We have never had a problem with it… I would suggest "padding" it with lots of cushions though if you have small children who might get rowdy on it? More to help with bonked heads… But I have a slew of kids here all the time, and it has never been an issue :)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The built-in sitting area is a great use of space in the family room. It doesn't take up as much room as movable furniture and utilizes the corner without blocking the amazing Pacific Ocean view.
