While many people dream of a huge kitchen, those who live in the city or smaller homes don’t always have that luxury. While small kitchens are known for their lack of counter space and seating, there are ways to enjoy eating your meals in the kitchen rather than in the living room. Continue reading for a few tips on how to transform your small room into an eat-in kitchen.
While it may be impractical- or impossible- to fit a full table and chairs in your kitchen, consider incorporating bench seating to save room. For rooms with very limited space, tuck a set of benches into a corner with a small table. Keep in mind that you only need a table that fits the number of people in your home, and you can store the benches under the table to save floor space. Many benches are designed with built-in storage- another major bonus for those with small kitchens.
A high top table is also a good choice for an eat-in kitchen, as they are slim and don’t take up much room. While the table may not work for group dinners or families with young kids, it is a good option for those living on their own or with a roommate/significant other. Barstool seating is also easy to slide under the high top table to take up as little room as possible.
If your small kitchen is fortunate enough to have some extra countertops, turn that area into your own breakfast bar! You have to get creative when you don’t have much room to work with, but it is worth it to have a dedicated space to drink your morning coffee and enjoy breakfast. Simply add a few stools that can be put away or hidden under the countertop to enjoy eating in the kitchen without taking up space with a table.
If you like the look of a wall mounted bar top you see at restaurants, try to bring that idea to your own home! With the right materials, such as a beautiful slab of wood, a wall mounted countertop can look beautiful and add an interesting design to any kitchen. It adds the perfect amount of dining space for one or two people for a functional eat-in kitchen.
