Not all benches are the same - the variation in design and functions is particularly high with this piece of furniture. Starting with the very classic bench (1), the practical bench with storage space (2) and the bench with backrest (3) for extra comfort, there are many different models. Particularly inviting to linger are for example benches with Upholstery and shelf (4).
When it comes to choosing the right size and height, it depends a lot on where you want to use your bench. A modern and clever option is to use the bench instead of chairs at the dining table. A bench for the kitchen or dining room should be 45 cm high and be best upholstered for a comfortable seating experience. To ensure that the proportions in the overall picture are harmonious, it is recommended that the designer bench is slightly shorter than the dining table. A bench at the dining table not only creates proximity, but is also more space-saving than chairs, both in depth and width per seat.
"A classic bench is a slim seat compared to a series of chairs - with a clear difference: chairs are pushed to the table when not in use, a bench has its fixed place and always invites you to sit and linger." – Viktoria, furnishing expert
Whether as a coffee table, seating or storage space - there are also many different ways to use benches in the living area. Especially near sofas or armchairs, the seat height should be significantly lower than that of a chair. It is advisable to choose a height, which is best around 35 cm. However, in order to invite you to sit in a relaxed position or to ensure sufficient floor space, the seat depth should be significantly greater.
As varied as the designs of benches are, so are the places where they can be used. While they are a practical alternative to chairs at the dining table or in the garden, a bench in the hallway is a practical helper when taking off shoes or putting bags down. Here, straight benches with additional functions such as storage space or shelves are real all-rounders.
In addition, a bench cuts a good figure in the bedroom and can also serve as a bedside table in addition to a coat rack and seating area. For a nice visual effect, however, you should make sure that you choose a designer bench that is slightly lower than your bed. In addition, the living room also has a variety of tasks for a bench - whether as a coffee table, seating, storage or purely decorative object.
"A bench is a wonderful way to design an empty wall. Especially in combination with pictures hung above it or a small wall shelf it becomes an eye-catcher with additional function in almost every room." – Viktoria, furnishing expert
