101 Kitchens with Breakfast Bars (Photos)

Contemporary kitchen with a breakfast bar.

Breakfast bars in today's kitchens are super popular. Check out this photo gallery of 100's of kitchens with island and peninsula breakfast bars.

Breakfast bars have exploded in kitchen design popularity simultaneously with the spectacular growth of kitchen islands.

It makes sense given most breakfast bars are situated along one and sometimes two sides of the island.

However, islands don’t have a monopoly on the breakfast bar.  You can find them along kitchen peninsulas as well.

Since the kitchen is often the central room of the home, it’s becoming more and more of a multi-purpose room that includes adjacent seating, in-kitchen dining (including cozy dining nooks) and now casual dining areas with the breakfast bar.

Breakfast bars are fantastic because it creates a community space, much like a tavern does.  I guess there’s something about sitting on bar stools that create a casual, fun and community environment.

Fortunately for you, if you’re interested in kitchen designs with a breakfast bar, our photo gallery features hundreds of such designs.  Enjoy.
