Eat-In Kitchen? Dining room? Take your pick...

(Picture features the Davenport transitional counter height table with slate inlay) Where does your family eat most of their meals? Do you use your dining room, breakfast room or eat-in kitchen? With families running in so many directions each day, many of us never step foot in our formal dining rooms, except for holidays and special occasions. Breakfast nooks or large eat-in kitchens are becoming the central hub of the house for family meals and gathering. reports that home sizes are decreasing and as this happens, kitchens are becoming more multipurpose. Builders are incorporating a home office and room for eating in the kitchen. More families are requesting open floor plans where larger kitchen spaces open into a great room.

Many of us have formal as well as informal dining spaces. Even if your house has a separate dining room, it is convenient and functional to have a more casual option for dining as well. A kitchen that allows for family and guests to eat and gather is a great option and an eat-in kitchen has a casual, friendly feel. Guests that are invited into your kitchen feel like they are a part of the family.

Here is a picture from of a beautifully designed eat-in kitchen. This large open kitchen has plenty of space for casual dining and preparing meals.
