Bench seating: How can it save space?

Whether you’re looking to save space in your home or hospitality venue, we take a look at why bench seating could be the best option for you.

Bench seating at home

If you’re looking for a space-saving option for your dining room, bench seating could be perfect. Dining chairs can make a small room appear cluttered due to their size and design, whereas benches have clean lines which enables them to seamlessly blend in with their surroundings. In addition to this, benches can be pushed under the table when not in use which instantly creates extra space.

A bench that seats three will take up the same area as two single chairs, which provides extra seating in what could be a compact dining space. This is ideal for people who like to entertain but don’t have room for a large table and lots of chairs. You could also opt for benches with storage space built in which will help you to hide away items that are otherwise taking up space in your home.

Bench seating in hospitality venues

The advantages of bench seating in a hospitality setting are very similar to those of having it at home. Benches will provide seating for more customers without taking up additional space, giving you the opportunity to host larger parties than you might otherwise have been able to. Bench seating in a restaurant or bar can also be beneficial if you want to be able to create space for a dance floor in the evening. This is because they can be effortlessly tucked under the table and out of the way.

Should you be looking for seating for a small hospitality venue, bench seating can help to create an illusion of space that you’d lose if you cluttered up the area with multiple dining chairs. You could always mix up the seating and use a combination of benches and chairs if you wanted to, especially if you’re aiming to create a particular aesthetic in your venue.
