Buying Guide

Dining chairs are popular seating options in dining rooms, but more and more homeowners are looking for alternatives as they take up a lot of room. Also, the number of people that can fit around the dining table will depend on the chairs that are available.

Wooden dining benches with backrests are a comfortable seating solution that’s ideal regardless of the size of your space! A dining bench made of wood can be tucked seamlessly under a table, so it’s an excellent space-saver. At the same time, dining benches are also the best solution for a large family with their ability to fit more people along a bench compared to individual chairs.

What's more, lots of benches come with built-in storage under the seat. They're very handy in most cases, especially when the dining area is rather small and additional storage is necessary. If you have enough storage space in your dining room, then you can simply forego this aspect as it also comes with a downside: it can make the dining benches look bulky and chunky.

If you want the most comfortable dining seating solution, then consider getting a corner bench. It's designed to suit a table with pedestal legs. It also occupies the empty corner in your living room and provides you with more room at the center of your dining space.

Dining benches can be right-handed or left-handed. A left-handed unit has a longer side that's on the left. As for the right-handed option, it’s longer on the right side.

Start by measuring your table top’s length and height. If the table has an extension leaf, then measure the length of the table with the leaf extended. To get the right dimensions, you also need to decide whether you want a dining bench that can be tucked under your dining table or you can simply use your table’s full length. For those who have a limited amount of space to work with, we recommend you get the measurements in between your table’s legs. Give an allowance of 10 cm, so the bench can be tucked in without knocking the legs.
