Kitchen booth seating with storage: Clever ideas for your banquette
Posted on 15th July 2021
Love kitchen booth and banquette seating already? Let me introduce you to this amped up version with seriously useful benefits. The team and I talk a lot about storage here at These Three Rooms. Why? Well, can you ever really have enough? I’m all for getting more storage space into a home, and particularly into a kitchen where you’ll always find something that needs a place (or is that just me?).
Multi-functional storage is a great idea and works brilliantly in a small kitchen where you’re a little tight on space.
Kitchen booth seating or banquette seating is made-to measure bench-style seating that’s built into a room, so is immovable. It means you can utilise those awkward areas where a dining table and seating might not work, you could create a window seat, add a bench area to the end of a run of units, or even create a long banquette along one wall or on the room-facing side of an island.
A joiner or kitchen designer can give you ideas for how banquette seating might work in your kitchen and create a bespoke design for you in the most practical place.
Once you’ve found the best spot for a built-in seat, take it to the next level: banquette seating with storage. Oh yes. Make the seat a lift-up lid and voila, you have storage. Add some drawers beneath the seat: extra storage. Let’s take a look at some clever ideas, shall we?
