Are bar height counters no longer in vogue in kitchens?
May 7, 2014 in Design Dilemma
I'm buying a "semi-custom" home, ie. I get to select finishes and have the option to make minor structural changes. The kitchen and family room are adjacent (really a great room) and a large island separates the kitchen from the living area. I was thinking about taking some of the counter from the island (it's plenty big enough to do this) and creating a second taller (bar height) counter to visually separate the kitchen and living area, and to "hide" the kitchen sink (the sink is in the island). The builder and sales person said bar height counters are passé. Your thoughts? My images are photoshopped versions of the model home.
