With continuous development of home furnishing industry, every corner of home can be perfect. So, what I offer you today is design of a small kitchen bar.
Adding a breakfast bar to your kitchen can not only enhance aesthetics and style of your kitchen, but also enhance its practicality.
First, benefits of a kitchen bar
▶1. Various functions
In early morning it is place where owner prepares breakfast and reads newspaper, while eating it is dining table, just sit here, drink and chat.
▶2. Storage and space sharing
In an open kitchen, it is not only a soft partition between kitchen and dining room, but also serves as a space divider, and also serves as an invisible storage. The space below can be turned into a closet to house kitchen utensils that are not normally used or to store bulky items due to discounts at the supermarket.
Second, kitchen bar feng shui
▶①Feng Shui Bar Shape
Bar counters in kitchen have different shapes, which not only makes our choice more convenient, but also improves decorative effect of kitchen. However, when we choose a bar table, we must pay attention not to choose a shape with obvious corners that are missing or protruding too much. From a Feng Shui perspective, a bar table of this shape has a strong “angular evil” influence. And this kind of impact will have a greater impact on people who are more psychologically sensitive, and to a certain extent will affect health of family members.
▶②The direction and tone of bar corresponds to Feng Shui
The color tone of bar counter also requires our attention when decorating, and there are certain differences in color of bar counters located in different directions. The bar counter, located in a southerly direction, suits red tones in its design, and such tones have meaning of attracting wealth. For a kitchen bar located in north, it is appropriate to choose black or blue tones, these are two colors of water in five elements that can help wealth in kitchen. The kitchen bar located in east can be decorated in green, close to nature, it refers to wood in five elements, and bar of this color also has meaning of attracting wealth.
▶③Feng Shui decorations on bar
Decorations are indispensable in design of bar, but there is a certain amount of feng shui in design of bar. On diagonal where door to hall opens, you can decorate bar counter with lucky stones or put flowers in a vase of water. Since this diagonal line is a position of wealth, it should be combined with some lucky accessories to make furniture more prosperous. If you are using plants to decorate your bar, you should choose a few evergreens with round, wide leaves that will not only keep potted plants fresh, but will also be a symbol of health.
Third, size of kitchen bar
▶The depth of rod should be at least 40-60cm so that it is convenient to store.
▶It depends on working space, minimum space should be at least 90cm to be able to use it conveniently.
▶The height and size of bar is also special. Single-layer bar should be 110cm, and double-layer bar should be between 80-105cm to accommodate items.
Fourth, kitchen bar practice
▶1. Corner strip
It is most often located in corner of room, so it is called a corner bar. Such a design of bar counter can not only wisely use corner space, but also bring a bright spot to monotonous kitchen, and at same time make up for some defects in spatial pattern. The layout of corner bar allows relatives and friends to sit at table, which is not only convenient for conversation, but also makes interior space more compact.
▶2. Leaning against Swedish wall
It's positioned right along wall, we can select a relatively empty wall and then position bar there. The advantage of such a bar is that it does not take up too much space and can be seamlessly integrated with wall, which can make kitchen more cohesive. A wine cabinet can be designed not only on bar counter, but also on wall, while it takes up very little space. The wall bar is very suitable for small kitchens.
▶3. Built-in panel
This is a type of bar built into wall. Some home kitchens are a bit irregular and hard to organize. Zhuhai Decoration will make a small built-in bar here. In this way, space can be fully utilized, and bar and wall can be combined, which can subtly eliminate embarrassment caused by this misplaced space, and can also add a touch of sentimentality and fun to kitchen. The built-in bar is usually relatively small, suitable for a person to drink a few cups alone.
▶4. Section Bar
It is more common in open kitchens, it can be used not only as a bar counter, but also to divide living room space, decorate atmosphere in room, and act as a partition. The partition bar is more convenient and flexible in placement, and it can make kitchen colorful and uninterrupted. It can be placed in middle of dining room and kitchen, or part of closet can be extended to be used as a partition.
