Like every detail in your cooking space, small kitchen furniture must be streamlined to fit the tight confines of the room. Maximize a minimal floor plan with seating and tables that suit your favorite room in the house without overwhelming it. The heart of every kitchen is the family table. Even in cramped quarters, the dining table, in any of its many forms, serves as a focal point. If you have an eat-in kitchen layout that can accommodate a traditional table, then be sure to pull out the measuring tape before choosing a table style. To prevent a boxed-in feeling, allow at least a 7-foot clearance for a table (3-1/2 feet on either side).
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.
Round tables are ideal for small kitchen spaces because they promote conversation and can squeeze in a few more guests than a rectangular model. When it comes to making this decision, think of a pared-down silhouette such as a single pedestal base, like the mod tulip table. A built-in bench also needs a table to complete a cozy breakfast nook, so select a version with a small footprint rather than sturdy, stocky pieces. On the other hand, tables with straight edges and removable leaves can be shortened and eased against a wall for more space. Whatever the style, attaching casters to your table offers optimal versatility. Slide it alongside a built-in kitchen island to serve as a makeshift peninsula or whisk it to another room to allow for a free-flowing kitchen floor plan.
In the kitchen, there‘s a primary rule: tools that work together should live together. Carry out this rule by creating activity centers in the kitchen: centralized places that group and organize tools needed for routine kitchen activities. Each center will be organized according to an activity focus, be assigned a designated space and encompass storage for tools needed for that particular activity.
