Living in apartments well under one thousand square feet has not allowed me the privilege to have a kitchen much larger than a matchbook so it comes as no surprise that I am ecstatic about the idea of one day having one big enough to fit a table, some chairs and possibly even (gasp!) a bench. Whether it's a farmhouse table with some vintage chairs thrown around, an island to rest my elbows on or just a small nook complete with a table and comfortable bench, I've always been fond of sitting next to the warm oven and dining in...even if I am eating take-out. File under my future kitchen.
