Furniture placement also can make all the difference in the way a room feels. In this kitchen, most of the cabinets and appliances are stationary and cannot be easily moved. However, to create a nest-like environment, a simple metal table is added to one side. The table offers additional counter and prep space, but also encloses the kitchen somewhat to create a nest-like space. The ceiling beam in this kitchen also helps delineate the kitchen from the rest of the house. This is a great way to have an open living area without sacrificing nesting spaces.
