What are the different seating options for family kitchens?

Seating in any family kitchen is essential. This provides space for all the household to interact, either while eating, preparing food, or while sharing the chores. From busy mornings to relaxing evenings, a family kitchen should be the heart of the home, and seating is key to making this a reality. So what are the different options for seating in a family kitchen? Well, there are several to consider, including:

  • Formal seating- formal seating in the form of a specific dining table and chairs is one way to add family seating to the kitchen. This can be designed to fit perfectly with any interior decor scheme, including contemporary and traditional kitchen design.
  • Casual seating- causal seating includes breakfast bars or kitchen island seating which can be perfect for sitting down to a family meal, enjoying a morning coffee or even completing homework, but wouldn’t be suitable for a more formal dining experience with friends or extended family. Casual seating is often more popular than formal seating, especially in homes with a separate dining room.
  • Seating booths- seating booths are becoming increasingly popular in kitchens of all styles and sizes. These can be corner seating, or standard booths that use long benches rather than separate seats, and this type of seating can be a good way to utilize otherwise wasted space.
