Eat-in kitchens are very convenient, as you don’t have to continuously go back and forth from the kitchen to the dining area for food, dishes, and drinks. Having an eat-in space allows you to do meal preparation, eating, and clean up all in one room! It’s always great for creating a central area of the home for your family to gather. Continue reading for four design ideas to incorporate in your eat-in kitchen!
Eat-in kitchens are often more casual and laid-back, and comfortable seating is a must. You will likely be spending most nights at the table with your family, and the area also works for entertaining guests. Make sure everyone feels comfy by adding an upholstered bench with soft throw pillows on the wall-side of the table. Not only does the bench provide a comfortable seating option, but it also adds a unique design element and saves a lot of space in the room.
As we know, lighting makes a significant difference to the overall atmosphere of a room. To create a cozy, eat-in area, install pendant lighting over the kitchen table and countertops. It’s important that the table and counters are well-lit to be able to see while you eat and prepare meals. Also, hanging pendants make the ceiling feel a little lower and makes the room feel more intimate.
Most kitchens do not have rugs, but an area rug under the table in your eat-in kitchen makes for a great design element. The area rug not only brings a pop of color or pattern to the room, but it also helps to reduce sound and add even more comfort to the dining area.
Speaking of adding color to the room, don’t be afraid to go bold with your eat-in kitchen! The rug, bench, and pillows are perfect for adding small pops of color to enhance the overall design and style of the room. Most kitchens are neutral and full of white, grey, or black appliances and cabinets, so the eat-in area is the perfect place to show off your personality and style.
