Kitchen table placement - suggestions??
We're working on the layout for our remodel, and I'm currently wondering about the placement for our kitchen table. We have a lot of walkways through the area- door to laundry room/garage, opening to family room, opening to dining room, door to basement stairs, and back door to patio. Plopped into the middle of this is space for a round table. Is this crazy? Here's the layout from the original kitchen, with my notes about locations:
And here are a few photos, with a temporary table in place.
Looking towards family room:
Looking towards kitchen area (dark chairs are about where the island would be):
As an alternative, I'm wondering if we should move the table area toward the angled wall, and have more of a banquette there - although I know that there are pros & cons of that possibility. Here's the angled wall, which would possibly move the table away from some of the traffic patterns:
Any suggestions? Thanks!
