If your kitchen is a central gathering place in your home, include a comfortable and functional eating area as part of your custom kitchen remodel.
Take advantage of awkward corners, bay windows and half-walls with a breakfast nook. A table over bench seating with storage below creates a cozy place for a morning cup of coffee or an after-school homework spot.
For an eat-in kitchen, choose a table that provides ample seating without taking up a lot of space. It should blend in with your decor, rather than stand out. If you like to entertain, select one with extra leaves.
For a quick meal or a tasty snack, add an informal place to eat that takes little time and effort to set up. A breakfast counter of sleek stone or casual hardwood is a comfortable focal point for your custom remodeling project. It’s close to meal preparation areas, and provides countertop seating for two or more, depending on your needs. Extra storage can be built in underneath to maximize your space.
