Adding a dining bench to your home is an excellent way of adding functional space while maintaining a stylish and inviting aesthetic. There are so many ways to decorate your home with these kinds of benches, here are different options:
1. One long bench in front of a window
The best thing about using the dining benches instead of chairs is leaving more floor space to add additional seating when needed. If you have a big enough living room, there might be space for one long bench in front of the window, which can work perfectly for this design style. People also use it as extra storage by placing baskets behind the seats or underneath the seat where it’s hidden from sight and still easily accessible. It’s also less expensive than chairs.
2. Under a window
Another neat idea is placing the dining bench under a window because it will work well in small homes where you don’t have much space for oversized furniture like couches and armchairs. Placing one or multiple benches in your home can free up some much-needed floor space while still making use of that area under the windows. The extra storage underneath or behind the seats always comes in handy when you need it!
3. One long bench out of two separate benches
If you want to save up on space but still want your dining room to look stylish, perfectly suitable for this design style are two separate benches that make one long bench when pushed together. When they are out of sight, you can also use them as extra storage space under one another where you can keep books or other items. This is also an excellent option if you’re on the lookout for something modern with an industrial touch to it.
4. Bench seat in front of a table
Another great idea for decorating your home is using the dining bench in front of a table (or multiple tables if needed). This pretty much works like two chairs which together form a bench seat in front of the table(s), but this way is more stylish and inviting because benches look more contemporary than chairs do. The dining bench is the best option when the room already has lots of furniture, especially sofas. You can put it against any wall or corner in your house where it will work well.
5. Corner bench seat
If you have a corner in your living room that’s never been used, then this is the idea just for you. It can perfectly suit any kind of ambiance and style, but it might be best if the dining bench is placed against the window so that light just flows through it. You can also put your books there or use them as extra storage space underneath or behind the seats, as mentioned previously. There are plenty of ways to make good use of this kind of seating arrangement.
6. One long bench along two walls with different tables on each one
This design style works perfectly when you want to fill up two empty walls in your dining room with seating arrangements because you can put a bench against each wall, one at the corner of each, facing each other. But you can also put them up-close and face one wall if that suits your style more.
Whatever your dining room looks like, you can easily add a touch of rustic industrial style with modern benches instead of chairs since they look really inviting and stylish. There are plenty of ways to use them in your home, and the best thing is that they add extra seating when needed.
