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 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.
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.
