The family room never seems to have enough seating. Now, you can add storage ottomans that look like a mini indoor bench, and that double as storage. Remove the seat, and use the space inside to store a throw blanket, books and magazines, coasters, and whatever else your family deems as essential for everyday life. Other benches come with upholstered seats that reverse to trays, so you can use that indoor bench as either seating or a coffee table.
The kitchen is another place where an indoor bench makes sense. In my own kitchen, I replaced the two side chairs in the rear of my breakfast nook with an upholstered storage bench. Its easy to slide onto the bench rather than move the chairs in and out of limited space. It easily fits three teenage girls so we can have more fun around the table. And the seat lifts up when I need to grab some place mats or fancy cloth napkins from their secret hiding place. Dining benches have become popular alternatives to side chairs for seating in the dining room, too.
Considering a garden as an outdoor room is nothing new to garden designers. The concept is just now making its way into the public consciousness. But just what are outdoor living rooms? Are they places where you try to recreate your indoor living room outdoors? No, not exactly. Are they places like your deck, patio or terrace where you just plop down a set of furniture and hope that youll feel like spending time out there? No, that wont do either. An outdoor living room is a space outside of your house, built with materials suitable to the outdoors, where you will actually want to spend time! Its also a state of mind, the idea of living life outdoors.
