4 Seating Options to Make the Most out of your Kitchen Diner

Seating is one of the most important things to consider in a kitchen diner. After all, you and your family have got to sit somewhere to eat your meals.

So what options are available to you? We’ve picked our 4 top seating ideas so you can have a stylish and practical kitchen diner.

Create a breakfast bench

A breakfast bench is a great way to add seating in your kitchen diner. It’s a comfy spot to set yourself up for the day, but you can use it for every meal. Also, it’s a good spot for you to keep a watch over the children doing their homework while you’re cooking dinner.


If you’ve got a breakfast bar or island in your kitchen diner, stools look perfect. They give a modern feel to the kitchen and are easy to put away when you’re not using them. Get gas-lift stools that you can raise and lower to meet everyone’s needs, plus you can tuck them away under the overhang when they’re not in use.

Stylish chairs

If you’ve got a low-level breakfast bar or integrated table in your kitchen, you can’t go wrong with a good old fashioned chair. Pick something that is easy to clean, especially if you’ll only use the area for breakfasts and quick lunches. But make sure you don’t sacrifice style.

Splash out on a banquette

A banquette is a beautiful permanent seating option for your kitchen diner. Integrating it with your island assures that it will never look out of place, and it offers a cosy nook that is perfect for any meal of the day. Make sure you add padded seating if you’re going to use it for more formal meals.
