Elevated kitchen - Hi, we are thinking of doing an elevated kitchen as you have done here. I think it looks great! Was there any concern regarding serving food down steps? Thanks

The wood plank is actually irregularly shaped but it is approximately 12" wide by 7 ft long. The length that is appropriate for you depends on how many stools you want to have. But the with should be at least 11" to have cups and small plates. BTW the wood plank is Pecan salvaged from old growth trees cut down to build a new condo tower in Austin.

Thanks for the response. I'll be on the lookout for salvaged pecan. Every time I drive down Lamar I see another condo tower being built.

Nope! Not a chalkboard just a low maintenance solution that we thought would look good...

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lily Gahagan added this to Grown-Up Ideas for Chalkboard Paint
Above the bar, guests can doodle while you're busy cooking.
Natalie Myers added this to Up and Away: Gravity-Defying Furniture
I love this wraparound entry console that maximizes the floor area, enlivens an otherwise dead corner, and expresses the homeowners' tastes and style. A custom built-in element that adds so much to the quality of space. Again, you see the floating element repeated in the bar area for consistency in the interior design of the home.
John Hill added this to Level Changes: Defining Spaces
Here four steps link the kitchen above to the open living-dining space below. A peninsula with bar stools melds these two realms. The elevated kitchen enables one to oversee the living space from a lofty position.
Mitchell Parker added this to Get More From Your Kitchen Island
Ease a Level ChangeMany homes have a step or two from the kitchen to a living area, typically with a railing of some sort. Why not create a casual dining area as a buffer between the two instead, utilizing some great cabinetry?More: How to Design a Kitchen Island
