The kitchen is the heart of the home, a gathering place for your friends and family. You want it to be functional but also comfortable for people to spend time together. A key part of comfort is including a place for people to sit and relax. Here are a few different methods for incorporating seating into your cooking space.
Eat-at islands are a popular and timeless choice. These stand-alone counters include bar stool seating, and give your guests a chance to be right there for the action. Enjoy chatting with friends or helping with homework while cooking, baking, or cleaning up. If tall seating doesn’t work for your family or your space, a table extension to an island as a great compromise. Bench seating is a popular choice with this alternative.
Breakfast nooks are another popular option, with banquettes rising in popularity. Banquettes are built-in benches that are usually upholstered. These allow for more seating space but take up less room than a stand-alone sofa or chair. With a banquette, you also have the option of including cabinetry into its base. Extra storage and seating makes for an efficient addition to any kitchen.
When planning your next remodel, consider adding seating to your kitchen. Your guests will thank you! And when you’re ready for that redesign, let us know. We would love to make your kitchen dreams a reality!
