A bench can be an excellent addition to your kitchen because it creates a good gathering spot for your family and of course friends, but mostly because it is a good way to reduce the amount of clutter. When you have a small kitchen, space is of the issue and dining chairs are not an answer to your problem. Dining chairs have to be pushed under the table, which makes it difficult to use a tablecloth. Neither will you be able to move the chairs under the table without shifting it. The bench is becoming more and more popular in interior decors and the kitchen makes no exception. This piece of furniture has a lot to offer.
Not just for picnics
Although until now benches were used exclusively for public places, now they are increasingly used for interior decoration purposes. But what makes them such a good choice for your kitchen? Unlike chairs, these seating pieces offer you the possibility to move freely around the table and implicitly use a longer tablecloth without having to worry that something is in the way. The piece of furniture is designed in such a way that you can use the space more efficiently. In addition to the fact that you eliminate the need for clearance, you actually make seating possible in areas where there is no room at all.
Casual dining is now possible
This seat will allow you to seat many more people at the table, being ideal for large families. Just think that you can now eat breakfast together with your family, not to mention that you are able to connect with each other in a different way. Bench seating does not obstruct the view so that you can communicate more efficiently. On the other hand, you can organize a festive dinner and invite your friends as well because you will have plenty of room. Even though the seat does not have a back, this will not be a major issue for your guests.
Complements the interior décor
The recliner-like piece of furniture looks great in spaces where the windows are high. Take advantage and place the seating all around because this will give the impression of an open space. By adding comfy pillows, the space will not feel too claustrophobic, not to mention that the natural light will get in. Additionally, the bench furniture will definitely balance the décor. What you should do is attach the seat to the kitchen island in order to eliminate the traffic flow.
Find the right choice
The fact is that finding an attractive table to service the bench can become a challenge. You can either consider a pedestal table or at least one that does not have legs at all the corners because you will hit them every time with your legs. Apart from this, you should make sure that the depth of the bench should be at least 24 inches in order to be able to sit comfortably and make sure that the upholstery is washable.
