I would make it counter height. I have a desk in my kitchen. It is the only thing I don't like about my 1961 kitchen. It becomes a clutter pile since it isn't useable work space in the kitchen.

If you plan to sit at it and aren't really tall, a 36" desk is not ideal. Too tall for chairs, too low for bar stools.
