eternalknot Posted November 8, 2011 Share Posted November 8, 2011 Anyone BTDT, and have insight for me? I'm in the market for a new dining room table. I've always had, will always love and ever prefer: round tables. But I'm filling a space that will be better served by a rectangle table. A bench would look and fit great, but I don't know about the day-to-day logistics of it (versus separate chairs for everyone). A banquet is another option. Do the kids like the bench? Dislike it? Indifferent to it? What about adults - I'd end up on the bench side sometimes, and wonder about the backless experience LOL. Is it easy enough to get in/out and walk behind w/o moving the entire bench (as opposed to people in individual chairs scootching to allow someone to pass behind)? Would an upholstered banquet be really stupid with six kids? Is a bench good for squeezing in unexpected, last-minute little guests? My kids are always inviting people to stay, and seating can sometimes be an issue. I'm wondering if a bench could help.
