More and more you're starting to see benches as part of thoughtful, intelligent kitchen designs. Once totally out of fashion with homeowners who wanted tables and chairs instead, an indoor bench is now chic and stylish. You'll find lots of tables being marketed with an indoor bench these days, whether it's a single bench to go along one side or two benches, one for each side. Chairs on the end are options either way to increase seating even more.
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.
For fabric, we highly recommend that you go with an upholstery weight fabric instead of a lighter material that will have a tendency to stretch over time, wrinkle and even rip. Upholstery fabrics can be purchased in most fabric stores and come in all the popular colors, weaves and patterns so you can easily match the other décor and fabrics in your home.
