Kitchen banquettes have a nostalgic charm about them. With its seamless design and plentiful seating options, this distinctive seating can fit into almost any home.
If you think kitchen banquettes are a one-size-fits-all design, think again. Check out these design ideas to help you create a banquette that’s perfect for your family.
Hoping to make the most of this sun-filled nook, this space was well suited for a curved banquette. This style helps the seating to fit seamlessly in the room, with minimal disruption to the rest of the room’s flow. Even better, the extra long bench provides plenty of seating options and encourages people to linger and enjoy each other’s company long after the meal is over.
Just off the Kitchen
What are your design options when your kitchen space is too small for banquette seating? If you’re this clever, you make the seating into a statement piece in another space. By incorporating the industrial elements, like the metal finishes on the chandelier, the design flows seamlessly into each room. Putting the table outside of a corner also gives more room for seating, with the possibility to add more chairs at the ends.
No doubt inspired by the traditional cabinets and finishes, this corner banquette has a simple yet elegant approach. For a kitchen lacking the space required for its own “breakfast nook”, a corner banquette can be the perfect solution, fitting into an area that is often otherwise overlooked, and often underutilized!
U Shaped Banquette
Take a sun-soaked corner and add a simple white bench, and all of a sudden you have the perfect dining corner. While some people assume that most, if not all, of your kitchen walls should be dedicated to cabinets and storage, this smart setup proves sacrificing the extra storage space is worth it. Using the same wood finish on both the cabinets and table accentuates the room’s rustic chic look.
Banquette with Storage
In this modern space, the gray hued cushions and patterned throw pillows steal the show, so much that you might not even notice the additional storage hiding underneath the benches. While this nook is tighter on space, the table is more streamlined to give the illusion of more legroom.
Banquette with Attached Island
To make the most of your kitchen, it’s important to consider how to minimize space. Putting the bench against the kitchen island creates a quaint place to dine that doesn’t take up too much space. Modern, upholstered chairs and a rustic wood top accentuates the room’s stylish look.
