Family Friendly Friday – Breakfast Room Banquettes
Today I wanted show you some great Banquette ideas for your Breakfast Room!
Curve appeal – love this curved wall behind the banquette area. Quick tip for a more Family Friendly option place boxes with color on shelves to house papers and magazines. Add cookbooks and photos of family up top!

Or opt for a half wall instead allows more natural light in…
Have a simple upholstered back to give a soft and luxurious feel…. durable fabrics like vinyl and indoor/outdoor fabrics will make it more kid-friendly

For a more formal area use a very clean gallery effect, gives it dining room appeal
Diner style with a booth feel but give it a little glam to bring it to life..
