Breakfast nook. Want to make sure my dimensions are correct
January 10, 2013 in Photo Questions
So I think I understand that the bench is 4'6" x 6'6". How deep and how high should I make the bench seat (including the allowance for back seat cushion also). And how much extra space should I allow between seat and table? Table dimensions? I sure wish you were in my area! Thank you for sharing your design!

Sorry for the late reply. Let me see if I can answer this easily without a drawing. (: The bench seat should be about 15" deep, the back seat cushion, another 4", for 19" total, or so. The edge of the table should overlap the outer edge of the bench by a few inches (2-3"). I don't recall what the table dimensions were exactly, but if you sketch out the dimensions as I just stated them, you will see what dimension the table top needs to be. There is wiggle room to these measurements, but that's the general idea. I hope that helps! Best of luck to you! Leigha

Sorry, I missed this question and this is way late! The height of the bench base is about 13". The seat cushion adds about another 5" and the back adds another 15" or so, for a total height of about 31".
