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.
A logical place for an indoor bench is inside the front or back door. Its a place where we can sit down to change our shoes or put on our boots. If its got the proper storage, we can use it to tuck away the backpack that too often goes missing in the morning, or the library books that have to go back before we pay a fine. It becomes a regular stopping place when we get home or just before we leave for the day.
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.
Unless you were in the starting lineup in Little League, chances are good that you became well acquainted with our old friend, the bench. Nothing more than a wooden plank, they served admirably but were hardly comfortable. My how times have changed. As adults, we can enjoy a starting lineup of indoor benches that are not only comfortable, but fashionable.
Furnishings like benches and tabletops can be made out of say, cast concrete for a real permanent feel, or obtained from a myriad of sources. Manufacturers are offering many new choices for furniture and lighting designed specifically for the outdoors as well as much better selections than ever for tough but nice fabrics for outdoor furniture, cushions, pillows, rugs and shades. Almost anything you can dream up as a way of making your outdoor living room more comfortable is now available for purchase online and off.
