Kitchens are often referred to as the heart of the home because everyone comes together to eat, drink, and enjoy each other’s company.

In many kitchens, you will find a breakfast bar, and though breakfast is in the name they can be used for so much more. Whether you’re looking to design a customized breakfast bar nook or simply add bar stools to an area of your kitchen with extra counter space, breakfast bars are an excellent way to maximize your space. From brunch to appetizers to buffet-style meals, breakfast bars always have just what you’re looking for: Food!

Here are nine homes with breakfast bars that we know you’ll love. Get inspired to create your dream kitchen with these bar design ideas to bring to your own home:

This light-filled kitchen featuring stunning off-white countertops, a simple rock backsplash and mixed kitchen cabinets is perfect for enjoying your morning coffee and breakfast of choice. The expansive countertop extends only slightly over the edge of the island cabinets, making it convenient to simply add a set of stools to take advantage of the small space between the fridge and island bar.

Whether it’s for your morning meal or happy hour drinks and appetizers, this breakfast bar is exactly where you want to be. Gather with friends or simply enjoy the space all to yourself. The semi-circular countertop of this bar design allows for ample seating space. A chandelier is a stunning and effective choice of breakfast bar lighting if you have a large, open kitchen. This decorative element will make the space feel more warm, while also lighting up your entire bar.

We love that this kitchen has both a spacious island and a breakfast bar, so you can prep your food and still entertain guests without them feeling like they’re in the way. An L-shaped breakfast bar table is a great choice if you are looking to maximize seating in small spaces.

This gorgeous breakfast bar has plenty of space to eat, drink, and laugh. Plus, with its close proximity to the wine fridge, it’s perfect for hosting wine tastings! The hang down lights are another great idea for bar lighting, adding to the warmth of this crisp white space. The contrast of the stainless steel appliances allows the kitchen bar design to really stand out!
