There is a reason why living room and kitchens were separated, unless you have a manorial space to play with, keep the two apart, that is my advice.
It is unnecessary at best ( unless confined space dictates otherwise ) and unhygienic at best.

Joe, these days you get a large kitchen and no living room at all. Developers stick kitchen units at the end of a room, and still call it a living room... This is further aggravated by inadequacy and lack of logical functional thinking on the part of designers...

With the kitchen in our weekender we kept it simple with a large island and some simple stools, that tuck under the counter saving damage to the backs of stools and minimising the floor space used.
