Kitchens in 1930s houses are often small (3m x 2.5m). As a result, you have little work surface. To create more worktop, we created a simple yet sleek kitchen bar. Cozy when you are cooking and functional as a worktop or for a drink around the kitchen.

Extend the kitchen with a kitchen bar

We had two boards cut to size (in miter). We sawed the height difference with a saw so that it is nice and straight. A jigsaw gives a less beautiful and often less straight cut. Both planks attached to each other, using masking tape to make both mitered sides perfectly fitting (see also YouTube video how to do this easily). Then predrill and screw. Countersunk screws and filled with a little wood filler. Finally finished with ebony stain. Wall mounted with an aluminum corner profile.

The dimensions of the project

The kitchen worktop is 50.0 cm deep, 90.0 cm long and 100.0 cm high. Take into account any height difference of the kitchen and room chairman when determining the height.
