Small, round tables that have a single pedestal as a base or bar-height tables and chairs work best for small eat-in kitchens. Select bistro tables instead of armchairs. If your kitchen is too small for a table and chair, consider installing an island instead.
Bar-height furniture takes up vertical rather than horizontal space, maximizing usable space. Kitchen islands can function both as cooking and eating space for very small kitchens. L-shaped, built-in banquette seating with a built-in table also work well in small spaces, particular centered around bay windows. Storage space can be built in the banquette seating for storage of kitchen appliances.
