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.
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.
Once you decide how many dining room benches you want and where you want to place it, you need to decide upon the style of the bench as well. There are many different choices available to you. The first choice you have is the traditional dining room bench. This is probably exactly what you are picturing. It is an all wooden bench which is simple in design and has no back at all. The style is nice as it is simple, but it can also be easily pushed underneath the dining room table when not in use.
