It is essential to plan the location of the furniture. In this 6.5 m² kitchen, the openings conditioned a distribution on two fronts. As it was necessary to allocate all possible storage space, the bar was designed as a flown table. It is an extension of the countertop, which protrudes 60 cm between the chest of drawers and the closet. Underneath, the space was used with a shelf to store the trays.6.5 m²: Project plan 14.08 m²: Distribution for an elongated plant.
Place the furniture is two fronts in the most advisable, but the kitchen must be at least 2.20 m wide to flow smoothly. Like this: on the right were the cabinets, appliances and, at the end, a bar with little depth and the ideal height to fit under two chairs without hindering the passage. Opposite was the plate and the water zone.14.08 m²: Project plan. 13.10 m²: Multifunction Island
This spacious element, which houses a cot for meals, the sink and the hob, was designed with a setback in the cabinets. The map shows that the rest of the cabinets are concentrated on another wall and that the passage areas were respected.13.10 m²: Project plan. 8.80 m²: Kitchen and living room in the same space.
The kitchen furniture is partially hidden behind a high bar which, in addition to fulfilling its logical function for fast foods and breakfasts, is a two-sided piece of furniture. On the kitchen side, it has shelves and a lot of storage capacity.8.80 m²: Project plan 9.90 m²: A U-shaped peninsula.
The kitchen is distributed in a U-shape, open to the dining room. The bar is a continuation of the countertop, but under it no low cabinets were installed, there is a free space to sit on the stools comfortably. The bar has been finished off with a vertical side, like that of one of the furniture.9.90 m²: Project plan 12 m² + dining room: The bar marks the division
Between the work area and the dining room is this breakfast and fast food area. Made of wood, to provide a touch of warmth to white and steel, it is taller than the countertop and has an L-shaped design, with wall support. As the plan shows, double the depth of the countertop, but still, leave enough space to circulate between the two zones.12 m² + dining room: Project plan 8.40 m²: Kitchen open to the living room.
In this distribution, the longest wall of its two parallel fronts was finished off with a breakfast bar. The countertop and the bar are made of Silestone, a very malleable synthetic material, which adapts to setbacks and irregularities of the wall, as in this case. For these bars, it is recommended that the countertop be 5 cm thick.8.40 m²: Project plan 7.2 m²: The bar rests on the last piece of furniture in the kitchen.
And leave enough space for the passage zone. This bar surprises its length and visual weight, but also that it is unchecked from the white kitchen furniture and seawater countertop. The reason is that the bar is the only dining room in the house, and therefore, the owners wanted it to be wide and made of a warm material, such as wood.7.2 m²: Project plan 9 m²: A square kitchen
For this case, a U-distribution makes the space profitable. The area of 9 m² was organized on three fronts: an island that integrates the plate and a breakfast bar were attached to the longest wall; the sink was placed under the window and on the other front floor-to-ceiling cabinets and other appliances were placed.9 m²: Project plan 25.42 m²: A bar on a peninsula
This option allows to delimit the work area when the kitchen shares space with other environments, as with this one, of 25 m². The bar facilitated a more functional distribution, since, despite its breadth, the kitchen presented difficulties, since it has two access doors, a dining room attached to the wall and a laundry area.25.42 m²: Project plan 13.34 m²: Extend the countertop.
It is a way to get a bar, but keep in mind that a person needs a gap of at least 50 cm to eat comfortably. In this kitchen, about 13 m², which includes an iron room, the furniture was distributed on two parallel fronts. The bar was created in the one on the left, as an extension of the countertop, on which two cabinets rest. These have little bottom and the front of the blind so that its opening does not prevent the use of the bar.13.34 m²: Project plan 9.15 m²: A small bar hide the radiator
In this case, the kitchen had more than 9 m² and a regular floor plan that could have allowed a distribution of G-shaped furniture, with abundant storage space. However, the presence of the glass panel and the radiator prevented taking advantage of the last wall with more cabinets. A bar with little background made this area profitable.9.15 m²: Project plan
