Unique Seating Ideas For Your Kitchen

The kitchen is one area of the home where family and friends love to gather and enjoy exciting conversations as they enjoy their meals. Whether your kitchen is large or small, it is important to have the right amounts and types of seating options to keep everyone comfortable. As you assess your current kitchen arrangements consider how these seating ideas for your kitchen can enhance your current decorating scheme.

Explore Window Seating Options

Kitchens that have low windows near the dining area have the perfect set up for window seats. Since window seats invite people to curl up with a lovely book or just enjoy the view, these seats are an attractive option that opens up ideas for ways to interact in your dining area. Ideally, kitchen seats should have a cushion, but people have also successfully put in flat, bench seats along the window with excellent results.

Use Stools Near Islands and Counters

Stools are one of the most versatile types of kitchen seating because you can move them around as they are needed. They can also be stored easily, which makes them perfect for temporary seating when you are hosting a large event. When choosing stools, make sure that you get the ones that are an appropriate height for your counter or table. It is also important to choose sturdy, high-quality stools so that you can avoid wobbling.

Consider Adding a Bench Seat

A bench seat is a great option when you have smaller children in your family, and they can be found in short two-person lengths or longer ones to fit bigger kitchens. These also lend an authentic touch to a rustic kitchen decorating scheme.

Carefully planning the seating in your kitchen gives you more options for keeping everyone comfortable. As you pick out your chairs, benches and stools, make sure that they are washable and comfortable enough that your guests will want to linger.
