Plenty of Seating

Maximize your space by creating different zones for different activities. For example, this kitchen has one island area that is used as a workspace and a second—complete with a seat for everyone in the family—that is dedicated exclusively to dining. What's more, a small sitting area with comfortable lounge chairs means kids can read or study in the kitchen while parents prepare dinner nearby.
