Why not: "Де? В кухні."?

For some unknown reason we use на with kitchen :) It's a colloquial form, but became really widespread. But у кухні still can be used. Almost anyone will say на кухні if it's about a place where people cook (it may be not in a separate room) and у кухні may be used if you want to say something specifically about a room.

one can install something or place a new armchair у кухні but to eat, to chat, to cook - на

на кухні sounds more natural for Ukrainians and for the colloquial language
