Confined in the kitchen

I'm fairly new at being a cat-owner and I wasn't sure if my kitties are okay being kept in the kitchen when we're not home and while we sleep. The kitchen is pretty big and there is a window and a large sliding door that they can look out of. We usually put everything away on the countertops so they're free to climb up there and on their tri-level scratching post. Basically, everything they need is in that room (i.e. toys, beds, litterbox, food and water).
I want to let them roam the living room too but the girl, Sassy, has a bad habit of chewing on electric cords (I posted a question about that in "Think Like a Cat"). I just feel so guilty keeping them in there but I don't want to risk her getting hurt. I try to make up for it by giving them my complete and undivided attention when I'm home and letting them have the run of the house when I'm there.
