Having a bench, instead of dining chairs, at your dining table can actually do a lot for your space. It makes the dining area look more spacious, because you are doing away with visual volume in the form of seat backs. Benches are also useful for squeezing in more people around the table — good when you have guests over! Also, in an open-concept dining area, having a bench doesn’t break the visual flow between spaces, since it is low-slung.

Since most of us seem to be accustomed to the idea of an eating setting that is surrounded by chairs of different sizes, shapes, and designs, it is hard to turn to a dining table with benches and rationalize the decision to have one in your house. However, you should not overlook the fact that the standard dining configuration may not always be an option, especially if your living or kitchen areas aren’t well endowed with space.
