Design Tip: Make the Most of the Space You Have

The family enjoyed everyday meals at the kitchen table, but the table and chairs felt “lost” in the large area. There was a long, empty space along the wall (141 inches to be exact), below a window that was crying out for some attention.

So, we built her a window seat. In doing this we defined the eating area, creating a focal point that also provides additional seating when guests arrive. The addition of the bench cushion and accent pillow tie in with the rest of the décor.
