Kitchen banquettes can add a cozy seating option as well as extend the cooking counter space as an alternative design to a center island.

Many kitchens are designed with perimeter counters and a center island. The center island serves as two functions – additional cook prep space and with pull-up bar stools, a casual place for a meal, homework or just chatting while the meal is being prepared.

But, let’s consider another option as you develop your space planning for your new kitchen or kitchen renovation.

You can have the best of both worlds!

A center island for cook prep and casual eating, PLUS a banquette for family meals.

Here are a few layouts you might consider:

A “Triple Play” – an island space for cook prep, banquette seating, AND a bar height counter for coffee/drinks. This design was done by Bilotta Kitchens.

Another alternative for a smaller kitchen instead of a center island, is just a banquette.
