This is an ideal kitchen area for dinner parties. part of what makes it work so well is that the living room space and the kitchen are essentially in the same space, which means that if you wanted you could have people enjoying dinner on the couch as well as at the dining room table and the bar. In addition, the color pallet is very helpful to making this an enjoyable space for groups. It is well lit and cheerful, and the big windows make the space feel even bigger than it is. Another thing that helps with this effect is the high ceiling.
