If you are the lucky owner of an eat-in kitchen, consider yourself blessed. A breakfast area is a perfect spot for family gatherings at the beginning and end of the day and is likely to become “the” place to be in a home – great for paying bills, doing homework, or just having a snack. In non-eat-in kitchens, most of this activity tends to clutter up kitchen counters and/or islands that are necessary for kitchen work, so while your table may become the dumping grounds, at least your counters are left alone!

What a great way to break up a long stretch of counter – and to keep an eye on the kitchen table goings-on while you’re cooking!
