Dining Bench Set: How to Set up, Match and Style Dining Benches
October 23, 2017 at 12:21 pm 0
  A dining bench set is a simple but really effective way to update your dining space.  Comfortable, efficient and flexible, after reading this post you’ll wonder why you hadn’t considered a dining bench set sooner! Whether you have a formal dining area or a casual kitchen/dining room space, a dining bench would be a very smart choice. So, let us take you through the different shapes and styles of kitchen bench, the measurements you really shouldn’t miss, and the matching dining tables that will create a stunning dining bench set in your home.  

Why Choose a Dining Bench Set?

A dining bench set may seem a big jump from having traditional dining chair seating in your home. But when chosen with the shape and size of your room in mind, a dining bench really can work wonders in a space. Here are a couple of reasons why we think dining benches are a smart choice for your home:
  • It’s more economical: this, of course, depends on how large your table is, but the cost of your dining chairs can really add up. A dining bench will allow you to seat just as many, if not more, all on one cosy seat.
 
  • It’s a more versatile seating arrangement: whether you opt for a backless bench, a bench with a back or a corner unit, a dining bench will allow you to really transform your dining area. You could also pair a dining bench alongside dining chairs for a mix and match seating setting.
 
  • It saves space: you can often tuck a backless dining bench under the table and out of the way if you need more floor space, making a backless bench a great space saver. With a dining bench you can also seat a couple more when you have guests over for dinner, so you don’t need to pull up any extra dining chairs or huddle around the table.
 

How To Measure Your Dining Bench Set:

If you’re choosing a premade dining set, all the bench shapes and table sizes will be matched for you. However, it’s still good to know your key measurements and how much space you’ll need in your kitchen or dining room.

Bench Sizing Checklist:

  1. Seat back height (which is all the way to the top if your bench has a backrest).
  2. Seat height (from floor to the seat). A comfortable seat height should be around 45cm, the same as a dining chair.
  3. Bench depth (this is from the very front to the very back of the bench)
  4. Seat depth (from front of the seat to as far back as you can sit)
  5. Bench length (this will help you decide how many you’ll be able to sit comfortably)
 

Top Tip: If you’re planning to put your bench against a wall be sure to check that it fits with any panelling, radiators or window sills.

 

Table Measuring Checklist:

 
  1. Height of the table
  2. Table length
  3. Length of the table with extensions (if applicable)
  4. Table measurement from between the legs (not just the table top).
 

Top Tip: You should aim for your bench to be roughly the table measurement from between the legs, or minus 5-10cm if you want to tuck the bench underneath the table.

 

Dining Bench Shapes and Sizes

There are a whole variety of benches available, so it’s key to pick one that’s right for you and your space. Dining benches are a great opportunity to really make the most of your dining area and transform its look. Here are our dining bench top picks and what features you should look out for.  

Full-Length Dining Benches

Great For: maximizing the seats around the table.

Example of how a full length dining bench should it alongside your dining table

Example of how a full-length dining bench should it alongside your dining table

A full-length kitchen bench does what it says on the tin - it needs to be the full length of your dining table. This style of bench works especially well with pedestal dining tables or where the table legs aren’t set at each of the four corners, as you can neatly tuck the bench in while still maximising your space. That’s not to say a full-length kitchen bench doesn't look great alongside a table with legs, just consider how you will be able to sit on the bench and if the table legs are in the way.  

Tucked in Dining Benches

Great For: space saving and a neat compact look.

This really isn't one to miss! make sure you measure inside the table legs as well as the table top.

This really isn't one to miss! make sure you measure inside the table legs as well as the table top.

To be able to tuck your bench underneath a table with legs, the bench will need to fit the ‘inside leg length’ measurement of the table rather than the length of the tabletop. You’ll also want to leave about 5-10cm for clearance to avoid bumping into the legs every time the bench is pulled in and out. "<yoastmark  

Top Tip: Whether you have your bench tucked in or at the full length of your table, we recommend that you allow enough space so that when you are sitting on the bench, the front of the bench is in line with the front of the table. This applies to corner benches as well as it will give you the optimum comfort while seated. You may prefer to have a more tucked in seating position, but this will make sure that you always have enough room.

