Built-in Seating

ADD EXTRA SEATING AND STORAGE

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 for pillows 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.

There are many options for built-in seating: It 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.

WHERE TO ADD BUILT-IN SEATING

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!

CREATE A COZY CORNER

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

This season, consider adding built-in seating to your home!
