If space is short in your kitchen consider buying a kitchen island with seating. I’m always advising people to consider buying items in the home that do double duty. A kitchen island with seating is a perfect example of this. Not only will they provide extra counter-top space but you can use the seating area to provide a breakfast bar or even a place to sit down while you prepare your food.
