Why you need a breakfast bar in your kitchen

Breakfast bars can serve as a great room divider and are ideal for enjoying quick meals and snacks, or just chatting while you cook. They also offer some extra seating, that's a lot less formal than sitting down at the table for an evening meal.

Kitchen island breakfast bar

Make the most of your kitchen island or kitchen counters by adding some bar stools. Not only can this save space, but also gives you a prime place to enjoy your tea and toast in the morning.

Breakfast bar tables

If your counter space is limited, a tall breakfast bar table might be more suitable. Taller than traditional dining tables, they're great if you want a breakfast space that doesn't take up space on the kitchen sides.

All-day dining sets

Double up space-saving dining sets as a breakfast bar area for all-day seating that doesn't leave you lacking in floorspace. A super seating option for every occasion, whether it's a quick coffee or a family feast in the evening.

Breakfast bar finishing touches

Breakfast trolley

Place a kitchen trolley close to your breakfast bar to keep your morning must-haves close to hand. Save yourself an early rummage through the cupboards by keeping your favourite tableware and breakfast treats at arm's reach when you’re weary-eyed.

Bright start

Make the most of the morning sunrise by positioning your breakfast bar towards a window. And if that’s not possible, add a little lamp nearby to ease you in on those it’s-still-dark-outside early mornings.

Morning brew

When we’re talking breakfast essentials – how can we forget the caffeine? And if you’re making tea for two, or coffee for three, why not add a cafetière or teapot to your kitchen trolley or breakfast bar so everyone gets a cup of what they need.
