Finally, if you put a premium on storage, consider getting a chest bench with built-in storage. These work best in a kitchen nook where the bench itself doesn't need to be moved since it can get heavy when filled. This is a great place to store your linens, seasonal kitchen décor or serving ware, holiday plates, candles and other things that you don't always need, but need nearby.
If comfort is a concern, consider putting a cushion on your bench. Some companies sell cushions already made or you can custom order them. If you're handy with fabric, you can opt to make a customized cushion yourself. Most fabric stores have poly-foam that you can use for the padding and it is pretty easy to shape.
Benches have some benefits chairs can't offer. First, they can usually hold more people. Where chairs are pretty much one seat to a customer, it's not too tough to squeeze an extra person onto an indoor bench in the kitchen, especially if the extra people are children. In fact, a bench is an ideal solution for families who have a growing family and where space is at a premium.
