table or bar/island? Sign In/Join

We have a small eat-in kitchen (no dining room) and would like to put in a bar/island in place of table and chairs. Would like opinions, please. What shape table takes up less room?

For a table? Really depends on the shape of your available space, and how many need to be seated at the same time?
I think a pedestal table can often work well, as chairs can be used any where around it. We had a drop leaf pedestal table in our first home, and it worked very well in the small kitchen. One or both of the leafs could be dropped for more space when not being used.
A smaller, round table could also work.

Oh yeah...lets do plan to put a steam shower in the kitchen. One could eat and then wash dishes without leaving the table!

Spammers can be so.... S T U P I D.
