Bar height kitchen table – If you have a small kitchen, instead of adding a large dining table, you can build a bar table that can function as an eating table. A bar table can also be placed in a corner of a family room for entertaining guests. With a little elbow grease, some household tools and a few pieces of wood, you can complete this project in less than a week for those with basic carpentry skills, or at least a few days for those with advanced carpentry skills.
Find the place in your home where you will place your bar height kitchen table. Take into account the shape of the room and the placement of the bars, it will be placed in a corner or placed up against the wall. Also take into account the number of bar stools you want to add space for people sitting and standing around it.
Measure the area of the location you chose. From this you will base the size of a bar that you will build. You want it to be so in proportion to the size of the room. For an average size room, you can build a 6-foot-long bar table; for a smaller room to build a bar that is four meters long; for a larger room that you can build an 8-foot-long bar height kitchen table. Draw a design of a bar you plan to build, or download available bar plans from the Internet. If you want a simple design with a bar top and four legs, you can sketch a blueprint-like photo or image on this step.
