You can also maximize space by installing cabinets under the bar, and getting other features like built-in racks for spices, wine, and even paper towels.  This added storage can really help in saving you a lot of space, thus creating a kitchen where you can freely move around in.

Also, an exciting part is, choosing what type of bar will complement the whole mood and design of the kitchen.  Aside from it being very functional, you can also use it to add aesthetic points to your room, where it can further beautify your kitchen.
