If you use your table a lot for entertaining, you may want to go with a patterned fabric for your indoor bench. This will help cover up some of the smaller stains that may happen during meal time and save you a lot of time keeping the cushion clean. Of course, you can always add some Velcro or a zipper along one seam so that you can clean your cushion cover easily in the washing machine. Just be careful that you don't accidentally dry a material in the dryer that isn't pre-shrunk. Though clean, you may find that your cover suddenly doesn't fit on the foam pad any more.
If you like the traditional style but you want a little bit more comfort for your guests you might want to opt for a padded bench. You can still keep it traditional with the rest of the bench being made out of wood, without a back of course, but you do not need your guests to be uncomfortable just to keep a specific style. Usually you can find the padded bench seats in multiple colors so you can match the décor and style already found in your dining area.
One of the great things about making a removable cover is that you can change it out seasonally. For example, during Thanksgiving you can go with an autumn color scheme and during Christmas, add a festive covering that reflects the joyous holiday season. This not only makes your pad last and look new longer, but changes up your décor for very little money.
