many people in the kitchen or people “in the way” when I’m cooking, preparing or cleaning up.
However, I do enjoy the fellowship from a good distance when entertaining – it can be a lot of fun.
This way, your guests or family can sit on their Bar Stools enjoying some glasses of wine or amazing appetizers or hors d’oeuvres you made!
For me, this works fabulously. So, when designing the new and improved kitchens, I always have a beautiful bar with a granite countertop or something equally as beautiful and make it a focal piece and a place where people can visit and have fun.
I design the bars and the kitchens to be functional, not just for show!
You may just want to try that in your own kitchen remodel or improvement…Let me know what you like about your bar in your kitchen by leaving a comment below.
