Covering a kitchen nook bench with vinyl is a stylish solution, especially in the pale blue. What a great idea if kids are to eat often at this table. Simply wipe away any mess and the space is back to pretty...how convenient.
I like mix of three pane and blank upper pane (shown below) for windows.. the three part window comes to ceiling. The extent of window depth to floor would be to bench or seating height (not back of chair as seen here.)
