Choosing the right seating for your kitchen can be a real challenge. Depending on the size of your kitchen, there are a number of different seating options available, ranging from full dining tables to smaller breakfast bars. Corner seating is another popular option, but what are the advantages of corner seating in the kitchen? And why should you consider this? Well, here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen design experts. And this is our guide to everything you should know about corner kitchen seating.

What are the advantages of corner seating in the kitchen?

There are many advantages to using corner seating in the kitchen. These advantages include:

  • Making use of otherwise wasted space- corners in kitchens are often the only space that isn’t in use, especially in large or medium sized kitchens. As a result, positioning your dining or seating space here can create a clear, well defined seating area, that does not intrude on the general use of the kitchen space.
  • Taking up less space- by using corner seating, you can install a seating space that takes up much less of your floor space than other types of kitchen seating. This is because one of the walls will act as seating, so the table area can be tucked against this, instead of protruding into the kitchen floor space. Booth seating and L shaped seating can be particularly effective for this.
  • Contemporary or traditional- corner seating is often thought of as very contemporary, but the style can really suit and complement any type of kitchen design, including traditional and farmhouse kitchens too.
  • Galley kitchens- corner seating is one of the few seating choices for long and narrow galley kitchens. This could involve removing some lower cabinets to make space, but it will leave you with a built in seating area that does not reduce the central floor space, unlike breakfast bar stools.
