Kitchen and Dining Furniture

Only add useful items

Don’t just fill your kitchen or dining room with unnecessary furniture. Every item that goes in here should fulfill a clear purpose.

Get more seating than you need

Think of the future by choosing a table that seats more than you need. This will help you to arrange parties or cope with a growing family.

Create a focal point

Choose a focal point where people meet to talk and eat at any time of the day. This can be a table, sofa, or breakfast bar.

Add dining room talking points

Make your dining room more interesting by adding talking points. This can be an interesting display cabinet, for example.

Don’t make it too crowded

Avoid the common mistake of making these rooms too busy. It is important to leave space to get around safely while carrying hot food or tools.

Give Your Kitchen Island A Stainless Steel Look

We needed a island in our kitchen and I wanted it to have a stainless steel top to match the rest of our appliances but stainless steel is not cheap. I had seen a post here, on Hometalk, that used EZ Faux Decor stainless steel film on a coffee table so I thought I'd give it a try for my kitchen island.
