The ideology of the kitchen has seen much evolution and as the times have changed, it is no longer a small concealed workroom in the corner of the house. It has transformed into an open and welcoming space, often the first area you visit when entering a house. The emphasis on socialising is often at its strongest in the kitchen, just as much as the element of eating.
At the heart of this social setting is a little space where the day begins with a cup of tea: the breakfast bar.
Our Vary range now icnludes a fantastic tall counter table which is the perfect size to pop into a corner of the kitchen and can be a really effective use of space.
You may think that to incorporate this feature into your home might demand a custom design and extra work. However if you don't have an existing breakfast bar built in to your existing countertops then fear not. The counter does not need to be connected to anything – a freestanding high table can be the perfect alternative! Simply get one which fits comfortably in your kitchen space or corner with enough space to move around it, you immediately get a great place for a cup of tea and a croissant.
The concept of a breakfast counter is a creative way to sneak some extra space and funcitonality into your kitchen, even homes with a seperate dining room will find a breakfast counter can be hugely relevant. It can double up as a desk, a handy space for paperwork, and of course for an evening beverage.
Eye-catching stools can perk up any space and we highly reccomend going for a cheerful pop of colour.
