What‘s a table without chairs to pull up to it? Selecting the right seating is paramount to the overall style and function of a small kitchen. Again, you‘ll want to pair the seating with the floor plan while maintaining the "less is more" concept. For example, it‘s a smart idea to pass on bulky armchairs to line the dining table in favor of slender bistro chairs or barely-there Lucite chairs to eliminate visual clutter. Backless barstools are easily tucked under the kitchen island, while built-in or stand-alone benches conserve space by easing against a wall in the breakfast nook.
For many small kitchens, White says soft-closing, full-extension drawers are the way to go. If you have standard-height cabinets with unused wall space above, increasing the cabinets by six inches can improve storage capacity. Utilize cutlery dividers in drawers to organize cooking utensils and tools and keep them off counters. You can stash a small folding ladder behind a toe-kick panel, to help you reach items on high shelves or upper cabinets. White says no matter the storage options you choose, make sure to consider proper aisle space and traffic flow.
If you happen to have hardwood floors, one problem you may have is having the bottom of the chairs scratch the floors. This is due to people scooting the chair back and forth to get on and off the chairs. What you can do to prevent this from happening is to put some rubber or plastic material under the legs. Another thing you can do is get some swivel counter chairs. This way, when getting off the chair, all you have to do is turn it. These types of chairs will vary in price but you should expect to spend $100 or more for a set. However, if you want to save money, you can always buy some cheap plastic ones. Or better yet, try to find them at garage sales. They may look a little beaten down but you can always fix them up. Getting the right counter chairs are just one of the many different types of furniture decisions you will have to make.
