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.
Spend some time out there and identify just what are feels the best to you. Bring a chair outside and just sit in it in different spots until you get a feeling of being in the right spot. Then you must ask yourself, can this spot be turned into an outdoor living room? How will you connect it to visually to your house? Are there interior elements of your home that you can repeat outside? How will you connect your new outdoor living room physically to your house? How will get there from inside your house? There must be an easy way to go from inside to outside and back inside. I cant stress this aspect of the design enough so. Smooth transition between inside and out is how you start feeling like your outdoor living room is really just another room of your house; an extension of your home.
The bathroom is another place where we rarely have enough room to store all the essentials. Add an indoor bench with deep storage, and you have a perfect place to store towels, rolls of bathroom tissue, and spare bottles of shampoo, conditioner, bars of soap, and shower gel. Even if you have only enough room for a small vanity storage bench, use the space inside to store your hair dryer, flat iron, and combs and brushes.
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 accessory you also might want to consider is a footstool. However, remember that adding a footstool will take up quite a bit of space, so only consider doing it if you have plenty of extra space. Measuring is even more important when you are considering getting a footstool because of the extra space that is involved. Just remember not to purchase so much furniture that your home looks cluttered. If there is any doubt in your mind about whether the bench will add unnecessary clutter, then think about other ways to decorate.
