Seating - bedroom benches, lounges and sofas are used for seating when you would rather not sit on your bed, such as when reading a book or the newspaper or drinking some coffee that may spill. Clothes Storage - dressers, chest of drawers, armoires and bed benches can all serve as places to store clothes. There are also beds nowadays that come with storage built in so there are drawers underneath the bed which can be used to store clothing or bedding or whatever you see it fit for.
Type of Wood Most indoor benches are wood, or they have at least some wood in them. The first thing to think about when selecting a bench is the type and color of the wood you already have in your home. If the bench will go in a room where you have other furniture, try to match the wood of the bench with the other pieces. If it will go in an entryway or hallway, then think about what other things are around them. You can match an indoor bench to kitchen cabinets or bathroom cabinets, wood trim, or just about anything else in your home. You just dont want the bench to look out of place.
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.
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.
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.
