Make the most out of your kitchen or dining area with banquette seating, also known as a dining bench. The result feels cozy and more comfortable and delivers more impactful style than a standard set of chairs. That’s not to say you have to select one or the other. Whether you lean modern or toward a retro dining set, a banquette bench visually anchors a table while complementing the versatility chairs offer.
When Might You Want Banquette Seating?
You’re interested in adding a dinette for more casual meals — but want to elevate this corner of your kitchen. You also frequently have guests over, and want to make the most, style and comfort wise, of what most would call limited space. This could be square footage alone or a more angular configuration.
Traditional and corner-style banquettes deliver this through a bench that offers an upholstered place to sit and takes up a full corner or wall. The result avoids a minimal, understated appearance, allows for more legroom and less of a cramped sensation, and, through backless options, creates an illusion of space. At the same time, banquettes aren’t strictly for this type of dining area. Lengths accommodate longer tables and can be pushed underneath once you’ve finished your meal.
Exploring Dining Benches and Banquettes
Banquette seating has been around for decades, both in homes and commercial settings. Thus, if you’re striving to match something to an antique table, you can likely find a dining bench reflecting a similar décor style.
