Recipe Cards

I don’t use recipe cards now that I have a collection of my favorite recipes online, but if I did I would add these to my collection. I’m trying to think of a good reason to buy them!

Breakfast Bars & Kitchen Islands

by Christine Hart

Is your kitchen not quite the social hub you’d like it to be? If you love hosting dinner parties and house guests, you know the kitchen is the place to be for social gatherings at home. These days, many social nights at home – either a party or just a few informal guests – will often end up gravitating towards the kitchen where the food flows and there’s no home theater system to drown you out.

So many would-be hostesses are daydreaming about that highly coveted open concept kitchen bar with a set of kitchen counter bar stools. The first question is obvious; what will it take to make your kitchen dream come true? Will you be giving the room a facelift and adding new bar stools? Or do you need the island or bar first?

Striking Kitchen Counter Stools

If you’ve already got a kitchen island or breakfast bar counter, you’re extremely lucky. Having the ‘bones’ of what you want is a huge step. To kickstart your new look, consider a few bold pieces. Do you have room for extra tall bar stools? If not, don’t worry, there are many other dramatic styles. Leather bar stools in a black on black design can also have a visual impact. Choose wood or metal as suits your style and taste. And for a more economical version, consider vinyl faux leather seats as well.

Instant Kitchen Island – Just Assemble!

If you’re craving a kitchen bar with bar stools, but don’t have the framework, you may still be able to make it happen. Even if you don’t have a kitchen island or wall-adjacent bar, it’s doable if you’ve got room. You’ll be surprised at what a few quick changes can accomplish and how little space you’ll really need. Take a look at these island units below to get an idea of where to start.
