Help on Penisula and breakfast bar ( Pics)

12 years ago

I am coming down to the wire on a design and need some help. I am running out of room in the remodel and need to know if I am cutting things too tight. My concerns are the penisula depth, the breakfast bar depth, and the window over the bar.

In the 1st photo you will see that I have a 12" granite overhang but the edge of the overhang is 14.5" from the edge of the 8 foot sliding glass door. It should not be an issue as the door opens almost 4 feet so even if somebody big is sitting at the bar they could get around them in or out. I would love to make the penisula depth an other inch or two deeper but that would push the edge of the granite to 12.5" from the edge of the sliding glass door. Too close?

The 2nd photo shows a 10" overhang which is too small, I am 6' 3".

The window over the bar is 42" wide by 30" tall. This gives me 6" of clearance from the bottom of the window to the top of the raised breakfast bar.

any input would be helpful.
