Houzz is the new way to design your home.
I don't like this so much, but this is what the present design calls for. Note pop-out on closest side. Drawers underneath are good, but this is why we need some sort of right angle.
Awfully plain, but on the right path
Alternatively, build against cabinet and have right angle be on right side, add bench, then build another right angle on left. Space between nook and door needs to be dealt with then...
Another example of a "no", but idea about storage behind seatbacks.
Too blocky but another idea...
Plain and simple, with slab-face drawers fronts. Note about outlets.
Note about ergonomics.
Note bench distance to back wall.
And the u comes back into the kitchen...
No right angle!
So more of a window seat than a bench, but this looks doable with no arms.
WHOA - NO built-in. This works well too...
Good bench idea!!! Could get right angle on right side then?
Good look. Open shelving? Probably not. But think of this as a bench, no right angles.
Clear chairs - clever.
Backless stools for outer chairs.
