Most of your kitchen is likely to consist of fitted cabinets, perhaps with one or two pieces that are freestanding. But if you pick out a statement item of furniture, like a dresser, sideboard or dining table, that will stand in the dining zone and is of the same style as your cabinetry, it blurs the line between where one space begins and the other ends. For example, in the second and third images, there’s a Suffolk dresser and a Suffolk dining table with a Suffolk kitchen just a few steps away.
Or, can you use shelving in parts of the kitchen, rather than wall cabinets, that match the dining table? Our Carter shelves in the kitchen with the corresponding oak and blackened steel dining table in a different part of the room is proof of how well this approach can work too.
