What Houzz contributors are saying:
Banquettes. It’s ideal to have everyone gathered around the table, sharing a meal, but this can be tricky if your kitchen doesn’t have room for a big dining table. Enter banquettes. Not only do they save space by being built into the wall, but they also fit many more little bodies. As for getting them to eat their vegetables, that one’s on you.
Here is a small dining nook off the kitchen where built-in seating is tucked under the two windows. The light and the seating anchor the space and draw one to the corner. It's easy to see the table being a site not only for meals, but also reading the paper, doing homework and other activities.
