This really is the ultimate family kitchen because it features so many cool elements that would be perfect for the whole family. We have a little table there for the kids and their friends to eat dinner during those special visits or for dinner parties where more than one family gets together. I really like the hardwood floors and the matching furniture. That sort of thing goes a long way towards elevating the earthy aesthetic of the space. The furniture looks very comfortable, and we even have a great piano kin the background. It is almost like the kitchen space is the center of the house.