 

Corner Dining Benches

Great For: creating a cosy dining corner.

Corner dining benches are designed mainly to suit tables with pedestal legs, such as our Sanza and Aria tables. That’s not to say that they can’t work with tables with legs though! In this case, you’ll really need to consider your sizing and check there’s enough space to fit around the table legs and be seated comfortably.  

Top Tip: It’s called left-hand dining bench because the longer side is on the left and a right-hand dining bench because the longer side is on the right!

 

Benches with a Backrest 

Great For: comfortable and versatile dining.

Clean-lined and simple, a straight back bench offers more back support as you can lean back when you are seated. Benches with a back create more of a visual impact in a room, which is great if you’ve got the space and are really looking to add a style statement in your dining interior. A dining bench with a back also allows you to squeeze on a couple more, even if seating does become more snug!  

Backless Benches 

Great For: opening up the look and feel in your dining area.

Backless dining benches are great for opening up your dining space as, without a back, they have less of a visual impact in the room. They’re also great space savers too; if you select a bench size that’s smaller than the inside leg length of your table, you can neatly tuck the bench away when it’s not in use. Backless benches are also that bit lighter and easy to move.  

Perfect Pairings: Matching Dining Tables and Benches

One of the many great things about a dining bench is that it can be styled alongside a variety of dining tables. Whether you choose to tie your set together by shape, colour or size, you'll be able to find a perfect pairing for your space. Here are our top styling picks when it comes to styling a dining bench set:

A Cosy Corner

Sanza White Gloss and Loop 7 Seater Left Hand Corner Bench Dining Set
A corner nook is a perfect opportunity to have a corner bench in your home. A corner bench will really make the most of an awkward corner and turn into a cosy and communal dining spot. Alternatively, you can use a corner bench to section off a dining area in an open plan kitchen or kitchen/dining area. Our range of Loop 5 and 7 seater left and right-hand corner benches would work a treat!  

More to Seat?

Sanza White Gloss and Loop 7 Seater Right Hand Corner Bench Dining Set
A dining bench is a great match with an extending dining table, as with a bench you can be a bit more flexible with your seating, even if it does become a slightly more snug! This is an ideal dining bench set option if you want the flexibility of a table extension but don’t have the space to store extra chairs when they are not in use.  

Seamless Coordination

Mellow 4 Seater Bench with Backrest
A great way to make your new dining bench set look right at home is to coordinate it with other furniture pieces in your space. Here we’ve coordinated the black powder coated legs of the Mellow bench with the sleek black chrome base of the Elise Black Chrome Bar Stool. The Zen 6 Seater White Gloss and Glass Dining Table ties the whole look together by breaking up the darker finished,  keeping the space looking light and modern.  

Care and Cleaning

Chances are, you’ll be using your dining benches daily. This is why we recommend doing a light, regular clean of your benches. This will help to keep away any marks caused by day to day use, keeping your bench looking newer for longer.  

Faux Leather Dining Benches

When it comes to cleaning any marks and spills caused by food and drink, step away from the bleach! Bleach is a harsh chemical cleaner that will just damage the leather rather than help to clean it. Instead, opt for gentler cleaner agents such as a dab of mild detergent like washing-up liquid on a soft, slightly dampened cloth. Apply a gentle amount of pressure and move in a circular motion. Then with a dry cloth, wipe the faux leather to remove any excess moisture.  

Chrome Dining Bench Legs

For the chrome base or legs of your dining bench, we advise using soap and water on a soft cloth, and if the mark still doesn’t go away, try adding a splash of vinegar. This will help to give your cleaning that extra boost. Waxing chrome after cleaning will help to keep its high shine for even longer. Avoid using abrasive materials on your chrome dining table or benches. Any scratches caused can potentially expose the material to the air, subsequently resulting in rusting over time.  

Brushed Metal Bench Legs

Much like chrome, all you need to clean brushed metal or stainless steel is a mix of warm water and mild dishwashing detergent. For those harder to remove marks, window cleaner or a solution that’s half water and half white vinegar works a treat! Alternatively, you can use baby oil on a paper towel, being sure to buff away any excess solution with a dry, microfibre cloth. Dust your brushed metal bench legs regularly to keep it looking newer for longer.  

