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.

Also, homeowners have decided to keep the only table in the dining room. This opens up a ton of space in the kitchen! Also, this design creates a central gathering place in the kitchen. Of course, this is the perfect place to make new family memories.
