What Bench and Table Set Should I Choose?
A Full-Length Bench is great for maximising the seats around your table. It works especially well paired alongside a table with a pedestal base, as you can tuck the seat neatly underneath without losing any seating space. This is because you’re not restricted by any table legs. That’s not to say you can’t have a full-length seat alongside a table with legs though, just consider how you will be able to sit at the table if the legs are in the way.
A Tucked in Bench will not only save space but will also create a neat and compact look. To be able to tuck your bench underneath a table with legs, it will need to fit the ‘inside leg’ table measurement rather than the length of the tabletop. It’s best to have 5cm clearance to avoid bumping into the table legs each time the seat is pulled in and out.
Top Tip: Whether you choose a seat that is full length or can be tucked in, it’s best to leave enough space so that when you’re sitting at the table, the front of the bench is in line with the front of the table. This applies to corner pieces as well, as it will give you the optimum comfort when seated.
