Kitchen Seating Ideas
Planning to remodel your kitchen? Tired of your traditional table and interested in updating your seating? There are plenty of kitchen seating options—you aren’t limited to a table. Whether to better fit your informal and on-the-go lifestyle, accommodate a growing family, or simply enhance the aesthetic of your kitchen, different seating can make a significant difference!
Types of Kitchen Seating
In addition to tables, there are a few different seating options you can consider for your new kitchen design:
- Banquettes and breakfast nooks
- Island bars
- Multifunctional seating
Breakfast nooks have become quite popular over recent years and can be found in many kitchens today. Banquette seating is often used for breakfast nooks—it can help save space in small kitchens, increase storage, provide a lot of room, and help improve the look of an outdated kitchen. Breakfast nooks are often located by windows and can be charming and cozy, the perfect gathering place for family meals or helping the kids with homework.
Do you want to include a kitchen island in your new space? If so, you can consider a breakfast bar! This type of kitchen seating is great for couples or smaller families who don’t often sit down for large meals. Breakfast island bars complement more on-the-go lifestyles.
Multifunctional kitchen seating is also an option—and it usually involves an island. Built-in island bench seating can be used to create a cozy eating area. Two-tier kitchen islands can serve as both a cooking/food prep area and a place to eat. There are various ways to use multifunctional kitchen seating.
What to Consider for Kitchen Seating
In addition to thinking about your lifestyle and how you mainly use your kitchen, also think about what kind of style you want your new kitchen to be. This can help you more easily select chairs, upholstery for banquette seating, etc. The seating can help complement the overall look of the kitchen and lend authenticity to period style spaces or modern ones.
