Our kitchen is kind of small. The table is shoved in a corner by the sliding door that goes out to the porch. We'd love to remodel and put in more counter space, but that still leaves the problem of too little table room. What I think we might do is just build an island that has a lower spot to eat and have bar stools to sit at. We like to go to Lowe's and check out their little mock kitchens, we saw a setup we really liked a few weeks ago and want to do something like that in our kitchen eventually.
