Bench seats are versatile and functional. At the dining table, this slim piece of furniture offers the flexibility to fit a couple more guests. Placed in entryways, benches create a warm and welcoming first impression. Wherever they're positioned, these good-looking seats will fit well.
A dining bench tucks seamlessly away under the table, which makes it a great space saver. They’re a perfect solution for big families, allowing you to fit more people along a bench than you can with individual chairs. They’re great for entertaining too.
The dining bench should either be equal to the length of the table or slightly shorter. Full length benches are ideal for maximizing seating space and can be tucked-in to save space when it’s at a premium.
The standard bench height is generally between 18 and 20 inches (45 to 50 cm). The bench height refers to the distance from the seat to the ground. However, it does depend on the height of your table. It is essential that your bench is the right height to allow people to sit comfortably with their legs under the tabletop.
