With any good kitchen design you want to have functionality that is diverse. With this kitchen that means being able to enjoy both breakfast and dinner in the same space. This dining room table works great for both, and if the kids want to they can eat breakfast in the family room adjacent while watching cartoons. I like kitchen spaces that have seamless transitions like this one, so that each space appears bigger because this s essentially one big room with multiple elements. It is all about how you design the space so that you can tell where each distinct room beings.
