Once you have supplied the floor; normally a wooden deck or a stone, brick or even concrete patio or terrace, and some walls; typically a formal hedge, loose hedgerow, wall, or fence, and maybe a ceiling; a sloping roof or retractable awning or parasol attached to the house, you can go crazy furnishing your new outdoor living room. Consider some sort of heating element such as a wood burning or gas fireplace, fire pit, chimney, or portable patio heater to enable to use your new room all year round.
Accessories While a bench is an accessory in itself, sometimes you may also wish to liven up the space even more with some accessories. Soft cushions or pillows can add some additional color to a bench, and they can make any bench become comfortable. If you are positive that you want to incorporate specific colors into the bench, then there is a very good chance that you will need to purchase cushions and pillows for it. Just remember that cushions and pillows are a great way to add even more personality to a bench.
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.
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.
The kitchen is another place where an indoor bench makes sense. In my own kitchen, I replaced the two side chairs in the rear of my breakfast nook with an upholstered storage bench. Its easy to slide onto the bench rather than move the chairs in and out of limited space. It easily fits three teenage girls so we can have more fun around the table. And the seat lifts up when I need to grab some place mats or fancy cloth napkins from their secret hiding place. Dining benches have become popular alternatives to side chairs for seating in the dining room, too.
