What's wrong with this kitchen desk?
With wireless laptops and cell phones and all that, do people still put in built-in kitchen desks in the kitchen or is it just obsolete and a waste of space? It seems like you could do all that work that you'd do on a dedicated kitchen desk on the kitchen table instead.
I'm asking because I have a kitchen desk for a rental, and I would have thought that it'd be the focal point of the kitchen because you have an ocean view from that desk.
Instead, whenever I've had to go inside that kitchen, it's obvious nobody ever uses it as a desk. I'll see them putting a big bag of dog food on top of the kitchen desk even though no pets are allowed.
I don't know if the problem is that nobody uses kitchen desks, or that this was a bad kitchen desk so that's why it doesn't get used.
If its the latter, what are the details that separate a useful, good kitchen desk from a bad kitchen desk?
Right now, I'm remodeling another kitchen which had a kitchen desk outside the kitchen triangle. Its on the wall opposite the windows and sink, in between the rest of the cabinetry and the entrance for the kitchen.
I don't know if I should just put in another kitchen desk at that same spot because it seems kind of redundant- there's already a kitchen table nearby the spot for the kitchen desk. and there's a 4th bedroom downstairs that could serve as a real office. Pus, it'd seem like a chair for a desk would squeeze the pathway since its next to the entrance.
But, am I stuck with putting a desk in that space cause the phone jacks, electrical outlets, etc.. are located above and below the desk?
If I don't need to put in another kitchen desk, what should I do with that space instead?
