Banquette and Breakfast Table





kitchen1

Materials: AKURUM refrigerator cabinets, NUMERAR countertop

We had an awkward nook in our kitchen, but it had potential to be a great breakfast spot with a little customizing. Like most people we were working on a budget and to get a millworker to custom a banquette and table was not in our cards.

We used the Akurum top refrigerator cabinets as the base for our banquette. The overall height of this cabinet is 15″ and it was perfect with a 3″ upholstered top to give us a total seat height of 18″. There’s no way we could have achieved this for the cost of a couple cabinets and custom cushion.

We searched high and low for the perfect oval table, but after months online and visiting local stores we decided to make it ourselves. We purchased an oak Numerar countertop and cut it down to approx 32″x40″. We purchased a table base from a local restaurant furniture supplier and voilà, the perfect table for our awkward nook!
