Layout #3: The Eat-In Kitchen

Space for casual dining.

1. A double galley-style layout with loads of surface space means two cooks can work at once without tripping over each other.

2. An undercounter speed oven combines a microwave with a convection-mode oven and is integral for a busy lifestyle.

3. Tucked right alongside the range and wall, a small section of counter is a handy spot for storing and displaying oils and spices in pretty bottles and jars.

4. Smaller than an island, a charming Euro-inspired worktable with stainless steel top takes up little floor space but adds an extra prep surface.

5. Incorporating a built-in counter-depth fridge next to a pantry of the same height gives the kitchen a seamless look.

6. A bank of upper and lower cabinets beside the fridge offers a variety of storage options, amping up the room's practicality and allowing for an extra work surface.

7. Creating a fully furnished eating area in the kitchen frees up the adjacent dining room for another purpose, like expanding a home's living areas. Setting the table near the french doors gives pretty views of the yard.
