Even a small kitchen design can benefit from additional seating. Consider incorporating ideas for kitchen and dining furniture that allow you to express your sensibility and have fun with the design. Modern bar stools offer the ideal blend of elegance and function and can easily be color-matched to slip flawlessly into the flow of the room’s design.

Pairing wood and black in your kitchen design can create a dramatic and engaging effect. Add tall black metal chairs for seating to create an avant-garde space for entertainment. A minimalist island is also one of the best ideas for arranging furniture in a rectangular kitchen to conserve space.

A dark wood dining room table and chairs and bar stools for a lighter kitchen island create plenty of space for guests to dine and converse. If your kitchen is near a patio or has large windows, choose a lighter paint color for the walls to make the most of any natural light.

Expand Storage With a Glass-Front Cabinet

An elegant cabinet with glass-front doors can allow you to keep dishes and cooking implements close to hand, and even gives you an opportunity to display some of your favorite décor accents for a touch of color.
