There are various options when looking at adding seating space in a kitchen. Choose an option that will suite your family and your needs in your kitchen.
Island seating offers various seating heights and can often give you needed additional worktop space. When opting for your seating to be bar stools it is ideal for you to have the counter top be the same height as your other counter top spaces. Additional work space is created when the seating is not in use and the surface would be easy to clean as it is only one surface.
Lowered seating offers an intimate social setting and either a nook or booth option can easily replace a dining room table in a room you never use.
Tables in the kitchen have been done for years and offer a cost effective way to add seating space to a large or small kitchen space. So when redesigning your open plan kitchen consider a breakfast nook or island seating to create a social space you can enjoy cooking in.
