Kitchen/Dinette Renovation - Island vs chairs/table - need ideas

last month
last modified: last month

Moved into a house and would like to modernize this kitchen. Kitchen is 12x15 and with the dining nook, the room is 12x24. I'm getting new cabinets and intend to knock out the closet corner and have the cabinets wrap around into a coffee bar with a mini fridge. On the other side, I'm thinking of removing the peninsula and extending the cabinets down to the windows, but I don't know how/where to end it... the windows sit close to the floor so I don't want benched seating in the windows. I like the islands with a built-in table (see last picture) I would put this in the dining area near the windows but with the kitchen width only being 12 feet would it work? We have a separate formal dining room so this would just be for everyday casual use. Thoughts? Please share your moden ideas!
