Just like Dutch doors and butler’s pantries, built-in kitchen banquettes adds practicality and charm to any space!
I don’t know that many people who have a kitchen banquette, but the one friend who does have it, loves it! And can I say how adorable it is?!
They are utterly charming! Kitchen banquettes, along with things like dutch doors and butler’s pantries, are having a bit of a renaissance – and I’m so glad!
They are practical; a great use of space, look and feel cozy, and work wonderfully with kids and families. Plus, did I mention the charm factor?!

However, for those of us (like me) who would love to have one, but either can’t or won’t do a built-in, the solution is to use a settee on one side of the table. It’s the perfect compromise because it gives you the same look as the built-in banquette, without all the pesky building!
This is one I may just do!!
