How to achieve that perfect breakfast bar

Everyone loves having a space that they are proud of in the home. Of course, it's not always possible to make your entire house look fit for an interiors magazine. However, achieving your dream look with one room or area is definitely do-able and something we want to help you with. Today, we're going to focus specifically on the breakfast bar! Taking inspiration from Pinterest, home blogs and our own shop, we'll give you lots of little ideas to make your breakfast bar really something to be envied.


Obviously, it's up to you how much 'stuff' you want to dress your breakfast bar up with. There are plenty of ways you can jazz up your counter to make it feel more homely or stylish. However, some people prefer very minimal homes and if this is the case, we have some suggestions for you. Firstly you could use a magazine rack or holder to store away all your morning newspapers or documents that often get read over a coffee. This way, there will be no scattered piles of paper to mess up your aesthetic! However, if you prefer a more lived-in look, then we recommend using magazines as a decoration. Interiors publications and fashion or cooking magazines can really make a kitchen feel more stylish and put-together.

Artwork is always a great way to add an extra dimension to any room in the house. But of course, if you don't want to clutter up your breakfast bar with photo frames or sculptures, try taking the decor to the wall. You could hang up some of your favourite art or photographs on the wall nearest to the breakfast bar. This will make the area feel homely but not too busy.

You could also introduce houseplants to your countertop as these will bring some life into the room. Our favourite indoor plants at the moment are cacti, banana plants and the Sansevieria (also known as mother-in-law's tongue!). However, you can really push the boat out and get pretty creative when it comes to house plants. For example, check out this cool idea from it's a coffee plant in a coffee-scented pot! Perfect for those early weekday mornings... The ScentStation potted plant is just £9.95 and available here. Decorating your breakfast bar will really give you a talking point when guests come round and make the room feel a lot more light, airy and in touch with nature.

Breakfast bar stools

Of course, you could have all of the pretty accessories in the world but there is one thing you really need. And that's breakfast bar stools! These seats are a crucial element to any countertop where you'll be consuming cornflakes and croissants. Luckily, we have a huge range of breakfast bar stools here at Lakeland Furniture and you can browse them all here. Below are just a few examples of some of our favourites:

 Pinterest inspiration

As always, we believe some of the best inspiration for anything home-related can come from Pinterest.
