YAY FOR BANQUETTES!

One of my favorite things to see in a kitchen besides a built in fridge haha Is a cozy banquette.  Not only do they save space, there is something unique and charming about them.  It makes one feel like you are having a meal at your favorite restaurant. Banquettes are a pretty easy DIY- simply broken down, all you need is a box deep enough to sit comfortably on and some sort of backing. Here are standard dimensions and measurements you want to follow if you are attempting this on your own:

 

You could try this look out by putting a bench against a wall in your dining area and adding some pillows for a backing, however below here a few to feast your eyes on!
