No longer are eat-in kitchens seen only in traditional, cottage or country homes. Contemporary kitchens with space for dining can be both functional and stylish. This clean white kitchen fit for a chef provides the perfect background for a great looking dining area as well.
Wood floors enhance the beauty and stylish feel of the space. For a punch of color, a washable or spot cleanable area rug could be added under the table.
Often seen over the breakfast bar, a four-light pendant has been cleverly hung over the table. Beautiful alternative lighting would be a whimsical contemporary white chandelier or a single large colorful glass and metal pendant.
In this kitchen, a simple table of pale wood with clean lines is set with neutral place mats and pure white dinnerware—perfect choices in this contemporary environment. Dining chairs dressed up with stylish slipcovers add a touch of formality to the room. To add a bit of fun, substitute fabric in a geometric pattern, black and white stripe or large contemporary floral motif.
Fresh flowers, as seen in this room, colorful bowls and other decorative objects placed on top of kitchen cabinets, countertops or the work island can contribute to the visual appeal of the space.
With attention to detail, a little imaginative thinking and the addition of beautiful accessories, an eat-in kitchen can proudly be used for entertaining. Neither family nor guests will even notice the refrigerator as they enjoy the dining space created in the kitchen.
