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.
The living room should be a place for relaxing as well as housing everything from DVDs and games to books and magazines. Therefore it needs to have plenty of the right storage. Prevent overcrowding by looking for dual-purpose furniture: coffee tables with extra draws, shelving to hold books and accessories and large lidded baskets, which are perfect for storing throws and will double up as a side table.
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.
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.
