Are kitchen tables outdated in today's modern homes? Is kitchen dining furniture still used? There are two reasons for asking this question: the increasing popularity of islands incorporating breakfast bars in larger kitchens, and the trend toward open plan areas in smaller and even average-size homes.
Use tall, 2' deep cabinets instead of overhead cabinets. 2 foot deep, 7 foot tall cabinets (or 8 foot tall) are also known as pantry or utility cabinets. With fixed shelves, they hold over 4 times as much stuff as an overhead cabinet. Put a line of tall cabinets along a back wall, and near the opening to the kitchen zone. By having a 2' wide, 2' deep, 7' tall cabinet near the Kitchen opening (usually next to the Dining Area) it can store all the glasses, dishes, platters, and bowls that you use on a daily basis. People don't have to enter the kitchen to get the dinnerware to set the table as you would with overhead cabinets.
In fact, in medieval ages, peasants did not have their own kitchens. Public kitchens were used and only the rich or wealthy had their own kitchen, usually with a cook. It is a world so far removed from our modern way of life, and so fascinating. Cooking was mostly done over an open fire and was obviously a much lengthier and harder process than we are used to today. Fires were used to keep warm and to cook and food was obviously very basic. But even our earliest ancestors enjoyed sharing a meal with others and it has always been considered a social event, even in the early days of mankind.
Another option is to have your kitchen cabinets refaced to change the whole look of the kitchen at a significantly lower cost than new cabinets. However, if your existing cabinets are too old or the wood beneath the original facing is in poor condition, you would be better off installing new cabinets. Look for sleek, stylish cabinets with more interior space than your old cabinets since your storage needs have likely increased over time. If you are going to build a new kitchen from the ground up, consider your future needs and install a sufficient number of cabinets.
