A Built-In Dining Bench Saves Space Inside This Narrow House

A built-in dining bench saves space in a narrow home.

Custom design solutions, like a built-in dining bench, are one way to make the most out of the available space in a narrow house.

When London Atelier designed the interior of this townhouse, they had to think about space carefully as the home was quite narrow. Their solution was to design a custom dining area that includes a built-in bench.

The built-in dining bench, which is set back into the wall, allows for the inclusion of a dining table and chairs, minimizing the impact on people walking from the stairs to the living room. Meanwhile, the curved dining table and upholstered bench cushions add a softer more casual element for the family of four that live in the home.
