Table - I build a banquette in my modern kitchen and am having a lot of trouble finding a table that fits. Need a table like this 36 x 50. The table in this photo would be perfect. Please let me know as I am at my wits end and now wish I did an Island instead.

Don't regret what you did!

I just did a banquette this year in my kitchen and had the same difficulty you did. I also made mine "L" shaped and wanted a rectangular pedestal table. I searched a long time online, and while I found them, I didn't find them in my budget.

If you can't find anything online, start looking in resale stores. You may have to "make" your own or get assistance from a family member or friend to do so. My kitchen was redecorated in a cottage style and I ended up buying an antique Singer sewing machine base and attaching a board to the top to get the diameters I wanted.

If you click on the words below the picture under here, you can see what I ended up with. It is hard to find very specific things, but I have found sometimes you have to alter what it is you are looking for. If what you want is a table similar to the one in the photo posted, then search the internet for "mid-century pedestal table". You may have to look at some websites for manufacturers that will allow you to custom make something with a pedestal and table top to your specifications. I know there are restaurant retailers online for tables with separate tops and bases.




Good luck!

This look can be established with engineered flooring. I dislike engineered flooring because of its poor durability, and makes a devastating refinishing process. Think thin layer of real wood on top of engineered wood. You should be able to find this flooring in a showroom.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Breakfast Nooks, Sunny Side Up
1. Use light colors and glossy finishes. Not only does this bright nook receive lots of natural light from the large windows, but it gets extra glow from the cabinet paint color. The icing on the cake is the white tile backsplash, which continues behind the booth and bounces the light around.
Start a stash of essentials. There is nothing worse than arriving at your new house and having to scramble to find basics like toilet paper, pajamas and coffee for the morning. Pick a spot to begin collecting all of those little items you will want access to right away when you move (a cleaned-out cupboard works nicely) so you can organize your essentials even as you are still using them.Here are some ideas to get you started:One stack of dishes or a set of disposablesA teakettle and French-press coffee makerBasic tools (screwdrivers, a hammer etc.)Trash bagsBox cuttersLightbulbsA few rolls of toilet paper and paper towelsA shower curtainBath towelsA set of sheets for each bedCurtains for the bedrooms (if you know the windows will be bare)Favorite snacksA fun movie to watch on your laptop the first nightTell us: What went right (and wrong) in your last move?
