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.
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.

A very space-saving feature of dining tables with benches that you may unknowingly overlook is their storage capacity. For instance, ottomans can have a box or drawers beneath the seat. A pew-like bench may also come with drawers. You will find many designs, style, and finishing options in materials like wood, plastic, wicker, metal, and leather.
