Banquettes are a great way to fit a dining space into a small kitchen, nestle in a designated breakfast nook, or even just a way to add a cozy element to a spacious kitchen.
Islands are all the rage, and they will be a constant staple in the world of kitchen design. But if you don’t have the space for an island, or you prefer a cozier seating option, consider a banquette on one wall or corner of the kitchen, it can give you just what you’ve been looking for.
I have been scribbling up very rough renovation plans non-stop for our condo. And although we may never renovate at all, it is fun to play around with the concept. The element, I can’t help but try to include is the banquette! In our small galley kitchen it would be such a great bonus niche! You can add storage into the benches and seasonally change out cushions and accessories to play with different colors. Really, what’s not to love?!
