Create Areas to Hang Out
A kitchen is not only a place for cooking, dining and cleaning; it’s the best place for hanging out with family and friends. It’s where people can be themselves.
For this reason, I like creating a comfortable sitting area, which I call “low breakfast.” This area consists of a table approximately 27 inches high surrounded by comfortable, soft furniture-style seating rather than traditional dining chairs. It’s a great idea for empty-nesters who don’t want to sit around a big breakfast table most of the time.
