We recently added a built-in Banquette to our 120 square foot kitchen. We are really enjoying all the extra seating the new banquette created. The seat of our banquette opens up for extra storage. What a difference it makes to our tiny cape! The previous home owners didn’t have a dining table in this small kitchen and now we can seat eight people and have squeezed 10 kids around this spot. We did some major renovations to this kitchen too- cabinet refacing and tile.
