Replace the kitchen island for intimate dining.
There are a several choices that allow for in the kitchen dining, such as an island with raised bar, breakfast bar or a lower table attached to island. Toss those ideas out! Forget breakfast rooms and built-in banquettes! Nothing looks more inviting than placing a table and chairs front and center. Decor style doesn’t matter, as shown in these examples. They all look great. When more prep space is needed, it’s as easy a moving a chair or two until it’s dinnertime. Serving meals in the kitchen may sound informal, in reality it’s anything but.
