Bench Seating Inspiration

Kitchen's can always use extra seating. Formal dining rooms are nice but not always available in smaller spaces. Finding that balance between a kitchenette and enough space to seat a family is easier than you might think. Bench seating can create extra space where you might not think you have it.

With a traditional dining room table it would need to be in the middle of the room to allow for people to move around the chairs. If you need that room for other things, a bench seat allows you to put the table up against the wall and give your more floor space.

It can create seating where you thought you couldn't have it. This little corner would normally barely fit two and a simple bench can add additional seating and storage.

Don't have a dinning room or need that space for something else? Take your breakfast nook up a notch! Bench seating can double as storage space too! That's a win-win.

I have a banquette - very comfortable with cushions and pillows. Everyone loves it. Even if I plan a more formal dinner, my friends still prefer the banquette in the kitchen. I think I will turn the dining room into an office or den.
