Custom Banquette Gives Modern Kitchen an Eat-In Component
The owner wanted a place where his family could enjoy meals together, so designers added a custom banquette to give the kitchen an eat-in space, while the fun upholstery makes the space lively and casual. Although the main function of the banquette is to provide seating for the family, it serves the dual purpose of hiding the radiator in the home and was built to be easily taken apart and moved in case repairs need to be made.

Go with your changing tastes. When DIYer and stylist Jo Torrijos renovated her Craftsman bungalow kitchen in 2009, she installed cherry cabinets. She later grew tired of the look, but didn’t want to purchase new cabinets.
