That's called a sum all fallacy. Just because I view it as time better spent does not mean I have a negative view of you.

I have an old galley kitchen and I love it because I agree with all six of the above suggestions. When I cook I need to concentrate on cooking, not be chatting and listening to all the other noise.

I think there is a lot to be said in support of a kitchen that can be closed off! All good points.
