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.
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.
