Kitchen banquettes are the perfect opportunity to bring in casual, functional style to a kitchen. They’re perfect for the morning coffee, homework, or a delicious dinner for the entire family. You can design a banquette to be a neutral counterpart in your kitchen or have it stand out with bright colors and textures, making it the star of the room.

This stylish banquette (below) uses lots of color, pattern, and texture. The sparkly chandelier above the table mimics the movement in the pillows, making this the most fun place to eat breakfast. I can imagine this corner was designed to inspire a creative family.

Congress Park Breakfast Nook

This banquette is framed with lots of cabinets, making this kitchen a dream for someone in need of storage. The nook takes advantage of the large windows, providing lots of natural light and a beautiful view to the trees outside. Burnt orange cushions and pillows bring in a bold pop of color against the neutral built-ins.

1902 House

If you’re an avid reader or do a lot of work from home, this lively, comfy banquette is the perfect spot for the work-at-home entrepreneur or for the kids to do homework. Sitting right next to large kitchen island full of seating, this banquette is also perfect for entertaining.

Shades of White
This bright, cozy corner features pretty, patterned pillows and matching fabric shades. You don’t have to have a large table to have a functional, stylish banquette. The round, black table, linen upholstery, and wood floors give off romantic vibes.
What They Did

The sparkly chandelier and tufted banquette exude glamour in this luxe kitchen and provides a comfy place for the family to gather any time of day. A neutral scheme with shimmery texture adds to this nook’s sophisticated appeal.

Deluxe in Alexandria

This large, classic kitchen features a gorgeous banquette along the window, providing multifunctional seating for at least eight people. It’s a great spot for holiday dinners, breakfast for slumber parties, or game nights with the entire family.
