Banquette is a small foot path like a seat or something that elevate us to sit along, which inside is upholstered bench or footbridge. Banquette usually used to maximize room. We can add a banquette in many rooms, like living room, dining room, bedroom, moreover kitchen and bathroom. You can make your banquette own yourself or just buy it. If you want to buy it, of course you should make sure that your choice is right and can be applied on your room. But, better you make own. That’s not hard t to make, I will share you how to build a banquette.
Remember, banquette not need to hug all available on the wall. It can be built-in, nook, or upholstered. It can be placed at the corner, in the middle of cabinet, or outside. It also not always rectangular but can be semicircular or circular, depend on the room space and shape, of course. It can be made with or without drawers. So many kinds, right? After knowing your choice, let start to build a banquette. You should measure your space and shape dimensions. Better if you know your materials first. I suggest you use mdf or plywood to make it easy. Start from the floor till its height. Sketch out some box you want to be and transfer your measurement and design to the user guide when you cut and assemble the boxes. Cutting on your material through your designs, then you will get front, back, bottom, and bottom sides. For top, open up and do on the last if you want open bench on top. But, if you want to make some drawers, better make the top and let the front open.
Finish you cutting and assemble the bench, try to stick out and make sure it cannot be ruin. But, better you try to stick out to your room wanna be then. Don’t glue first, you should paint it first. Then, add framing top only because you will use other materials for this later. After that, install it. Make sure the paint is suit and not need to repaint. Add bed-board for countertop. Look again, is that enough good? If done, add bed and some pillow.
