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.
Heavy, clunky kitchen tools, like cutting boards and colanders, fit awkwardly into cabinets — so why not hang 'em on the outside instead? This way they'll be easy to grab and put away. See more at Far Above Rubies » - HouseBeautiful.com
