Reasons for choosing banquette instead of chairs for dining rooms

If you think of an elegant dinner table, you will think immediately of a impressive solid wood table and some elegant chairs which will make of your dinner area a great place where you can welcome your guests. These days I have visited an aunt of mine and I loved to sit in her kitchen where she has a comfortable banquette.

I remember that the moment she bought it she had thought of the space in the kitchen. She is an excellent cooker and she has always wanted to have a spacious kitchen. So, instead of using some chairs she used this banquette. She saved a lot of space and you can feel very comfortable and cozy when you sit at the table.

Everything can look more comfortable and friendly around a dinner table when you are sitting on a banquette. A chair can be less comfortable and does not offer you too many chances to take a comfortable position.(1st picture).

The use of banquette can also complete or integrate itself into a certain design style or atmosphere, like a rustic one for example.

If you have a simple colored dining room, a colored banquette can be the item which will bring color and more optimism to this room.

The curved shape of a banquette is even perfect for those round outdoor tables where you can spend relaxing moments with your family or friends while you admire a marine décor.As you can see a banquette seems to come with a lot of advantages and perhaps it is a good reason for people to use more than some chairs.{all pics from decorati}
