Stylish Dining Benches that have that WOW Factor
If you like to catch up with family and socialise with friends over delicious food, benches can be a better choice than chairs as they fit more people comfortably than chairs would in the same space. They're affordable and comfortable so they're a great investment and we're sure you'll find your guests happy to relax and chat at the table after dinner. They're also brilliant space savers. If your rectangular dining table is by a wall the benches will sit flat against it so your table can be closer giving you a bit more floor space. We also offer storage benches so you can invisibly pack away place mats and accessories when they're not in use.
Not ready to make the switch to benches? Think you'll miss having chairs? We have the solution! Check out our sets that feature a dining table with bench seat and chairs. Choosing both may seem unusual at first but we're sure you'll see it really is the best of both worlds when you see the sets that we have available.
How to Keep Your Dining Benches Looking Good
Once you've brought home your new bench seat dining table you'll want to keep it looking its best. To protect the table we'd recommend either a tablecloth or wiping it down after every meal so food spills don't build up. Wiping down after each meal would also work if you've opted for a wood finish storage bench. You could also top your bench with colourful cushions as you can wash the cover easily if they get dirty. This will not only help protect them from spills but it will also provide added comfort and give you the option to make a bold colour statement.
If you choose an upholstery top you'll have to make sure you've got the right cleaning materials. You should always test these in an inconspicuous area so you know they won't cause any marking. There are options to pretreat your bench upholstery to help protect it from stains and you should have something on hand for spot cleaning. There will always be accidental spills from food and drink no matter how careful you are and, in these cases, you should immediately clean up as much of the spill as possible with a clean cloth then use your preferred cleaning fluid.
If you let the spills sit they're more likely to stain. To help prevent general fading and wear and tear we recommend regularly hoovering your upholstery and wiping down other surfaces with a dry cloth to remove dust and dirt. If you have pets who make their way onto the benches it's a good idea to regularly remove pet hair.
