Discover why dining benches save more space than chairs and the latest bench features to look out for
Benches save more space than chairs
Benches tuck under tables
Consider an upholstered bench for extra comfort
A bench with a back offers more support
A style with a back and arms will offer even more support, but if it's to regularly hold more than two people, getting everyone in and out of it, will entail a little shuffling. To make things easier look out for a model with lowish arms.
If you decide to go with a bench with no back or arms, go for two chairs at the top of and bottom of the table with good support, so that you have a more ergonomic alternative when required.
A space-saving bench with storage
These storage benches will be heavier to lift up and more awkward to move around though, so this is really only an option if you plan to place your bench and leave it. When it comes to access, you will need to move the table instead of the bench to get seated upon it.
