Are you deciding whether to invest in a kitchen table or a kitchen island that can function as a bar? It's time to take a seat at the bar. With a change in lifestyles, many people find that they're using kitchen tables less and less.
One of the reasons for this is the social benefit of a bar. Each person is closer to one another and feels more casual than when sitting down. A kitchen bar creates a more inviting atmosphere where people can gather and the person/people preparing the meal can be a part of the conversation as they finish up.
Open concept is becoming a more popular design ideology. Going with a kitchen bar rather than kitchen table fits right in. You'll save so much space without a table and feel more freedom for you and your guests to move around.
In most cases, the surface of the kitchen island will make for easier cleanup than a kitchen table. Your counter surface might be granite, whereas your table is wood.
Another bonus is your proximity to the counter space and kitchen when sitting at the kitchen bar. You most likely have everything you need either within reach or only a couple of steps away.
And last but certainly not least, you'll find that the kitchen bar is multifunctional. It's a place where you can cook, eat, socialize, snack, and do work and feel like it's a prefectly casual and acceptable place to do so.
