I’ve said it before: my home is small. We need to take advantage of each and every inch of our home. This is why I’m researching banquette style seating. It can be seating and storage ALL in one. That’s my kind of bench. I found this lovely space and decided I need to recreate it. Banquette seating is usually custom built and installed, but I have seen MANY people use the Expedit Shelving Unit from Ikea as a seat. Add some small furniture legs for height, some cushions to sit on, and some Expedit door inserts. Now you have a little DIY banquette set up! We are SERIOUSLY considering this DIY for our kitchen nook.
