4 Eat-In Kitchen Ideas

4 Eat-In Kitchen Ideas

We love eat-in kitchens and this is one of our favorites! You can create a cozy eat-in kitchen like this one with these four eat-in kitchen design tips

Create Comfy Seating
The kitchen is one of the rooms that we spend the most time in so comfortable seating is a must. For the eat-in kitchen above, we created a comfy corner banquette using upholstered benches. Kitchen banquettes are becoming hugely popular because they provide the comfort of restaurant seating and they’re a great space saver! Add a group of throw pillows to make your kitchen banquette extra comfy.

Make the Lighting Inviting
To create a cozy atmosphere at the table add one or two pendant lights. We are naturally drawn toward light. Pendant lights concentrate the light on the table where it’s needed for eating or other table top tasks. They also create a lower “ceiling” effect which will make your dining area feel more intimate.

Soften Sound
Kitchens are full of hard surfaces, which reflect a lot of sound. Add an area rug below your table to reduce sound. The area rug will help define the dining section of your eat-in kitchen visually and make it a more pleasant place for conversation.

Use Color
Lastly, add color! Kitchens are a great place to have fun with color and your seating area is the perfect place to use it. In the kitchen above, we used warm red to compliment the neutral colors in the rest of the kitchen. Yellow, green, orange and blue are all great colors for kitchens. Whether you choose light or bright, incorporate your favorite color in your eat-in kitchen to make it a cozy and wonderful place to spend time.
