we have our main entrance that comes into the kitchen between our bar and the center island. The small dining area is to one side with a volcanic rock central fireplace behind the bar. I would like the bar as a bar, instead of a drop zone and overhang for shoe storage. Any ideas?

It is very common for small houses in Britain to have a little glassed-in porch to keep the rain away from the front door, which itself opens into the sitting room. The porch keeps wet boots, brollies and dripping raincoats outside.
