You love your open-concept living/kitchen/dining room for its bright and spacious vibes. But establishing designated areas within all that wide-open space hasn’t exactly been easy. Enter: the kitchen island banquette.
Here’s the deal. You build a bench into one side of your kitchen island (or fake it with a free-stander), thereby cuddling up the dining room with the kitchen—and gaining, like, a ton of square footage in the process.
We especially love this setup in a modern farmhouse-style kitchen, but it also works in more formal or industrial spaces.
In our HO, it’s the perfect way to mix intimacy and coziness with airiness and modernity. Pass us the sledgehammer.
