Many kitchens are the heart of the family home. Parents cook while kids sit at kitchen dining room tables eating cookies and milk after school or teens try to solve extra hard math problems for homework. When working parents return from their hectic day, the kitchen makes a great spot to leave the day behind and just kick back for a snack or glass of wine before dinner.
To create a kitchen environment full of character means developing a space in the home that families can gather and build memories that go far beyond the hum drum of daily life. From the furniture to the flooring, planning kitchen areas for this purpose will add a whole new dimension to cooking, eating and entertaining in this space.
Finding solid, quality furniture pieces for kitchen nook areas might mean just simple round dining room tables and small buffet or side tables for holding dinnerware and glasses. There needs to be just enough furniture for family members while allowing enough room to leave the area feeling spacious.
Choosing colors for the walls and fabrics to create warmth and vibrancy is essential to creating an inviting space. Dark colors will add drama while light colors can add brightness. Complementary shades on fabrics for drapes, lampshades, chair cushions, table cloths and runners will give a consistency to the design. Painting the walls can add interest and color to further enhance and bring out accent colors used in fabrics and tableware.
