The reason this kitchen says “cozy/family” is the intimacy, but also the clutter of pots, pans and cooking utensils. In this case the kitchen is cluttered well. You may think that this is not possible, but I beg to differ. For a kitchen that ahs a family using it for cooking and spending time together, you want to have cooking tools and such readily available. With the ever changing desires of kids, you also want enough tools handy to deal with what they may want in the moment. In this way, this kitchen is brilliantly designed to meet the needs of a bustling family.
