Storage under breakfast bar

Storage under breakfast bar

Hi All, We have a breakfast bar in our kitchen and we dont utilize it at all. We want to use that space to create some storage for kitchen. How do we proceed? The cabinets or shelves will have to be made somewhere. But, I would be able to assemble them myself. Please advise. IMG20181013104952.jpg

Hello @naren1023 can you please tell me how long is that breakfast bar? Better yet can you give me measurements of that area you wish to use under the breakfast bar. Thanks!

Hi @naren1023
You might also want to consider sketching it up yourself
Try 3D Sketchup and 3D BricsCAD Shape, and please post back for planning tools

Cheers

Thanks @BIM_Engineer. I will do that. I tried it briefly and have not been able to do it. First time, I am using a software of that nature.

That looks like beautiful cabinetry. Are you sure you want to mess with it? I can understand the need for more storage (there's never enough!) but it seems the extra storage you would get would be minimal. Does the breakfast bar have cupboards on the other side? What is the material? Anywhere else in the kitchen that you could create more storage?

Thanks for the response @Isobel. We have cabinets on the other side but the dishwasher has taken up a lot of space. I initially did not want to trouble that space but at this point I really dont have too many options. Though the space would be mimimal, it will be what we want. I have not made any decision yet. :unhappy:

Hi All, After thinking long and hard about this, we decided not to go with this project at this time. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who responded to me. :smile:

I think the space under the bar designed for legs room when you are sitting there on high chairs..
