Overhang For Bar Height Kitchen Peninsula Counter

Milo Pompeii
January 11, 2019

Large area with 15’ cathedral ceilings. Peninsula between kitchen and entranceway/living room and dining room in area also.

Sister in law has 15”-16” bar height counter and says she wished she would have added a couple inches. We’re thinking 20” to have plenty of room for a plate, bread dish, wine glass, etc. when using it for overflow seating. (Or when you have a small group over and private chef prepare meals...-seldom, but a treat!)

So, what is the thinking for a generous overhang for a bar height counter?

    Do you mean a counter-height peninsula with a raised bar? I think 20" will be very generous for a raised bar, but how will it be supported?

    It’s a raised bar, likely the standard 42”. The GC said they would have to add support. There is plenty of room. Wife and I will eat dinner there at night, which is why we are adding a TV above the fridge. Will also be used a lot for parties and get-togethers. The peninsula will go just in front (out of picture) of the cabinets you see at the very bottom of the picture. There will be a sink in that cabinet set.

    TV goes just above the Subzero fridge large cutout on left. MUA and HVAC vent to left of TV. Fridge is French Door, flush install, hence the 7” border on left part of frame to allow for full articulation of the Left door. 30” Wolf M-series bottom right, Wolf CSO above (incorrectly framed at the moment).
