I wish we had room for a desk in the kitchen. My kids do homework on the kitchen table, and it wouldn’t get done if they were in their rooms with all the distractions there. Often, the homework stays on the kitchen table and we end up using our dining room every day for dinner. But at least that means we use our dining room! I think it’s really important not to have computers or ipads in bedrooms for kids (it’s already hard enough to know what they are accessing digitally), and chargers etc should either be in the kitchen or the office.

Our home office is currently our dining room table. Ugh. Will integrate some of these ideas when we move / build.

The kitchen of the house we are buying has a great area for a desk set-up (although its height indicates that it was probably intended as a bar). One can sit there and look into the living room, thus having the ability to carry on a conversation with someone in the living room and someone in the kitchen.
