Banquette as only dining area?
My son is closing on his first home, a split level that needs updating. We are working on making the kitchen, dining, living room area work for him. He currently uses the bar in his apartment for meals and is adding one to his new kitchen. He also needs a table in the dining area. Due to space limitations, we are considering an L shaped banquette with half wall on the short side to extend the adjoining living room wall a bit. I think this will create a bit more delineation between the rooms without closing in the small area. The living room side will be a bookcase. Since there is no other dining area in the home, do you think it is a mistake to do a built-in banquette?
