Bench Height: All You Need to Know

In the world of woodworking, there is no one answer to bench height. Some say that it must be high enough for them to work while standing and others find their most comfortable sitting down. However, what's important isn't so much about how tall you are as it is about your personal preference in regards with working at a desk or on the floor!

Standard Bench Sizes

Standard bench sizes are measured in inches. The standard dimensions for a workbench height is 36" or 91cm from the ground to the top of desk, and 24"or 61 cm wide. If you need more room on your workspace but still want that Americana feel, then our oversized benches can provide up to an additional 8 feet by 2", with some models having higher tops providing extra space overhead as well!

Standard Bench Height

What bench height is right for you? When it comes to outdoor benches, the standard height of 18-20 inches (46-51 cm) provides a comfortable position and complements your dining table. For indoor furniture, 36 inches may be more appropriate as people have different heights.

Standard Bench Depth – How Much Depth Do You Need to Sit on a Bench?

Do you need to know how deep a bench needs to be when sitting on it? Well, there are many factors that determine the depth of seating for an average adult. For example, if someone is tall or overweight they may want their seat deeper than 15 inches so as not to feel cramped up in this area. On the other hand, people who are wide and short would most likely prefer around 20-24 inch seats because these individuals have more weight distribution over a larger surface area making them much more comfortable overall with less pressure applied at any given time from all angles between themselves and the backrest behind them against which they will lean into while seated comfortably.

Standard Bench Width – How Wide Should Your Bench Be?

The width of the bench seat should be between 42-96 inches wide. If you are only seating two people, a narrow (42-52 inch) bench is best because it will give them plenty of personal space to spread out on their own side. However, if there are four people sitting at the table then they need some more room so that they can sit comfortably next to each other without touching elbows - 81+" benches work well for this case!
