There’s a wide style of bench plans below that include benches with and without backs. They’re built in a variety of wood and some are painted while others are stained. With all these options, I’m sure you’ll find the perfect bench plan for your home. That’s My Letter has built this useful shoe storage bench and is giving away the plan for free. Included are diagrams and step-by-step building instructions so even the most novice of builders can take on this project.
A dining table with benches provides for versatile seating since you can remove the furniture to another room and increase the seating space. Plus, you have options, like a three-piece dining set which can be propped in a corner with a bench on the third side or an L-shaped seat that can be placed in a nook, ideal for tiny kitchen or dining spaces. Or, you can choose a wood bench that looks like a backless couch with a cushioned top with hand rests on both sides, a sophisticated upholstery, and carved patterns in the body.

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.
