Need an idea for incorporating kitchen with living room by adding a bar
February 22, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I have a kitchen space with den and fireplace where everyone gathers, on the other side is a nice open formal living area I am going to make more inviting/casual to encourage flow into the room I want to knock out a partial wall between the rooms and add a bar, the living room also looks out onto pool. If you look at photos where the piano sits that is the area on the livingroom side, the cabinets are on the kitchen side. See area under stairs, I think this is a cool nook for a bar

My thought is that with the stairs tied into it, this is a load bearing wall. Call in a specialist.

I am also pretty certain that this is a load bearing wall. However, I am also pretty sure I saw a bar built into a space very similar to yours. Let me go look.

Here are some photos. All are from Houzz PHOTOS, with "bar" in the search box. I am sorry the photos do not enlarge on this post.