Black Powder Coated Bench Legs

To clean black powder coated benches, prepare a bucket of soapy water by adding a few drops of mild liquid detergent to warm water. Then, dip a lint-free the rag in the soapy water and wring out excess. Gently wipe the entire surface, remembering to wash underneath the furnishing and in all cracks and grooves. Never use ammonia or bleach on powder-coated furniture and avoid scraping or rubbing the surface with an abrasive cloth. This could damage or remove the coating from the surface rather than help to remove the mark.  

So, have we convinced you that a dining bench set would be a great addition to your home?

We hope so! If you’d like more information on bench sizing and styling, we highly recommend taking a look at our all-you-need-to-know Dining Bench Sizing Blog Post. Or, just ask us a question in the comments!

Extending Dining Sets: How To Choose The Perfect Extending Set
September 29, 2017 at 4:35 pm 0
An extending dining set can transform your dining space. With flexible seating options and a variety of styles and combinations available, there is sure to be an extending dining set that is right for your space. But when looking at what set to buy, there are a few more things to consider than if you were buying just a table or just chairs. So, if you need some help choosing the right extending dining set, how to style an extending dining set, or you would like to browse what sets would work best for you, you’ve come to the right place!  

Types of Extending Dining Tables:

First things first, let’s take a look at the type of table extensions that are available. They may differ slightly depending on the shape of the table, but here are some extensions you’re very likely to come across:  

Externally Stored Single Extension Leaves

A table with externally stored extension leaves is one of the simplest extension mechanisms. All you need to do is pull the table apart, put the extension piece in place and then fasten the clips on the underside of the table to hold it in place. One of the benefits of a single extension dining table is that they are usually very affordable. The table top can also remain more streamlined. Don’t forget though, with a separate extension piece you will need to find a place to store the leaf when not in use.  

Externally Stored Double Extension Leaves

Two extension leaves give not one, not two, but three table length options. This is with one extension in place, both extensions or without either in use. A table with two extensions offers maximum seating flexibility and versatility. This is a great table option if you regularly have a different number of people to seat.  

Butterfly Table Extension

  A butterfly table extension is a quick and easy way to seat more people around your dining table. The extension folds and rotates to fit within the table top, with the table concealing the extension when not in use. User-friendly clips hold the extension in place, making extending tables like the Aver dining table both strong and supportive. Neat, quick and easy to use, with a butterfly extension you also don’t have to worry about storing the extension leaves elsewhere, as they neatly fold back into the table top.    

Lift Up Extending Mechanism

To use a lift-up extending mechanism, all you have to do is undo the table clasps and pull the table out. The extension leaves sit on smooth, slightly sprung, hinges which lever up and out to sit in place. The table can then be pushed back together and the clasps tightened to keep everything in place. With a lift mechanism, you don’t need to worry about storing the extension pieces elsewhere. What’s more, the design also means that the shape of the table can remain streamlined and sleek, like our range of Eve frosted glass dining tables.  

Internally Stored Separate Extension Piece

An internally stored but separate extension piece means the extension panel is separate from the table but the leaf is stored in the table top. With extending tables like the Sanza, each side of the table smoothly glides apart with minimal effort to reveal the extension leaf. The leaf then just needs to be taken out and placed in position.
Top Tip: We suggest wrapping the table extension in a soft cloth or blanket and storing it under your sofa when not in use. This will keep it out of the way but well protected.
To see the extension pieces in action and really get a feel for how easy they are to use, why not take a look at each of the product pages. Our handy product videos will give you an idea of how the extension works and will have all the information you'll need about each design of table.  

Extending Dining Sets - Top Measurements

Measuring for your extending dining set will take a bit more time and consideration, but it is still very straightforward. Essentially, it’s a combination of the key dining chair and dining table measurements, with the added factor that the table can extend so will need more space. We’ve broken each aspect into a handy checklist to make sure you’ve got everything covered.  

