DIY banquette seating that makes cozy dining easy to achieve

Built-in banquette seating has been taking over designers’ kitchens in recent months. If you’ve found yourself in a modern dining area lately, it’s likely there was a bench on one side of the table which, whether curved or straight, promises a relaxed and sociable meal. Yet, hiring a kitchen maker to install banquette seating in your home can come at cost and as a result, many of us are turning to our own DIY skills instead. 

The rising trend of banquette seating is part of a wider move towards creating more convivial spaces in the home, especially in non-traditional areas like a modern kitchen. After several years of Covid restrictions, many of us are wanting to make our homes more conducive to a social and fun atmosphere aided through design by curved lines, comfy seating and ambient lighting.
