Buying Guide

An upholstered dining bench with back is a great addition to any home. It's not just comfortable, but it's also a great seating to use when bonding with friends and family. These days, there are plenty of models to choose from. This means choosing the right one can be tricky. In this article, we are going to cover what to look for in an excellent upholstered dining bench with back.

Since there are different varieties of upholstered dining benches with back, knowing the style you want can immensely help narrow down your choices. Each style works great for a particular situation.

  • If you want an upholstered dining bench with back that has a formal look, then you'd want something that has a high back. Keep in mind that high-backed dining benches will visually take-up more space.
  • If you have a small room, then a low back is preferable. Low back means it has a low profile, which then makes the room feel bigger.
  • If you want a relaxed feel, then a low back with a soft fabric works great. Low back is often associated with being laid back, and the sight of a soft fabric is just incredibly tempting.

Some types of upholstered dining benches will be more comfortable than others. Generally, too much comfort would mean using softer and weaker fabric, which then has a significant impact on longevity. On the other hand, the stronger the fabric, the less comfortable it will be. It's up to you to find the right balance between durability and comfort.

When it comes to comfort, another thing that you must check is the backrest. The backrest has a significant impact on how comfortable the upholstered dining bench will be. If you plan on sitting for an extended period in the upholstered dining bench with back, then you'd want something that’s back-friendly. This means choosing an upholstered dining bench with the right backrest height, which follows the contours of your back.

If you have no plans of sitting too long on the upholstered dining bench with back, then you can prioritize other factors such as durability and style.

When it comes to durability, your primary concern should focus on the product's craftsmanship and materials. When it comes to the materials of an upholstered dining bench with back, there are two major things to check: the fabric and the frame.

  • Wood and metal are two of the most popularly used materials for the frame. Generally, real wood is elegant and ages pretty well. On the downside, it will usually be more expensive and will require more maintenance. Metal frames are typically cheaper than wood. It also requires lower maintenance. On the downside, metal frames don't age well, and they don't look as luxurious compared to real wood.
  • You have plenty of options when it comes to the fabric of an upholstered dining bench with back from silk to leather. There's typically a trade-off between comfort and durability. It's up to you to find the right balance for you.

So, that's it for now. There are other factors that are also worth checking out but starting with the ones we mentioned above is a good start.
