Small kitchens can be cozy and friendly spaces. But they can also be impractical. Especially for seating arrangements. Whether you just want to grab a quick coffee in the morning, or have space for children to do their homework, seating in any kitchen is a useful and practical option. But how can you add seating to a small kitchen space? Well, here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen design specialists. And this is our guide to help you add innovative seating to small kitchens.
Add innovative seating to small kitchens
Fitting additional seating into a small kitchen can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be impossible. There are several things you can do with your limited space, including:
- Creating a type of breakfast bar- by removing two of the cabinets underneath your worktop, or leaving an empty space, you can create a breakfast bar built into your kitchen. This means you can choose stools to fit with your decor and design style and leave these underneath your work surface at all times, ready to be pulled out. However, you are unlikely to create enough space for more than two people, and you will lose out on vital kitchen storage.
- Removable bench- another way to create seating space is to use a removable bench. Kitchens with counter-tops designed to make use of a removable bench are becoming more commonplace. The bench can easily be stood to the side of your kitchen when not in use, and then brought out when needed. This versatile seating arrangement requires seats that are equally versatile, so why not use folding stools. Again, these can be brought out when necessary and easily slide away into a corner.
