Custom Banquette 
"Make every inch count with an L-shaped bench," says Jessica. "Mine is made of MDF with tongue-and-groove paneling for dimension."


Comfy & Stain-Resistant 
"I use outdoor fabrics inside because they're so easy to clean and resist stains and spills," she says. "And I pile on the pillows." (She has 10 here!)

Overscale Accents 
A large piece of art and an industrial light from Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co. offer impact in a small space.

Extra Storage 
Add a flip-top lid to the seats with piano hinges. "We store everything from holiday decor to extra rolls of paper towels in there," says Jessica. "It's so handy."
