Small eat-in space in kitchen - need inspiration please!
I heard back from one of the KD's this weekend that our eat-in space in our proposed layout may be too small. I was originally hoping to fit a 42" or 48" round table to seat four of us. However, the KD was concerned with walk around room - especially if we have the 12" d hutch on the one wall across from the sliding doors to the deck. Another idea she suggested was to put a banquette along the lower wall instead of the hutch with the back of the banquette facing the family room (to the right), but I am concerned about loosing that storage space.
Note on the right side of the drawing is the entry into the family room. The kitchen is completely open to the family room across the entire length; however, there is a very small step down into the family room. So, I cannot have a table and chairs that backs up too far - being cautious of the step down situation.
