The L shape bar provides work station on one side, and the other side can be used as an overhang of dining and chairs or stools. Extension of the counter tops may be used as the smaller side of the L shape bar. However, ensure that there no cabinets on the top of the countertop to block the view.

However, the base cabinets of both the sections can be easily used to store miscellaneous things.
