DIY Banquette

Build Your Own Banquette — With Ikea Cabinets!

With their hearts set on building a cozy banquette with plenty of storage, Cape 27 blogger Jessie and and husband Rick got creative. To maximize every inch of their banquette, they ran straight to Ikea's kitchen department, where they found an unlikely solution for their storage needs.

Turns out, Ikea's 30-by-15-inch Akurum Cabinets — designed to go above refrigerators — work just as well at the bottom of a banquette!

Flanked with even more Ikea cabinetry and floating shelves, this storage-happy dining nook has design and organizational appeal.

Looking to do something similar in your dining room? Check out Cape 27 for a breakdown of Jessie and Rick's beautiful and functional DIY banquette. For inspiring renovation ideas that go beyond the dining room, visit our Home Makeover Heroes board on Pinterest!
