Whenever we have guests at meal-time or while I am cooking my back always has to be to people. It's hard to cook and talk at the same time. Do you have an open bar in your kitchen? Here are a few examples of open bars in small kitchens from this year's Small Cool contest. There are many advantages of open bars in small kitchens. They give a more open look and spacious feel, letting the kitchen be part of the living space, and not chopping it up. They also can be built-in places to eat, so you don't need to bring in a dining table. But they also can mean less storage, with no upper cabinets. Do you have an open kitchen with a kitchen bar where guests can sit and chat with you while you cook? Do you like it? Do you wish you could close off your kitchen a little more?
