Blue Cushion Kitchen Nook for Stylish Idea
For banquettes, the standard height for the table is 30 inches and for the benches is 18 inches, leaving 12 inches from the top of the bench to the table surface. Let the table overlap the benches by 3 or 4 inches on each side. For more legroom, set the benches back a few inches and add a “heel kick” on the floor below the table overlap. Allow a minimum of 21 inches of table and seating width per person. Also allow 18 inches of seating depth, not counting the back support. For U-shape banquettes, allow 54 inches for each leg of the U and 78 inches for the rear bench. U shapes need more generous dimensions to avoid knee-squeezing corners.
