I love banquette seating! A great breakfast nook/family dining option that just looks good in any kitchen. Especially in its own little nook with lots of light, and lift-up seats to store kitchen/dining linens.
Many small living room revolve around tricking the eye into making the area appear more spacious. Such strategies can transform an area that feels cramped and claustrophobic into one that feels cozy and aesthetically pleasing.
