Your small or even large kitchen needs innovative space saving ideas to enhance the functionality and spacious look of the place. If you already need an additional seating area in your kitchen to serve as a dining space, a reading nook, or just a gathering space for your family members, the suitable sized banquette will be your best choice.
According to the available space and design of your kitchen, you can define the type and shape of your new banquette. For example, the built-in banquette seating and the little cozy booth are perfect to provide your small kitchen a charming look and an additional space for meals. You can customize such a banquette to add a pop of color and pattern to the place.
If you have a large family, you can install a multi-functional banquette with a long table, a storage area, and a bench that can serve as a sofa or a picnic type seating. Moreover, you can enhance the functionality of your kitchen customizing a banquette with open shelves to display your favorite collections or store your dinnerware in a luxurious way.
Beside the straight-line banquette, you can find traditional or modern semi-circular, rounded, feminine, formal, bump out, or corner options to march your space and bring a sense of intimacy to your family meetings. The modern banquets are usually made of stainless steel or chrome frame covered with faux or natural leather with different colors to blend with your kitchen décor.
If you already have a window above the bench, it will be a perfect space for a sunny dining area, a breakfast nook, or a cozy reading nook. This way, you will keep your family members near you most of the time and enjoy preparing and having food with their company.
