The bar of the bar is often associated with a large kitchen where one can afford certain luxuries without saturating the space. However, a bar that is adjusted and proportionate to the size of the kitchen is not only a practical but aesthetic element. The most important thing in this case is not to limit yourself to the standard options and let your imagination fly and try to put the boldest ideas into practice.
It may be difficult at first to decide what size our bar should be. Although barbells usually have a height between 110-120 cm the versions for the home are usually quite low and especially if it comes to kitchens of reduced size, with about 90 cm in height will be enough to not create an environment too oppressive. So with a stool of about 65 cm in height will be enough to be comfortable to the bar of our kitchen.
We must also have space for the legs, so the countertop must have enough overhang to place the legs and be comfortable sitting before our bar. The arrangement of the bar is also important so it must be far or not obstruct the passage in the so-called working triangle composed of the kitchen, the refrigerator and the sink.
Even if we install our bar in a ready-made kitchen, we will have to follow the aesthetics and style of it as much as possible. It should feel like a harmonious piece and that it does not stand out excessively from the rest of the kitchen.
This is not an obstacle for us to try to create a different atmosphere in the bar area, a more intimate or special environment. Thing that can be easily achieved with warmer lighting than the rest of the kitchen.
And it does not have to be an exclusive space, a multipurpose area will also serve as a bar depending on the time of day or the tasks we are doing.
