Kitchen islands are a common feature homeowners wish to incorporate into their kitchen remodel projects. The open floor plan where the kitchen is opened up to the major living area (either the living room or family room) is often one of the primary goals of the project. Often times a wall is removed and a kitchen island is integrated into the great room area. There are several design options when it comes to kit incorporating an eating or bar function into the overall design. There are basically 3 approaches to a kitchen island with a sitting area, the one we will explore in this article is the island with bar top:

The normal countertop height of the lower cabinets, containing the island is 36". One approach is to install a raised bar area along the living area length of the island. The standard bar height is 42" , making it 6" above the level of the island countertop. Seating required standard bar stools with a seating height of 30". Minimum bar overhang is 12".

There are a couple of benefits of this approach. One is that because the bar is higher than the counter work area, the kitchen clutter is visually shielded from the living area. A second advantage is that bar seating requires the least floor area of any of the seating options.

The addition of an elevated bar top to a kitchen island adds more function and an added degree of visual interest. Often the bar surface can be a different material than island work surface. For example, the island could be granite and the bar top hardwood ‐ a stunning combination.