The Chair:

  1. Height, from the very top of the chair right down to the floor
  2. Seat width, from left to right
  3. The seat height, from base of the chair the bottom of the seat
  4. Seat depth, from the front to as far back as you can sit.
  5. Back height of the seat
  6. The footprint of the chair, how much floor space, the seat occupies.
Top Tip: don’t forget to measure the height of the arms if you have dining armchairs.

The Table:

  1. The height of the table
  2. Table length
  3. Table width
  4. Inner leg length, as this will be different to table length
  5. The apron, which will help you decide what chairs will fit
Top Tip: check whether the extensions are stored within the table or need to be stored separately.
Once you’ve got your individual measurements, it’s time to bring everything together….

And don’t forget to consider your existing space…

 
  • Consider how the table will look and fit in your space, both extended and unextended.
  • Measure out your place settings. We recommend leaving 60cm to 80cm per place setting, dependant on whether you want a cosier feel or a more spacious setting.
  • Leave enough room around your furniture, both for chairs to be pulled in and out and of people to walk past.
 
Top Tip: Think about all the uses you have for your extending dining table before making a purchase. A dining table doesn’t just need to be big enough for the number of guests come meal times. Does it double up as a home office/desk? Do the kids need the extra space for homework/hobbies? Consider the type of table that would benefit your daily needs.

Work Your Room

The extending dining set you choose will depend a lot on the space and style of your existing interior. Picture your current dining area and ask yourself the following questions. This will help to narrow down the type of set best suited to your space.  

Short on space?

If you want to make the most of the space you have available, choose an extending table with a pedestal base. This will free up the space around your table and stop any obstructions for your chair or bench legs. Chairs with a slim shape and design would be ideal as they can be closely tucked under the table.  

Room for a couple more?

The great thing about an extending dining set is that you’ve always got the option to extend the table when you need a couple of extra seats. Consider how many you want to seat and how often you are likely to extend the table. This will help you choose what size and how many extensions you need, as some extending dining tables like our Ellie White Oval Extending Table and Fern White Gloss and Fern Grey Gloss Extending Dining Table have the option of two extension pieces for maximum seating flexibility.  

What finish would you like?

You may have your heart set on a particular finish or be open to options. The best way to start thinking about finishes is to consider your existing space and the material durability. Materials like HPL and tempered safety glass are incredibly strong, safe and durable, so are ideal if you’re looking for a table for a young family. Gloss finishes can be easily wiped clean and can be styled alongside a variety of colours and textures.  

What shape would suit your space?

A round or oval extending table will free up a little more room and there are no harsh corners to walk into, something to consider with little ones around. A rectangular or square extending table generally will suit the majority of interiors as they mirror the shape of the room, however it really is dependent on what you think will suit your space.  

Perfect Pairings

If you’re choosing seats to match your extending table, there are so many options available. However, we always think it’s a good idea to make the most of the table extension with a clever choice of seating to go with it. Here are some smart seating choices when it comes to extending dining tables:  

Stackable Dining Chairs - Smart Space Saving

If you’re not planning on having your table extended for the majority of the time, chances are you’re going to have extra seats when the full table isn’t in use. Rather than having to bring down the chair from the study and the footstool from the living room, opt for stackable dining chairs. This way, you have enough seats but can easily stack and store the extra chairs when they aren’t in use.  

Dining Benches - Create a Cosy Corner

Creating a cosy dining corner with dining chairs can be a little tricky, as you’ll need to make sure there’s enough space to get around the table, while also still be able to pull out and tuck in the dining chairs. However, a cosy corner is incredibly easy to create with a dining corner bench. The right-angle of the bench can neatly be tucked into the corner to really make the most of your space. To make seating even more comfortable, opt for a pedestal table like the Sanza as then there will be no table legs to get in the way.  

Ready Made Extending Dining Sets

To save you some time (and effort) both measuring and styling, we offer a whole variety of premade extending dining sets. We’ve done the edit on the shapes, colours and practicality so you know the set has been meticulously matched. We have loads of sets on our website, but here are a couple of combinations to help give you some styling inspiration...

