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.
Once you know what size bedroom bench you need and what functions you want the bench to serve, you need to decide how you want your bedroom bench to look. Bedroom benches come in a variety of styles, designs and materials. Some are wood, some are a combination of wood and fabric, others are metal with padded fabric seating - the selection is quite varied. Take a look at your bedroom furniture. If you have an oak bedroom set, you should probably get a bedroom bench crafted from oak as well. Your bedroom bench should compliment the color and style of your existing bedroom furniture. The right bedroom bench can greatly enhance the overall look of your bedroom environment.
This multi-tasking bench has also evolved into a media bench, where you place your flat-screen TV. The media bench is designed with storage cubbies below to place all the essential electronics and store the DVDs you want to keep handy. A bedroom has always been a welcome place for a bench. Sit down there to slip your shoes on and off; theres no need to mess up a freshly-made bed. Place your suitcase on the indoor bench to pack and unpack without straining your back. If its a bench with storage, keep your spare sheets and blankets inside.
Now for your frame of mind: stop separating the outside of your house from the inside of your house, try to think of your property as all one place. Look at your outdoor space, look at your yard and take inventory of what you have naturally in that space. What has mother nature already provided for you? Hopefully you have some kind of natural elements that can be the focal point of your new outdoor living room such as a large tree, a hedgerow, a nice slope, or a beautiful view. In urban locations, your yard could be a barren rectangle, with nothing in it but some dirt and weeds, but there may be other qualities you could start with, such as a lovely angle of morning sun, maybe a nice brick wall on one side creating a microclimate, or even an interesting urban view of some kind.
Once you have supplied the floor; normally a wooden deck or a stone, brick or even concrete patio or terrace, and some walls; typically a formal hedge, loose hedgerow, wall, or fence, and maybe a ceiling; a sloping roof or retractable awning or parasol attached to the house, you can go crazy furnishing your new outdoor living room. Consider some sort of heating element such as a wood burning or gas fireplace, fire pit, chimney, or portable patio heater to enable to use your new room all year round.
