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.
When it comes to flooring, consider slip resistance, ease of maintenance and porosity. Stone floors, which are somewhat porous, for instance, may need periodic resealing. If so, ask how often, and think about whether you want to deal with that process. Hardwood floors are beautiful, but be aware that they wear out faster by the fridge, stove and sink than other areas. Hard, natural stone works wonderfully, and the earthy look and feel of it is very popular.
