Breakfast bars can serve many purposes for a busy family. They can make your Indianapolis kitchen more appealing and functional at the same time. A breakfast bar is an Indianapolis home improvement your whole family can enjoy. Let’s look at a few reasons why you might want to add one in your kitchen.
  • Breakfast. One of the most obvious reasons why you might want to add a breakfast bar for your Indianapolis kitchen remodeling project is it makes a convenient place to grab a bite on the way out the door in the morning. Allowing your kids to sit up higher at the bar, might make it easier to entice them to eat a healthier each morning before they rush off to school.
  • Office work.  The breakfast bar is also a handy spot to balance your checkbook, outline a work project or plan out your dinner menus and shopping list for the next week.
  • Homework time. You can have your children park at the breakfast bar, If homework time and dinner prep time happen to coincide, you’ll be available to supervise and answer questions, while still preparing for dinner.
  • After-school snacks. The breakfast bar makes a nice place for kids to eat a snack when they arrive home from school.
  • Keep the young ones corralled. The breakfast bar is a perfect place for you to keep your younger children corralled while you’re busy preparing dinner, doing the dishes or in the middle of a baking project in your Indianapolis home.
  • Craft Time. Perch your kids at the bar with a craft project. They’ll be busy right under your nose, while you complete the work you need to in your Indianapolis kitchen.
  • Late-night snacks. If you have teens, you know where you’ll find them in the evening. Teens are always hungry. It may just be that you can share a snack and some conversation with them in the evening.
There are a few options about where to place this simple kitchen remodeling project in Indianapolis. A kitchen island with a built-in breakfast bar is a popular way to incorporate a bar into your kitchen design scheme. You can have your Indianapolis general contractor to design one for you or you could purchase a ready-made island with a bar. Make a note to place the island far enough away from your cabinets and counters so that it does not interrupt the traffic flow in your kitchen. Another option is to open up a wall between your kitchen and an adjoining room. Perhaps a wall separates your kitchen and dining room. You could hire a Indianapolis home improvement specialist to cut a large window opening into the wall and then install a counter/island. If you’ve always wanted to open up that space between your kitchen and dining room, this would be a great way to do it!
