I was wondering what sort of height you guys think a breakfast bar should be? I know you work in inches so that's fine as I can convert to metric. Would the same height as the worktop be fine? We haven't got our bar stools yet and were working on the worktop height but I don't want to find that we can't comfortably get our knees underneath, when it's perfectly feasible to raise it a little - it's separate to the rest of the units.

We put our bar at 44 inches. That seems to work well for my wife and I. Also works great with the Ikea stools:

The standard bar height is 42" (107cm) , standard countertop height is 36" (91cm) - the various IKEA stools are made accordingly.
