The benches under the windows they are elements that can be quite well in any area of the house. However, in the kitchen its functionality increases; and is that, thanks to them, you can configure beautiful annexed dining rooms.
On this occasion we will give you some ideas to put them into practice. We should take into account aspects such as colors and possible locations to choose the one that best suits our space and enjoy that magical corner for breakfast, lunch and dinner with the whole family.
Take advantage of natural light
One of the most obvious advantages of these seats under the window is that we will use the light much better. While in other rooms, such as a living room, this extra light can come in handy to create a reading corner, in this case it will be interesting to be able to get a dining area in the kitchen perfectly lit. Breakfasts and meals will never be the same again. However, remember that at night, this natural source of light will not work, so it would be a good idea to also opt for a nice low lamp to give privacy.
A round table to take advantage of space
There is no written rule regarding form and dimension. Your window and your kitchen will ask for one or the other. However, if you do not have too much space, it is interesting to opt for round tables. A bank can adapt without problems to the tables with this form, and thus you will get save space. However you should keep in mind that, although the round tables save space, they also eliminate space for each guest. Keep in mind how many places you need before buy a table for this corner.
Corner windows perfect for the occasion
If you are lucky enough to have the typical corner windows, those that occupy several walls, do not waste them. In this case, the banks under them may look good. A extra space to sit, creating a large bank for the whole family. It is evident that these banks are more complicated. While in the market you will find straight benches already made, those that have to mold to corners must be made to measure. You can, perhaps, build a workbench and cover it with wood, or go to someone who does custom furniture.
Combine your bench with chairs
Although the function of that bench is to sit in front of the table, the truth is that if you do not have very large windows, or many people live at home, you can combine them with chairs, yes, look carefully if you lose space when placing chairs move, this does not suit us. In addition, you should try that the style of both is not at odds. The wooden benches more rustic, can be very well with wooden tables, although they are different colors.
Question of textiles
The perfect touch for this special corner is the textile. Having natural light in your favor, you can play, without worrying, with textures, prints and colors. It’s just a matter of cheering up!
