Booth Kitchen Table

In addition to a kitchen table and island, designer Peter Salerno incorporated this quaint booth in his kitchen remodel in order to add a cozy spot for the family to dine. “The first cup of coffee in the morning was in the booth,” explains Peter. “The kids’ breakfast was served in the booth or on the island. Dinner was at the kitchen table with the family. For big family parties all three are used.”

This year, I was part of an effort called We Won’t Wait. We engaged women  —  from the kitchen table to the voting booth  —  on the issues they care about and what’s at stake for them in this election. The We Won’t Wait collaboration held more than 2 million kitchen table conversations with women around the country. And we heard about everything from the challenges of elder care and lack of paid leave to mass incarceration and the need for immigration reform. It turns out women, particularly women of color and low-income women, are not single issue voters. It makes sense. As workers, women, leaders, friends and family members, including mothers and daughters, we don’t live single issue lives. We live three dimensional lives. And while we may be equal in the voting booth, the rest of the country hasn’t gotten that message. In order to change this, we need to ensure that every single one of us gets to the polls on election day, and continues to work for full equality in our democracy every day after.

No matter who you are or how big your house is, the chances are that eventually you’ll want more room. Every once in a while we stumble across someone on the internet that has created a life hack or come up with an excellent idea to make the most of the space they have. Today, my friends, is another one of those days. Imgur user MidnightXII’s booth build has transformed a very average dining nook into a thing of functional beauty. He has taken a typical 6 person table out of the equation to create a comfy booth that seats 12 comfortably, just by converting the previously wasted space into a functional area for entertaining your guests.

Booths and banquettes are most often associated with modern and contemporary spaces, but this quaint country kitchen looks super sweet with booth seating for four. On top of its charming appearance, this booth also boasts practicality with a pair of large drawers built into each side.

According to designer Vanessa Deleon, for a family that loves to entertain, a built-in booth with island access is a great way to supply extra seating where everyone already gathers. “The island is always the heart of the kitchen, therefore people can congregate by the island and around the 30-inch high table versus a typical 36- or 42-inch bar. It’s especially nice with small children,” says Vanessa.

The last time I saw Gloria Steinem, she said something that stayed with me. She said, “the voting booth is the one place in America where everyone is equal.” No matter who you are, where you come from, what you look like, once you vote, your vote counts. And no one vote counts more than another. That simple truth got me out of bed this morning at 3:45 a.m., and onto a 6 a.m. flight to Reno, Nevada where I begin a five-state trip leading up to election day. My goal is to get every single person I meet in those states to show up to the polls on election day.

While redesigning an already narrow kitchen, designer Shirry Dolgin hoped to add a table without taking up a lot of space. “It was my goal to have a space that would allow the family to eat in the kitchen and not take away or make the kitchen feel small,” explains Shirry. “So instead of stopping the kitchen just after the sink and creating a peninsula with bar stools (the way it used to be), I continued a banquette and added the table and chairs.”

Bright and open, this kitchen features smart zones for every activity, including eating. Designer Terry Kenney says, “The table was created using a stainless steel box for the leg and a piece of Cambria quartz as the top. To help tie it to the rest of the space, we lined the exterior edges with the same cherry wood that was used in the kitchen cabinetry. The kitchen features lots of natural light, bright paint and open space, making it a great space with a family-focused eating area – I love this kitchen!”

Inspired by over-the-top transitional wainscoting throughout the house, this banquette takes on a more streamlined, transitional approach. “This house started as a contractor build house, and this was the space that was allocated for the dining table,” says designer Stacey Cohen. “We wanted to maximize it and make it family-friendly, and the only way to do that was with a custom table. The clients loved the table top, and the tulip bases came from tables we found at Ikea. The top is stained in the same gray stain as the floors, which gave it a rich color without being too much of a dramatic change. The banquette pulls out on each end to store placemats and kids’ stuff.”

Designer Jil Sonia McDonald hoped to make the most of her client’s space while still incorporating a beloved vintage table. A white and tangerine window seat with built-in storage was just the ticket. “We started with the client’s existing round table,” explains Jil. “Initially she was going to just use chairs in this area, but I suggested that a bench with storage would be more practical and comfortable.”

To make the most of an awkwardly shaped corner, designer Jane Ellison had to think outside of the box. “The walls are not right angles, so the bench and table are custom designed to fit,” says Jane. The Burmese carved wood mandala became the focal point in the space and mimics the Asian style of the custom table.

This reminds me of a table and three chairs that I once had and loved. When I bought it, someone asked why would anyone buy a table with 3 chairs?? Well, me, obviously. I then paired it with a cozy bench for two and it was the best place to sit and chat or have a cup of tea.

As you can see, there is plenty of wasted space behind the chairs and in the corners. This table only seats six, which if you like to entertain, is not nearly enough space.

Dining nooks are great space-savers.  You can accommodate more people in much less space compared to a traditional table and chairs.  Moreover, as you’ll see below, they easily accommodate 5 plus people (some up to 7 people).

This unit includes the wood table, 2 dining benches, corner bench and two chairs.  The L-shaped bench is 3 pieces so it can be re-configured to fit your corner space.  Moreover, this unit is free-standing so it can be placed away from a corner wall as well.

Before a redesign, this kitchen’s dining area was anything but cozy. After some smart planning by designer Jane Ellison, the stylish banquette that serves multiple purposes completely transformed the space. According to Jane, “Now the banquette is the most used area of the home for leisurely meals, work on laptops, games, art projects and homework. And with electrical outlets built into the banquette side, a much needed IT station is there when needed.”

“The kitchen was designed as the main hub for gathering and entertaining large groups,” says the room’s designer, Joseph Stabilito. “The owners wanted to keep the rustic quality of the original house but also wanted a more contemporary feel for the newer sections of the home that would blend in. So we used natural materials like wood and stone to add warmth, but in modern profiles. They specifically wanted a place for casual meals like breakfast, so I designed a banquette tucked into the corner by a nice window.”
