Room for More Stretched across every inch of spare wall, this U-shape banquette maximizes both seating and table space. A long bench placed on the empty side of the table was painted white, allowing it to blend with the floor and the base of the banquette. Storage drawers beneath the bench provide spots to stow away table linens, serving platters, and other dining odds and ends.
Contemporary Kitchen: TIP- Wire your drawers. Do you need your technology while you cook, perhaps to look up recipes or cooking hints, make cooking notes, play music or make diary entries? A powered drawer can keep your electronics off the counter and away from cooking mess and moisture and can charge them at the same time.
