When it comes to decking out your restaurant or office pantry, opt for benches for a fuss-free furnishing experience. Sleek, space-saving and perfect for creating personal spaces, benches are game-changers when it comes to seating options for dining areas.
Are you team dining chair or dining bench? Perhaps after browsing through dining chair options you may be wondering if dining benches may be better suited to your establishment. Aesthetically pleasing yet functional, dining benches are no longer just sidekicks to dining chairs when it comes to restaurant or office pantry seating. If you’re still just considering dining benches to pair with the dining tables for your establishment, here are a couple more reasons why dining benches are the ideal seating options for your seat-uation.
Gives a “Cleaner Look”
Your dining chairs may be able to be tucked under the table, but can they be fully tucked away and out of sight when not in use? We think not, hence the reason why dining benches may just be your best bet if you prefer a cleaner aesthetic for your establishment or pantry area. Dining chairs do have their pros as well, such as being stackable for space-saving needs, or for seating your little customers who can’t fit into a baby chair anymore but aren’t ready for a regular adult chair either. However, when it comes to hiding out of sight, the dining bench still takes the prize. Tucking your dining benches under the table also ensures you get to maximise your floor space and avoid mishaps such as bumping into chair backs when navigating your way through the area. If you’re worried about the discomfort of sitting on a hard bench, don’t be. These days, wooden benches such as the ones from Comfort Furniture, Singapore often come padded for your comfort!
Offers Space for Social Distancing
Maintaining a safe distance between everyone is highly prioritised especially during this challenging period. You may opt to have a mix of dining chairs, dining benches and bar or counter stools for social distancing efforts as well as to suit different table heights. As regular cleaning is also a part of the new SOP, you might consider getting benches that are not upholstered such as wooden benches or even outdoor benches for easy sanitisation of your establishment in Singapore.
Wider Backrest for Well-Built Individuals
Many have associated benches with uncomfortably hard seats and backrests. However, this isn’t the case as plenty of dining benches come fully padded or upholstered these days. While most dining chairs come ready-made with backrests, they’re typically on the smaller side. Dining benches are great seating alternatives because they offer a wider backrest for more well-built individuals or people who simply appreciate more personal space than what a dining chair can offer.
Additional Seating for Extra Guests
Not only do modern dining benches come with backrest support, but they also allow seating for additional guests (usually 2 and a plus). For example, if a child wants to squeeze in with their parents, they get to have their own seat without having to sit on a parent’s lap. Or in another scenario, 3 petite ladies can easily sit on a two-seater bench in the event your cafe’s seating capacity is maxed out. Moreover, dining benches are also great for customers to place their expensive handbags without having to “sacrifice” a chair.
