Easy and Eclectic
Function is obviously key in an eat-in kitchen, but that doesn’t mean you need to forgo style. Try mixing café-style chairs with a wood dining table for a classic look. Then add accessories like a dhurrie runner or a neutral flat-weave along with fun framed artwork, which will give the space added personality and an eclectic but pulled-together look.
Convenient and Charming
For a spacious family kitchen, we like the idea of going big on communal-style dining with a large farmhouse-style table. It turns the room into a great gathering spot and also provides an extra surface for food prep as well as a place for kids to do their homework. A long bench makes a charming alternative to dining chairs, and sculptural lighting in the form of a pendant will add a touch of intrigue.
Simple and Sleek
Creating a pretty and practical dining spot in the kitchen can be as easy as pulling up a few modern barstools next to an island or a counter. The beauty of barstools is that they’re portable, which makes them especially convenient in a high-traffic spot like the kitchen. To bring in some extra polish, consider switching in a pair of sleek pendant lights.
