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.
Another tip - keep the space in mind when selecting the type of bench. Backless benches dont create visual barriers, so they work well anywhere. You can put it against a wall or at the end of the bed and it will remain visually open. If you want to add comfort, then indoor benches that have a back on them are your best option. Just remember that they may not be as flexible when redecorating.
When shopping for indoor benches, there are some things to keep in mind. First, where are you planning to put the bench. If its in an entryway, you may want to go with a bench that has storage under the seat so you can hide away winter gloves and hats. A classic hall tree is another good choice, as many have a built in seat so you can change in and out of your shoes. If your planning to put use indoor benches in your halls, youll want to be sure you pick styles that dont impede movement through the space. Nothings worse than being tagged out by a bench in the middle of the night during a trip to the kitchen.
When most people think of bedroom furniture, they think about beds, dressers, nightstands and armoires. However, one of the most versatile and functional pieces of bedroom furniture is actually the bedroom bench. Not only can a bedroom bench offer you with a place to sit when getting dressed and putting on your shoes or a place to store blankets and linens, it can also add to the décor and ambiance of your bedrooms atmosphere.
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.
