I love banquette seating! A great breakfast nook/family dining option that just looks good in any kitchen. Especially in its own little nook with lots of light, and lift-up seats to store kitchen/dining linens.
white risers with wood grain treads and matching colors painted on wooden floor would work nicely in a foyer have always loved winding staircases from the days of Zigfeld Follies when the beautiful girls were lined up all way down stairs .
Transitional White Staircase with Reclaimed-Oak Plank FlooringSleek new balusters and an iron railing modernize the entry’s winding staircase. A table from Joyce Horn Antiques rests on reclaimed-oak plank floors from Custom Floors Unlimited.
Simple built-in to create a mudroom and/or storage anywhere from an entry, to kids room or in a laundry room by adding shelves or a deeper bench for sitting. Put drawers under bench or have the seat lift up to store things.
