What Houzz contributors are saying:
I've attended several conferences about kids and technology, and one of the more interesting takeaways is this little tidbit: families report spending more time together when there's a computer in the kitchen. Hear me out. The presence of a computer gets kids out of their rooms and again doing homework at the proverbial kitchen table. It's easier to help when needed, so there's no "wait until after dinner" for a parent to assist. Screens can be terrible barriers to intimacy and interfere with family time, but bringing one into the kitchen seems to help mitigate that.
Here's another equally appealing example of a small built-in desk that provides maximum efficiency and storage in an otherwise unused nook. There is semi-privacy for concentrated work by having the desk tucked deep into the nook, but it is still open and connected to the kitchen. Win-win.
