How much do you know about bar counter design in open kitchens?
The bar looks small and exquisite, but it actually hides many functions. In the living room, it can be used as a space partition, as a place for daily rest, and as a place for storage and storage. The partition bar is a design most commonly used in the living room. It cleverly divides the space, clarifies each functional area, and enriches the sense of spatial hierarchy. The bar counter and the open kitchen are a fashionable combination. The bar counter area extended from the kitchen is integrated with this space. It is an excellent place for daily dining, and it also allows the two spaces of the living room and the kitchen to form an orderly communication. But when we customize the bar, some of the following details need special attention.
The height of the bar table and chairs are divided into the following types:
Low bar: table height between 90CM-92CM, chair height between 60CM-65CM;
Normal bar counter: table height is between 100CM-105CM, chair height is between 70CM-75CM;
High bar: table height is between 115CM-120CM, chair height is between 83CM-85CM;
How to choose the size depends on your needs and space.
Countertop width: If you choose a bar counter where you sit side by side, the width of the countertop should be 40×120CM; if you choose a bar counter where you sit face to face, the width of the countertop should be 60×70CM. This is a normal size range. When designing, the size can be increased or decreased according to the size of the space and the number of users.
The material of the bar countertop is an important aspect that needs to be considered in the design. Common materials are stone and wood. Which material to choose depends on the overall style.
The first impression given by the stone material is that it is cold and full of light luxury, which will bring an unexpected sense of high-end to the space. The stone itself has natural texture, is translucent and shiny, and creates a different visual effect under the minimalist design. Its advantages are that it is hard and wear-resistant, has strong load-bearing capacity and is not easy to deform, but it is relatively brittle and easy to crack, and it is easy to breed bacteria.
The wooden material feels solid and warm, with clear texture and warm tones. When placed in the space, it looks simple and rustic. The natural warmth of wood can increase the beauty and tone of the space. The texture is warm and durable, but it has shortcomings such as being susceptible to moisture and damage.
Both materials have their own advantages and disadvantages, and they bring different experiences and effects to the space. However, no matter which material is chosen, it can bring unexpected surprises to the space.
A good bar design can drive participation and interaction in the space, and increase the level and beauty of the space. Friends who are interested in customizing a bar for the open kitchen at home are welcome to visit our website to view more cases, or contact us for an online quote.
