Update your home with fixed banquette seating

With more and more people working from home, cancelling holidays and staying inside to keep healthy this year – there’s never been a better time to transform your home into the comfortable and tranquil space you need it to be.

Fixed banquette seating is a great way to add comfort and luxury to your home, creating a unique, modern look with space-saving qualities too.

If you’re considering some new seating for your home, we’ve got a few ideas up our sleeves for how fixed banquette seating could work for you.

Modern dining space

It’s time to rethink the traditional dining table and chair setup, and consider chic and cosy banquette seating instead. All your favourite restaurants utilise the elegant design of fixed seating, so why not introduce it into your home as well?

Whether you favour statement décor or you prefer to keep things understated – the banquette design can suit any style. You can tailor the size and shape of your banquette to fit seamlessly into your dining room, creating a luxurious and modern style without compromising on comfort.

Window reading bench

Whether you’re furloughed or working from home, or you’re just spending a few more weekends indoors – many of us are enjoying a little bit of extra down time at the moment, and what better way to spend your new free time than by curling up with a good book?

A simple banquette bench in your favourite window can add some additional seating to a room without taking up valuable space. Add a few cushions and throws and your window bench becomes a cosy and relaxing corner for you to unwind with a good book and a cup of tea.

Kitchen breakfast nook

If a dining table isn’t an option in your home, you could consider a little breakfast nook instead. A small corner of the kitchen or an unused space in your home could be the perfect spot for some banquette seating and a small table.

Whether you want somewhere to eat breakfast with your partner, or a relaxing space to enjoy a coffee break when working from home – a kitchen breakfast nook could be the perfect addition to your home.

Handy storage solutions

Fixed banquette seating isn’t just beautiful, it’s practical as well.

While your pretty glassware deserves a space on your shelves, the questionable crockery you got for Christmas perhaps doesn’t. A banquette bench with cupboards underneath is the perfect storage solution to pack away anything you’d rather keep hidden – especially if you’re short on space.

If your banquette seating is against the wall, you could also consider adding shelves above it for even more storage. This is particularly ideal if you’ve got high ceilings.
