One feature Ben is really excited about is the kitchen's banquette seating. He explains, "my favorite spot in the kitchen is right here. Everybody likes to congregate in the kitchen, so this is a great place to have the banquette right in front of the television." He equates it with going to a restaurant, "a lot of times it's my preference is to sit in a booth, as opposed to sitting at a table." On the backside of the banquette is an artistic feature that goes with the home's water theme. The design etched into the frosted-glass panels provides a very tranquil water-like feel.
