Remodeling kitchen -- How much seating is too much?
February 17, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We have a nice North view from our kitchen table with a 6' slider window It seats 4. We have a dining area that seats 6. currently that dining area is behind a wall that will come down opening up the space. The dining area will then be relocated up against an exterior west facing wall pushing out a window and adding banquet seating. I really love the view from both these spaces. The dilemma is we are also adding an island and i like the idea of seating at the island... maybe only 2 small stools. How much seating is too much? Are there rules about this sort of thing? from the kitchen table to the corner of the kitchen is 19' from that corner of the kitchen to the end of dining area is 21' - L shape. The island would be about half way between, creating an triangle of sorts. Whew! Thanks so much, any and all comments welcome!

I am not sure if there is any rule, and it may seem silly, but if I were I would consider the amount of time it takes to move all these chairs around when you are sweeping or mopping the floors...

You can never have too many seats in a kitchen. That is the heart of the home.
