    Creative Kitchen Dining Ideas

    Most people want to be able to eat in their kitchen, but the type of dining varies enormously. Some people just want somewhere to read the paper while the coffee brews but others like to be able to fit the whole family around the table for a full Sunday lunch. Whatever your needs, there’s a creative kitchen dining solution for you.

    At Surrey Marble and Granite, we’re expert stone workers, which means that we have a great deal of experience working in homes and businesses throughout the south of England. We’ve seen some amazingly creative kitchen solutions, and have been proud to provide the beautiful marble, granite or quartz worktops that finished the look off!

    Extend your Worktops

    Even if you’ve got a separate dining room and a small kitchen, many families prefer to breakfast in the kitchen. Stone is self supporting, so you can extend your worktops without extra support. Extending a marble or quartz worktop can give you a practical breakfast bar without reducing your cabinet space. As an added benefit, it gives you more workspace when cooking!

    Create a Kitchen Island

    Combine storage and a dining area with a kitchen island. Using the same material for a kitchen island creates a unified look without increasing the costs. Processed stone, such as quartz worktops, is hygienic, easy-to-clean and durable, making it a great choice for a kitchen island that doubles as a breakfast bar or family dining area.

    Dropped Worktops

    Not everyone wants to perch on a stool to eat breakfast. Creating a peninsula at a lower level gives you space to dine at table height that doubles as a worktop. As an added advantage, it’ll be at a better height for children and wheelchair users, and you can easily sit down while you prepare the veg or press out cookies. Marble or quartz worktops are ideal, as the stone remains cool, providing a better preparation surface.

    Change the Colour

    More and more homes have combined kitchen/dining or kitchen/living areas, and making the transition between the two distinctive without being jarring is a challenge. One great idea we’ve seen is to create a breakfast bar or peninsula dining table at the dividing line and to make it out of the same material as the kitchen worktops – but in a different colour. Processed stones, used for quartz worktops, are an ideal choice for this, as the range of colours is simply enormous. Choose a jewel tone or a bright primary for a pop of colour that will never need a table cloth or keep it classic with a traditional black or white.

    Any Shape you Like

    We mentioned that stone is self-supporting, and it can also be cut into almost any shape you like. This makes it easy to create a granite or quartz worktop that fits your kitchen and gives you the perfect dining area at the same time. This might be an oval kitchen island, a long and narrow peninsula or perhaps even a unique shape, something that looks, from above, like a bulge or a smooth curve, but which fits your kitchen perfectly.
