Are you interested in adding kitchen seating bench to create an eat-in kitchen? If you are, then you have come to the right place at the right time. Today, we will share some tips you can optimize to establish a kitchen banquette for a cozy dining nook where your family can gather for meals and other activities. Here they are!
With banquette seating arrangement, even your smaller kitchen can still manage to create the comfort. Compared to table-and-chairs set, a kitchen banquette will occupy only less than half the floor space the standard set require while seating the same number of people. There are many banquette layouts you can choose, such as the standard restaurant booth setup, U-shapes, L-shapes, semicircles, and even hybrids. You can also go for kitchen seating bench with storage to expand storage capacity without taking up more space.
Ideally, the standard height of the table for a banquette is 30 inches and the height of benches is 18 inches. The 12 inches gap between top of the bench and the table top surface usually will suffice even for adults. Let the table overlap the kitchen benches by 3 to 4 inches on every side. If you wish to add more legroom, place the bench seating back a few inches and then have a “heel kick” added on the floor under the table overlap.
For every person to seat comfortable, provide at least 21 inches of seating and table width per person. Apart from that, allow 18 inches for seating depth, excluding the back support. Go for a pedestal table to avoid knocking knees, which is also suitable to use in a smaller kitchen nook with corner banquette arrangement. With pedestal table for kitchen corner bench seating with storage, you can also make room for extra one or two chairs.
