In addition to the clean neutral palette trend, homeowners are opening up the floor plan. By removing the kitchen table, homeowners are enlarging their space. Instead of a traditional kitchen table, most kitchen remodel jobs include an island with seating.  This adds valuable storage space. In addition, cooks have more food prep space.
