I will do an upholstered corner bench (with storage under the seats) European style. Add a rectangular table and 3 chairs on the outside (if needed) . The wall color is OK.
Why the kitchen cabinets did not go up to ceiling? I call that space dust collector.

Can't use too big of a table because it would block the door to the deck. I second the banquette idea. A retangular table would probably be best.

I think a round table would work best. You wouldn't block the door and more people can sit at a round table. Also with a leaf it becomes oval...

i could see this being very light and airy - with a aqua / straw pattern wallpaper on stencil on the walls and L shaped Banquette Seating - the back of L dividing the kitchen and dinning and the back of the seating picking up the straight lines moulding of the cabinets

Use a settee and rectangle table like pictured. Mix and match fabric chairs. Have fun!

old farmhouse table, with mix/match chairs all painted and distressed in white/off white. Sisal rug underneath table. Love the wall color as is, or a pale gray. I found a great use of unique ornate serving platters of all different sizes displayed on the wall. Also, some nice contrasting drapes, not too long though would look amazing or bamboo shades...lovely kitchen whatever you decide...best of luck to you!

Brenda M. Yes, that is a beautiful solution! I would avoid a "built in" corner bench. They may look nice, but they really aren't that comfortable. The settee and rectangular table = nice. Keep the upholstery white or nearly white to keep the room light and bright. Your favorite kind of wood table and a colorful carpet. Flowers on the table. voila .

An upholstered bench built in under the window, with an oval table, to curb the rectangular shape of the room, and give a softer look, while also making it easier to pass by to the door without sharp corners of a rectangular table. I would use a free standing upholstered bench opposite the built in bench, and 2 round back chairs for either end. I cannot get a good look at the wall across from the windows, but if it is unobstructed, I would use a large scale art piece to add drama, but not take up space.

This space would be perfect for the Restoration Hardware 17th C. Monastery table in Grey Acacia with some linen upholstered chairs!! Love that look. If probably change the drum shade to a more airy chandelier with lots of interest. It could be a beautiful but casual and functional space and it looks good sized! Here's the table I'm talking about. They also have it in round if you prefer that bit I think you have the space for a rectangle table.

The room looks a bit longer than it is wide so I would consider doing a round dining table. Beyond that, it depends upon the style you are trying to create. For instance, for a handwrought look, you could use a vintage wrought iron table with a glass, tile or maybe metal (zinc? copper?) top, A round table will make the whole room less of a long rectangle, will match the light fixture and add a new shape to the kitchen. Plus, round tables are more conducive to conversation :-) A rectangular glass vintage patio table would be interesting, though, too. If you want wood, then I would go either really dark - almost black - or really light (as in a bleached look) The upside of using a wood table is that you could get one with leaves. How about a wood table in a colorful stain? Green, gray (for a more monochromatic look), even something bright like orange could work. Lastly, if you want something very contemporary, I would do a metal table (st.st.?) with a glass top and simple, Parsons-like chairs. Whatever style you like, I think it will work as long as you don't try to match the floor with a woodtone.

I like the idea mentioned before about a corner bench..not sure if windows are too low to make a high back board? If anything pillows can be used.

Maybe get rid of the low hanging light…switch it up for something that gives off more light and is positioned higher. maybe even wall lights above your window? for table, if you dont want it obstructing your doors…a rectangle table in distressed wood that shows some character would be cool…i even dare to suggest a white-ish marble table? but thats all depending on your kitchen counter tops (cant really see), lifestyle and preferences of course.

Good Luck! ^^

I Think an L shaped bench table would be great up against the wall with the door> Should be a dark colored wood as to match the flooring.

Really nice kitchen and I love the floors. I agree with the idea of a built in bench with storage You can make it comfortable by adding extra padding on the back and seat and some colorful pillows in whatever color you prefer. Good luck, let us the finished area when you decide.

Hard to tell the wall color, but it really depends on your design...I would personally put in some window coverings, paint the walls a light soft color like candle light....check out Behr's color called Malted Milk...almost has a background pinkish tone without coming across that way, I would change the lighting because for my taste it is too contemporary or retro, replace with a wrought iron looking casual chandelier, and for a table, either a black distressed table and chairs, or wrought iron with a glass top and chairs with upholstered seats to tie in with the window coverings.....but that's just me....

The space needs to be brightly painted...bright green or yellow. Hang a more modern lamp. There should be a banquette against the wall with a floral pattern. The table should be glass and chrome and two lucite chairs should be across from the banquette with pads that match the banquette pattern.

Don't know how much space you have between the tops of the cabinets and the ceiling, but maybe you could add a beautiful crown molding to cabinets to reach the ceiling.

I agree, there is no good reason for such a small space above the cabinets. The other option would be to add rope lighting for ambiance.

@design98 S.Timberlake Company in Bethel Maine builds all types of ladder back side chairs and we can built a farm table if space is big enough to allow it, a drop leaf table done in walnut might be best. www.stimberlake.com or 1-800-780-6681 to speak with Ross about design ideas.Our Shaker chair seats may be done with traditional cotton canvas tape to match any kitchen colors or fibre rush.
