The Kitchen Meals Area
With the kitchen being the “heart of the home” and a lot of layouts now set up as open plan living spaces, the separate dining rooms we used to are very uncommon (and are being turned into butler’s pantries!). This means that we now eat our meals in or around the kitchen. So, what are some ways we can create clever, practical and space efficient meal areas that perfectly suit our kitchens and lifestyles?
A common misconception is that we need to have a conventional dining table. This isn’t always the case. While it’s certainly the easiest option, it might not be the smartest use of space or what looks the best either. Consider built in booth seating against a wall or even extending the bench area into a breakfast bar type meals area.
