Assadi traditional-kitchen


The Assadi family had a classic Queen Anne home that was broken up into small living spaces. We removed walls and re-configured the space to incorporate the kitchen, the pantry, the eating nook and the TV/homework area for the kids.

Does anyone know how much the bench, table, chairs and labor costs for - I was thinking of converting my dinning area into more usable spaces for my kids to their homeworks, arts, and at the same time a dinning area.

The bench was constructed using materials from the cabinet company to match the cabinets, which is more expensive than building it and painting it on site. The cushions were custom made. The table was custom fabricated for the space. The table legs and chairs were purchased and finished by the homeowner. Including labor and all the custom materials, this cost about $4000.

8' long - gave us only 15" clearance on either end but we didn't want to give up any more kitchen space.

This is custom built on site. We used cabinet parts (finished by the cabinet company) to make the legs and the skirt. The butcher block was custom cut to fit the space so that there would be enough room to slide in on both ends. In this case, the table was 42" wide x 65" long.

We just created a banquette in our kitchen, this looks like the perfect table and table size we have been looking for! Where is it from and what size is it?

Kristie Barnett, The Decorologist added this to 8 Homework Areas That Make Back-to-School Rock
The breakfast table or dining table is a great place to designate as your official homework area. You can prepare dinner and keep your eyes on your little workers at the same time.

Could a homework area be more than a desk? Desks imply restraint and confinement. Sometimes you need to spread out to think. But, then make it easy to store and put away. need some long/wide drawers for poster sized projects.
