Kitchen / July 2, 2018 /
The bar area of a restaurant is where people go to socialize with others and relax. There is no reason you can not create the same environment in your home kitchen. Add bar style seating around the kitchen island or make room for a couple of stools to get this look. I bet you will soon find this area becomes a favorite spot in your home for gathering and spending time with your family and guests.
Add bar stools to your kitchen island, put a comfy chair in the corner or do a little demolition to get an open floor plan. Some simple additions like an island, a rolling workstation or a few extra cutting boards also make it easier for kids or friends to socialize while lending a hand. Making your kitchen a social workspace keeps you from feeling cut off from family or guests. This also makes it easier to commit to cooking fresh, healthy choices that take a little more prep instead of falling back on just add water options so you can eke out a few more minutes of socializing.
