KITCHEN BANQUETTE

In our small narrow townhouse we don’t have a formal dining room, we have an eat-in-kitchen.

I can’t complain, it is very bright, spacious and opens up to our back yard as well.

We have a simple brown dining table with simple brown chairs from IKEA. The walls are white and plain with no wall paper or artwork. Maybe later, I will post a picture of our dining space, but now, I am too ashamed to do so.

Our eat-in kitchen, is not functional, and has become a wasted space for us. We rarely use the dining table. The three of us, we eat in a small spot in one of our counters.

This week, I am considering and loving the idea of a kitchen banquette.

I am not sure how it would look in our eat-in-kitchen and if my hubby would even consider it.

So, this afternoon, I searched for some inspiration on Pinterest.

Oh! my! I found some inspiration there!

I love those beautiful spaces.

I created myself a new board “ Dining Room Banquette” for inspiration. I printed them and pined them on my cork board (inspiration board) too.

These are some of my favorites pictures I pinned earlier this week, I thought it would be fun sharing them with you.  Every single one of these pictures create a warm feeling, I wish I could create this feeling in my home.

After looking at all these beautiful pictures, I realized that having a kitchen banquette could offer us :

-much needed storage

More seating for many more people

-coziness (they look very comfortable)

-better access to our back yard

-an interesting kitchen decor

Now, I will keep dreaming about this idea and hope it will become true, I will keep you posted once I decide on what do with this boring dining space.

Banquette or Dining Table for eight?, I will wait and see.