Bright Bursts

A dining set is a great way to introduce a splash of colour to your space. Take the Aver White Extending and Senn Colourful Dining Set: the clean, modern lines of the white extending table allows the colourful choice of Senn Chairs become true style accents in the space.  

Natural Textures with a Modern Twist

An oak or oak veneer dining table will instantly add a homely, warm and welcoming feel to your dining space. However, a wooden table doesn’t always have to be traditional. The Sanza oak dining table infuses the old with the new, combining an oak veneer with sleek brushed metal finishes. This is then seamlessly coordinated with the brushed metal legs of the faux leather Moda chairs. The key to pulling off this look is picking out an element that ties the whole set together.  

Keep it simple

Too many finishes, styles and surfaces in a dining space can become a little overwhelming. If you want to keep the look clean and simple, your best bet is to opt for a gloss dining table. White and grey are such neutral tones so will help keep the look clean yet contemporary. For this setting, we’ve styled the Metro dining table alongside the stackable Tori chairs which instantly creates a neat and uniform look.  

Fit for a Crowd

When you're decorating a large, open-plan dining space,  an extending dining set works a treat as you can make the most of the space you have available. However, you’ll want to make sure your dining set looks just as good unextended as it does with the extension piece in place.  Opt for a set like the Aver Grey and White Extending and Finn Dining Set which works just as well for day to day dining as it does for those big family get-togethers.  

Mixing Materials

Selecting a premade extending dining set doesn’t mean it all has to be the same. Mix up the look by choosing different coloured chairs and a table that already has a variety of finishes incorporated into its design. The great thing about this style of set is that all the hard work of matching up styles and finishes has been done for you!  

Designer Details

One subtle but really sleek way to tie your dining set together is through the details. For example, the curved back on the Curva dining chairs are a subtle nod towards the round table top and chrome penny base of the Curva dining table, which extends into an oval shape. The overall curved appearance of this dining set creates a really cosy and inviting setting.  

Coordinate with your space

One way to make your new dining set look right at home is to coordinate it with your decor. Picking colours out of your wallpaper or rugs and then matching this with your dining set will create a seamless and coordinated look.  

But that’s not all...

We have such a wide variety of extending tables and premade sets on our website that would look great in any home. And don’t just take our word for it- check out our Luka Dining Table featured in the Independent's pick of the best extending dining tables. If you would like more information on sizing and styling your set, why not take a look at our handy Dining Chair, Dining Bench and Dining Table pocket guides for all the information you could need.

Hopefully we have helped inspired you to give you kitchen a quick home update, just by switching up your dining set! If not, let us know what you'd like to know? Just in case, here are a few tips for buying a new dining set and the things to look out for;

  • Space is key. Make sure you're measuring where you want you dining table and chairs to sit, because you need to allow  enough room to pull out the chairs to sit comfortably.
 
  • Think about maintenance. Since so many of us are on the go, we don't always have time to clean. Think about a glass or gloss finish as these can be quickly cleaned with warm soapy water and buffed off with a dry micro-fibre cloth.
 
  • Always use coasters and placemats. Regardless of the finish of your table, you want to protect its surface. So, by using coasters and placemats you're preventing and scratches or marks.
 
  • Stackable chairs are a godsend! Because we are all after more space, you can stack them up and tuck in a cupboard in the corner until you need them!
 
  • Glass dining tables are super hard wearing and fit into any home interior style. If you're struggling to choose- Glass is a great option!
 
  • Choose colourful dining chairs, not colourful dining tables. Your dining table will last a long time, so you want something thats timeless. Chairs on the other hand you can have some fun with! As dining chairs are usually the cheaper options, its!
 
  • Most of all, choose a quality dining set. You might be able to find cheaper options out there, but can you guarantee the quality? We pride ourselves on our quality, and our aim really is to make great design affordable to everyone.

I truly cannot fault this product in any way. Everything from start to finish is superb. Right from assembly, which was done by delivery men, to completion. The table is everything it looks like in the photographs. Fashionable, yet very sturdy. The pedestal looks so beautifully designed. The whole finish is 'Class'. It really does look so expensive. It goes so well with my very new and expensive white kitchen. Recommendation highly suggested. Thank you for a wonderful product!
