Are You a Fan of Eat In Kitchens? ~ January 24, 2016

As a homemaker, the majority of my day is spent in the kitchen. Whether I'm cooking a meal, baking some goodies or cleaning up afterwards, the kitchen just seems to be my "main domain".

Our home was built in 1948. During this time period, the floorplan of a home was not open, and most generally, the kitchen was a room of its own, as it is here.

I truly miss the open floorplan of our much newer, former home. But, where that was a more desirable feature, there were also those features that were less desirable, yet here those less desirable features are non-existent. In the end, it really comes down to this - there are always pros and cons no matter the place that you call home.

I'm definitely a fan of eat in kitchens. And I like a kitchen that beckons people in not only to eat, but to sit and chat, to relax and enjoy themselves.  

Here are some pictures I really like of eat in kitchen areas that I'd be thrilled to have in my own home! ☺

Quaint and cozy.

LOVE the windows and sunlight pouring in here!

The style is a bit too contemporary for my taste, but this kitchen welcomes people in to eat and socialize!

Looks traditional and inviting.

The island is absolutely my favorite thing here, along with the glass door cabinets.

Just dreaming, but it sure has been fun!

  1. Fabulous examples of beautiful "eat-in" kitchens. I, also am a fan of eat-in kitchens. When we built a our home many years ago (feels like a lifetime ago) we designed the kitchen with space for table and chairs. I loved it and think of it often. When I became a single parent I moved from Southern California to Northern California and thereafter had to rent for many years until moving here in 1993.Blessings.

  2. Mary, I had a lovely country kitchen in one of my former homes my ex-husband and I had built. It had lovely sunshine nearly all day and led out to a beautiful 10' high deck that overlooked the country fields all around. The sunrises and sunsets were very spectacular in that home, and I have to say, I miss it very much!! Blessings to you likewise!
