Breakfast Nook Adds Casual Dining Option to the Silverleaf Estate
The owners of this elegant estate wanted to make sure there was enough casual dining space for their large family, so designers created a breakfast nook that was physically connected to the kitchen. This space has cabinets for storing plates and flatware in a convenient location, as well as additional counter space to make food serving simpler.
Breakfast Bar Adds Casual Seating Option in Neutral Contemporary Kitchen
The addition of an island in this contemporary kitchen provided the home with a little versatility. Now, a breakfast bar offers a casual seating option for the family, creating a more functional home with a better entertaining space.
The kitchen’s inviting breakfast area in front of the center island features a large 72-inch wide wood dining table with unexpected seating options. A custom church pew, round ottomans that are easy to move around and Parson style dining chairs upholstered in a woven black plaid fabric give everyone a seat at the table.
White, Transitional Kitchen with Large, Multifunctional Island
The large island in this white, transitional kitchen is sleek and multifunctional, with cabinetry at one end and comfortable seating at the other. The flat top creates an ideal workspace for cooking, dining, homework or crafting, and a modern chandelier illuminates the task area. A slatted wood ceiling with beams brings a casual vibe to the elegant space.
The addition of the kitchen island helps to create a more functional space by providing counter space as well as a casual seating option for the family. Since the dining room is also connected to the kitchen, the additional seating could also serve as an extension to the existing dining area.
No only does the sleek kitchen island offer a ton of extra counter space, there is also space for several stools that give the family an additional dining option or act as overflow seating for the breakfast nook.
The island in this space gives the kitchen tons of additional functionality. Since the island is so large, it gives the homeowners plenty of extra counter space for meal prep and serving, while the prep sink makes clean up a breeze. There are also deep cabinets on two sides of the island that add storage, while a breakfast bar with seating for four gives the family additional dining options.
Wood-grain lower cabinets balance the bright white uppers and countertops in this casual, modern kitchen. Stylish Bertoia bar stools at the island and green Panton chairs in the dining area add color and glamor.
Clear, modern barstools add some casual seating at the breakfast bar in the kitchen of this St. Barts home. With the addition of the large kitchen island, the family now has the room to entertain and share meals in the kitchen, a less formal space, or in the formal dining room for a more elegant or larger gathering.
Large Island Adds Counter Space and Seating to Open Concept Kitchen
Designers wanted to ensure that the homeowners did not lose counter space when they opened up the space, so they added a large island in the middle of the room. They painted it gray to add contrast and color to the kitchen and added blue barstools to give the family a casual dining option.
Modern Kitchen Island Increases Kitchen's Functionality
The island in the kitchen adds counter space and an extra sink, as well as a breakfast bar with seating for four. This addition not only gives the homeowners a casual dining option, but also increases the kitchen's storage and overall functionality.
This light and bright open concept kitchen allows for easy transition between living spaces. A white stone kitchen island provides plenty of room for casual dining, while blue pendant lights illuminate the space. Exposed beam ceilings throughout add a finishing touch.
