Built-in seating adds beauty and function.
Built-in seating feels cozy and inviting – and it can be very versatile, providing not just an additional place to sit, but additional display space or even storage underneath. It can maximize space in a tight area or create a new casual place to read, have a meal, chat, or just look out the window.
Built-in seating can be manufactured to complement almost any building style. It can be upholstered or not; it can have simple and straight lines or lots of detail; it can have seat backs or not; it can have closed shelving inside, open shelving or no storage at all.
Best of all, built-in seating can go almost anywhere in your home:
- Most popular, in a breakfast room or kitchen, for added places at the casual family dining table
- In the window of a bedroom or living room, to create a lovely place to daydream and view the outdoors
- In the den or home office, for a quiet space to talk on the phone, answer emails or respond to texts
- In the foyer, to put on shoes and socks, and drop off your stuff when you come in the door, but do watch for clutter!
Built-in seating can also be a creative way to finish a room that looks a bit incomplete. It beautifully fills up an awkward space in a corner or completes a room plan near a window.
