Design expert Billy Cotton notes that corner booth dining sets not only add a unique look to your kitchen but also save room as they slot nicely into the corner of a space. Corner booth dining sets are made in various materials with some crafted out of solid or manufactured wood for durability and strength. You will also find mixed-media style corner booth dining sets that feature metal or stainless steel table or bench bases with upholstered seating. It could be anything from faux leather or a polyester blend to something super easy to clean like polyurethane. The upholstery could be filled with foam or stuffing to add additional ease and comfort to the corner booth dining set seating.
Corner booth dining sets work well for larger families as they're designed to easily accommodate large groups of people sharing a meal, explains Frances Merrill, founder of Reath Design Studio. Corner booth dining sets can be made in anything from a 3-piece up to a 5-piece set depending on any additional chairs or benches. A lot of sets include a trestle or picnic-style table as it accommodates L-shaped connected benches that snuggly wrap around the table to create booth seating. Most tables are rectangular or square in shape with some more traditional designs with four tapered legs. Some can be more uniquely designed, like with a cool Y-shaped base that still allows for wrap-around bench seating. You'll find a lot of clean-lined silhouettes with some corner booth dining sets containing upholstered seats to allow for a comfy spot to sit for extended periods of time.
