Build in a bar areaAn informal way to get people chatting while you’re preparing food is to incorporate an island or peninsula. It can be a large central area or a small breakfast bar like this. As long as there’s enough worktop space to prop glasses, you’ve got yourself a sociable spot where guests can hover. For added comfort, invest in some bar stools. In this space, there’s only one perch, which is fine for an intimate evening with a friend. However, if you’re expecting a few guests, it’s best to move the stool out of the way to allow people to stand comfortably around the bar area.
