In our book, there’s no argument that banquette seating looks great in any number of kitchen styles, but is this type of tucked-away seating a good fit for your kitchen redesign project?
When you go to a restaurant, are you a fan of sitting at a booth as opposed to sitting at a table? If the answer is yes, you could bring a touch of this style to your kitchen redesign by adding banquette seating! Banquette seating comes in various sizes and designs. If one of the many existing styles don’t quite match your vision, custom-built configurations could help complete your kitchen redesign. In our book, there’s no argument that banquette seating looks great in any number of kitchen styles, but is this type of tucked-away seating a good fit for your kitchen redesign project?
Where To Put Banquette Seating
Banquette seating looks perfectly befitting for an eat-in kitchen. In an open or closed kitchen layout, L-shaped, U-shaped, curved, straight-bench style banquettes and more can replace some of your current eat-in kitchen chairs with this stylish furniture piece. You could also tuck it away into an alcove to make a delightful breakfast nook. Some homeowners even decide to convert part of their kitchen island into banquette seating.
The Functionality of Banquette Seating
People love banquette seating for more than the visual interest it adds to any kitchen setting. This type of accommodation is quite functional and practical too. Bench-like seating can fit more seats into a space than individual chairs. For larger households, such as families with children, this is an attractive option. Also, this seating solution takes up less space than a standard table and chair arrangements. Banquette seating can be tucked against a wall or corner, freeing up space in smaller kitchens and rooms.
Cozy and Comfy Feel
Many styles of banquette seating look super inviting, which is perfect for someplace as warm and lively as your home kitchen. The set up gives off a cozy and comfy feel, which the addition of cushions or an alluring color palette further enhances.
Showcase Exceptional Design
Many pre-built banquette furniture sets already demonstrate exceptional style. It’s sure to be the crowning feature in any home. With custom-built designs, this type of seating can be taken to a whole new level. Clever ideas include creating hidden storage in the benches or building a bookcase around it. You can opt for more contemporary constructions, with painted finishes and upholstery. Or, you can show off a wood banquette set that complements your traditional kitchen style.
