Window Seat All you need to create a window seat is a bench with drawers or, even simpler, boxes or baskets, lined up beneath the window sill. Go for cushions or seat pads to make it comfortable. With the additional seating and storage that a window seat provides you may even find you can lose an armchair or cabinet and create more floor space. The garden bench is a fixture of outdoor furnishings. We rely on them as a resting place and a meeting places when we visit our yards, city gardens, and even amusement parks. This outside staple has been adapted for our homes, and now, its a great idea to put an indoor bench in almost any room in our house.
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 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.
Bedroom furniture is no longer confined to the regular bed, dresser and chest of drawers. There are so many innovative pieces of furniture now available for bedrooms. These include lingerie chests, sofas or chaises, ottomans, jewelry armoires, blanket racks, bed benches, closet organizers, vanity tables, lounges and a whole entourage of other furniture. These new pieces provide persons with ways to better organize their lives while bringing a certain level of sophistication to their bedroom as well as their life. They also provide some necessary functions that sometimes overlap when one piece serves more than one purpose.
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.
