The amenity of your dining corner is not to be underestimated. The place where you eat most of your meals should have high levels of comfort, there’s no doubt about that. It will contribute to the feeling of coziness while you are dining, not to mention keep your guest comfortable any time you are hosting a gathering. Banquettes are surely the easiest way to turn your dining space into a highly comfortable seating area, giving your comfy living room some serious competition!
The Right Size and Space
Small kitchens have a feeling of coziness already in them, but adding a banquette instead of a normal sitting arrangement will only heighten the feeling of “home sweet home”.
Place the banquette next to a big window and eat your meals in natural light. Your dining space can become the second sunroom, surely a decision that will have you reaping benefits for many years! There’s no such thing as vitamin D! We love this setting by Elizabeth Zeschin.
A banquette will fit into any dining space, no matter how simple. You can absolutely keep things minimal and subtle, only adding a simple cushion to it and allowing the open space to remain as is.
But if you shudder at the thought of only one cushion on your banquette, by all means, fill the seating space with as many pillows as you possibly can! When have pillows ever been a nuisance?
Sometimes smaller tables don’t allow for many chairs around them, which is why banquettes are incredibly convenient. You can gather much more people around a small table for drinks, rather than having them bumping their chairs together!
Imagine drinking your morning coffee in this cozy dining space found at WL. The farmhouse vibes are making us want to wrap ourselves in that plaid blanket, sit on the simply decorated banquette and gaze out the window to the beautiful nature!
Finally, a banquette that fits a family big in size! Eating your meals together shouldn’t be taken for granted, so build a banquette big enough to fit everyone and enjoy many more family moments together! Picture by Amber Interiors.
You can even completely ditch the chairs and allow the banquette to embrace the table from two or three sides, leaving much room for easier reach! When it looks good and has handy features, you know it’s a superb choice!
