There is another type of breakfast nook bench that you might consider if you need still more room at your breakfast table. When you use a furniture set with chairs or free standing benches, you need to leave a buffer of space between the edge of the table and any walls so that there is room to pull chairs and benches out away from the table when you sit or stand. If you push the benches you are using against a wall, then you do not have to leave as much space between the edge of the table and the wall. That means you can afford to have a slightly larger table and as a result accommodate more people at your kitchen nook table. This type of breakfast nook seating might be called a booth similar to something you would find in a restaurant.
Once you know what style you are looking for, the next step is to consider the materials of construction. The most common material for kitchen furniture is wood. However, it is extremely uncommon to find natural wood or wood that is stained in a modern kitchen. The only way you will find wooden furniture in a modern kitchen is if the wood is painted.

Modern furniture is usually more typical in a house without children so it is alright to have upholstered dining nook furniture.
