Kitchen/Breakfast Room

This condo was design from a raw shell, located in Seattle WA. If you are considering a renovation of a condo space please call us to discuss your needs. Please note that due to that volume of interest we do not answer basic questions about materials, specifications, construction methods, or paint colors thank you for taking the time to review our projects.

what are the dimensions of this banquette? Are the owners happy with it or is it uncomfortable to have such a large seat for formal dining (slouch factor with back rest so far away).... Thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Where and How to Toss the Throw Pillows
This banquette is a great space saver. It serves as a sofa and as table seating, and a simple rearrangement of pillows can change the way it functions. (SIDE NOTE: I do sense a few karate chops happening here, but it looks good. I think I'll let my rule slide here).
A deep banquette doubles as a comfortable lounge spot on lazy Sunday mornings.
Scheer & Co. added this to 9 Window Seats That Command Attention
There's no reason not to make a window seat an actual sofa for maximum comfort. I'm seeing this idea working well in a small space — a studio apartment, for instance — where every piece of furniture has to function in several different ways. Having friends over and need lots of seating? Use it as a sofa. Having an intimate dinner? Pull up a table. Have an overnight guest? A soft built-in sofa is so much better than a blow-up mattress.

Kathryn Peltier Design added this to Kitchen Banquettes: Explaining the Buffet of Options
Guest bed. Although you would probably not want this in a kitchen, a banquette can double as a guest bed, if it’s deep enough. This is quite easy to accomplish if you build a platform and use twin-size mattresses. Consider, however, that this will not provide a comfortable back for diners unless you load it with throw pillows.When to use: When a space can be multifunctional and guest space is at a premium.

Love the built-in couch that can double as comfortable sleeping -- could build the base and add good, twin-sized mattresses covered in sturdy cotton duck. To keep it looking more like a couch than a day bed, make upholstered, removable back cushions.
