A few weeks ago we talked about chairs in the kitchen — we love being able to pull up a hospitable seat for a guest! But some kitchens don't need chairs because they already have more substantial seating built in: Benches and booths! Here's a look at a few examples of built-in kitchen seating in real homes. TOP ROW1 Robert and Elizabeth's Soulful Sterling Place - Such a lovely bench and table! • 2 Robert and Elizabeth's Soulful Sterling Place - A view of the whole kitchen. • 3 Art & Chelsea's Delicious Kitchen Update - We love that red couch just outside Art and Chel's kitchen! • 4 Ulrika and Mark's Transformed Tudor - A lovely built-in windowseat with a view of the kitchen. • 5 Julie's Light-Filled Eat-In Corner - A corner booth where Julie's kids can hang out while she cooks. BOTTOM ROW6 Kyle's Colorful Boston Perch - Kyle's awesome homemade kitchen bench. • 7 Kyle's Colorful Boston Perch - An up-close of the cushions. • 8 Kristie's Thirties Tennessee Treasure - An old-fashioned breakfast booth. • 9 Hunter's First Home: An Exercise in DIY - A great built-in bench. • 10 Angelique's Sunlit Breakfast Nook - Maybe the best breakfast nook we've ever seen! I have an eating nook in my kitchen that seriously needs a makeover. These are all inspiring little snippets of ideas! What about you? Do you have a bench or nook in your kitchen?
