Table: One of the most important furniture used is kitchen table. The table selected depends on the space of the kitchen and the purpose for which it is put to use. One needs to decide whether to use the table in the breakfast nook or for dining purpose. The table used in breakfast nook can be small whereas if it is used for dining purpose it should be big. Similarly the height, shape etc of the table should be given due consideration.
Stool: Stools can be of different types like the one with back support, backless, with arms, without arms, swivel, stationery etc. Similarly the height of the stool will also be different. If the stool is put to multiple uses, then it is always desirable to go for stools with adjustable height option. If it is put to only a single use, then a fixed height stool can be opted.

Countertop: Granite is the most widely used material for counter top. Even though granite is expensive, it is highly durable and elegant looking. The color, finish, edge, thickness etc of granite need to be paid special attention before purchasing. The color of the counter top should be one that blends with the overall décor of your kitchen. Granite slabs are available in 2 and 3 cm thickness. The latter is generally preferred because it is much stronger.
