Cabinets: Built In Banquettes

Cabinets: Built In Banquettes

When you walk into a kitchen, there are a few things you can always count on: a refrigerator, a table and...well, lots of hustle and bustle.

Back to school is in the air and the kitchen is about to become an even more high traffic area with packing school lunches and homework. With more to do, wouldn’t it be nice to find a space that can function both as a homework station and lunch prep station?

Built in Banquettes are great ways to actually fit both activities in at the same time. They not only help create more space in an ever fast moving space, but also allows a functional gathering place. Lets take a look at why.

First, they are great space saver: it can fit more of those school uniforms in one place for that homework or meal prep spot. Second, it can have built in storage that can be great for organizing and more seating.

Many banquette tables are placed against a wall of windows. This creates a perfect spot to have the direct light and sunshine - that we all love to feel on our faces or backs. Another place you can find banquette tables are actually built right into the kitchen island.

While considering these gorgeous built in banquettes, something to keep in mind is be sure you have designated a spot and measured the area; as banquette seating is meant to help with the flow of the room and not create a inefficient space instead.

Lastly, take a look at a few ways these designers have installed banquettes and get inspiration for your next project!
