With the new year coming up, many of you are probably thinking of switching up your home to give it a new lease of life.
While there are many ways to decorate for Christmas without lifting a finger, a great way of switching up your home décor easily is with a bench – read on to find out how.
Complement the room
Firstly, if you are opting for a dining table with a bench, the first thing you need to do is think about the room in which it’s going in. This will help you to decide whether you should get one or not.
If you have a large open plan room then it is perfect, as it’ll help to give a slightly different dimension to the display. Meanwhile, if your home is smaller but open plan, it can help to stop the room looking so cluttered, and are much easier to push against a wall than a chair, meaning the table can always be pushed out of the way if needed.
Add more space
When it comes to eating dinner, sometimes there can be an issue of fitting everyone in, especially when it comes to chairs. However, this issue can be combatted with the use of a bench. Easier to place at the side of a table, you’ll be able to fit three or four people into a space you may have only had space for two or three before. And, if there are children, you can fit quite a few of them on one side of the table as they’re much smaller.
Create the illusion of space
Speaking of space, they can also create the illusion of space in a room. Obviosity, this will all come down to the size of a room, but there’s nothing worse than a big bulky table dominating a room of any size. With a bench, it’ll remove the high part of the chair, giving a clear look over the table on one side. If you like minimalism, you could opt for one on each side for those clean lines to finish off the look of your room.
A unique touch
What’s nice about a bench is it’s a little different. Everyone has a dining table and this always constitutes a table and a few chairs. But a bench adds something a little different and also gives you the opportunity to mix and match the furniture as well, creating a whole new dynamic to your décor wherever the table is placed.
So, if you want to do something a little different in your home this year, it looks like a dining table with a bench is the way to go.
