What Style of Table Can Be Used With Corner Booth Seats in Dining Nooks?

Booth or banquette seating is a favourite option for a kitchen in which you'd like to make the best use of a corner space. The style of table that you use to outfit this set-up may vary, but each of these tables has a few elements in common, which allows the table to fit into this space and allows you to make the best advantage of this kitchen table set-up.

Shape and Size

Because of the position of the booth in the corner of the kitchen, one of the best ways to make maximum use of this space is to find a table that conforms with the square shape that the booths against the wall form. Look for rectangle-shaped tables that are slightly shorter than the end of the bench. which allows the table to fit within the framework of the booth while keeping the table and any chairs you place around it in addition to the booth seats from taking up extra floor space. Additionally, ensure that the table you choose is high enough for you to sit and eat comfortably. Sometimes booths can be quite low. Measure the height of your booth before going out to shop for the table.


The materials from which your booth table is made should be influenced by your kitchen decor. If you've chosen a retro 1950s style for the dining nook, choose a chrome table. For the bistro-style nook, gravitate toward a wooden table along with wooden benches. Often these booth table sets come with a table already, matching the style of the table with the booth seating surrounding it easier.


In many instances, the booth seats are not the only seating that you have around the booth table. Often there are chairs placed on the side of the table opposite the booth. That being the case, look for a table that allows you to comfortably move your feet and push in the chairs. Test your chairs by pushing them under the table if possible. See that they fit between the table legs and not outside of them.


While the rectangle-shaped table offers the best use of the dining nook arrangement, you don't necessarily have to choose a rectangle-shaped table. If your decorating preferences dictate that you choose a rounded table instead, look for one that's oblong in shape. Pulling this look off is easier if the end of the table is pressed against the wall and there is a booth on only one side of the table instead of the "L-shape" that often features prominently in booth or banquette seating.
