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.”

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.

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.”

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.

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.”

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.

According to designer Barry Dixon, this home featured a charming Arts and Crafts/revival period style, which he hoped to maintain in his kitchen update. “The period lines of the banquette honor the home’s history, yet the modern fabrics and bright colors keep it all fresh,” says Barry. “Even the documentary wall covering was custom printed in bold citrus colors. In the end, this cozy corner feels casual and modern, yet reverent to a period home.”

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.”
