Banquette Seating - An Alternative to the Kitchen Island
With the kitchen being considered the heart of the home, it's no surprise that one of the most requested items for a new kitchen is a place for family and friends to gather. Often times designers are asked to include a seating area incorporated into the kitchen island or peninsula. However, that is not the only option. I am seeing more and more designers using built-in cabinetry also known as banquette seating to create a warm and inviting place for friends and family to gather in the kitchen.
An added benefit to built-in seating is the additional storage can be designed into the banquette such as drawer storage, wine storage, or even concealed storage that is accessed by a hinged top. Below are examples of banquette seating using Dura Supreme cabinetry that have been created by our talented network of kitchen and bath designers.
In fact, why confine banquette seating to the kitchen...built-in seating can be added in just about any room as illustrated below.
