Another important consideration when thinking about type of wood is durability. Solid wood benches will last a lot longer and take a lot more abuse than benches that are made of MDF, or medium density fiberboard. If you arent sure whether the bench is sold wood or MDF, then just try to pick it up and see how heavy it is. A solid wood bench will be a lot heavier than one made of MDF.
Type of Wood Most indoor benches are wood, or they have at least some wood in them. The first thing to think about when selecting a bench is the type and color of the wood you already have in your home. If the bench will go in a room where you have other furniture, try to match the wood of the bench with the other pieces. If it will go in an entryway or hallway, then think about what other things are around them. You can match an indoor bench to kitchen cabinets or bathroom cabinets, wood trim, or just about anything else in your home. You just dont want the bench to look out of place.
And while youre looking at pieces to serve as indoor benches, dont forget the classic cedar chest. Perfect for storing heirlooms, extra bedding or wool sweaters, you can add a pad to the top and voila!, instant bench for any room in your home. Flexibility is key when selecting a bench for the home. As your needs change or as you redecorate, you may find that your indoor benches will find new homes over time. If you redecorate often, keep this in mind. You may be able to give a room a complete makeover simply by moving pieces you already own around. An old piece in a new room can do wonders and indoor benches are often overlooked for this purpose.
Storage - pieces such as the lingerie chests, blanket racks, vanity tables and the regular dresser and chest of drawers. There are sometimes seating such as a bed bench that allows you to store items such as bedding inside, so they serve two purposes. For displays - bedside tables, vanity tables and sometimes bed benches are all used to display things such as pictures, lamps, and other little trinkets.
A kids room never seems to have enough storage to keep it tidy and organized. Still, an indoor bench with storage baskets gives them a place for storing those fashion dolls and tiny race cars. An indoor bench with a deep storage space is the perfect place to put away dress-up costumes. And you can neatly lay out tomorrows school clothes on the seat so the morning rush is a little less complicated.
