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.

Whether you have a formal dining room or a small eat-in kitchen, adding a bench instead of individual chairs can be a great choice for many reasons. Not only can it be more economical (depending on how large your table is, the cost of your chairs can really add up!), but it can also make for a more versatile seating arrangement. Plus, you can often tuck the bench under the table and out of the way if you need more floor space.
