The one thing I really wanted in a house, that we didn’t get here, was a dining room separate from the kitchen. But instead we have an eat-in-kitchen that has a little corner for a dining table and chairs.
So far we have thoroughly enjoyed our retro “dinette set”. It is cute and fits our 50s farmhouse vibe.
Eventually though, we’ll have to retire our yellow gem. And when we do, I would love to put banquette seating into our cozy dining corner.
According to Teri at A Little Design Help, here’s what banquette seating is.
“Banquette seating refers to the built-in benches often found in restaurant seating.”
And here is what I like about banquette seating.
- The benches can be used for storage.
- Takes up less room than a regular dining table.
- Cute and cozy
- Kid friendly
- Fun way to add color to your kitchen
Of course I have went to Pinterest to find all sorts of inspiration for this upcoming project. Here are my favorite images that I pinned. Find more images and photo sources on my Pinterest board banquette seating!
Someday, we will get around to this project! It is really hard on the credit card to constantly be renovating.. Anyhow, which photo is your favorite? I’d love to hear about your banquette seating dining area!
