The best designer tables and chairs for a contemporary kitchen

The kitchen has shifted from being an isolated area to an open and social space where you cook, work, meet your friends and where furniture takes on a unifying role with the rest of the home.

Often treated as additional rooms (open-space design), kitchens have become one of the most popular spaces in the homes due to their multipurpose nature and the sheer joy of being in them.

Located at the heart of the home and connected to other spaces, such as the living room, kitchens have a more social role depending on the decor chosen and the layout of the furniture. Organising kitchen utensils with modular cabinets, open shelving or high chairs around the worktop are just some of the new ideas that interior designers have come up with.

Below, we offer you some keys to transforming your kitchen into a designer space with the following tables and chairs.

Combine the table into the worktop

One of the latest proposals of the new interior design is to connect the kitchen's central table to the worktop.

The classic breakfast bar with high stools does not need to be used just for eating, but can serve as an integrated dining table.

If you choose this option, it is important to remember that the table must be at a lower height than the traditional bar. In addition, you should leave at least one metre of separation between the two areas to avoid the chairs obstructing the passage.

To design an integrated kitchen, you can also choose to place a high table on the side and frame it with high chairs.

If you want to give it a more modern touch, you can add a metallic ceiling lamp or open wooden shelving.

Ergonomic chairs for increased comfort

Ergonomic chairs will highlight the practicality and comfort of the kitchen and give it a more original touch.

For the design to be harmonious and functional, the chairs you choose must have a proportional width between the base and the backrest.

Timeless chairs

Elegance and modernity go hand in hand, especially when it comes to a set of timeless table and chairs.

This is what can be achieved when natural wood furniture is combined with neutral colours such as white, beige or grey.

Extendable tables to expand the dining room

If you have a small dining room, you can place an extendable table to give you more space and pair it with folding chairs.

This will make it easier to move around the room and have more free spaces.

Another option is w¡with hinged flap tables. These tables occupy very little space and can be extended or folded by simply opening the flap.

Large and proportioned tables

 

If you have a spacious dining room, you can place a rectangular wooden or glass table in combination with upholstered, plaited, Scandinavian -style or vintage chairs.

If you opt for a homogeneous design, you can include a square or circular table with matching chairs.

This ensures that the table and chair heights correspond and that the design is more uniform.
