o Look at the price - These are just like every other item in that you will be getting what you paid for. Many benches that are less expensive will not last as long. It also depends on what type of wood you choose for a wooden garden bench. Pine is less expensive, and will not last as long, and teak will last a long time but is one of the more expensive woods. A good tip, no matter what type of benches you choose, is to weatherproof your bench to make sure that they will last longer. o If you cannot find any garden benches you like around, get advice from people that visit your home often and visit the home of the people you know for more ideas. You can also have custom made ones to get exactly what you want but it can be more expensive to do. Often the best place to shop for benches of any kind is online. You can browse the largest selection of benches from the comfort of your own home.
Remember that outdoor benches will still show some age, even if you apply protectant year after year, so expect a little bit of color change, no matter what kind of steps you are taking to protect the bench. Weathered Teak Of course many people really enjoy the look of weathered teak, so many of these steps will not be necessary if you prefer to enjoy the grey teak. It takes several months for teak to fade from its original light brown color into grey, although this may happen a bit sooner if the bench is an outdoor bench. Just remember that teak will always be durable and resist splitting, even after it begins to have that beautiful grey weathered look.
Storage Benches Storage benches in the small home are a boon when it comes to keeping the area neat and clutter stashed away from the eye. Nothing can make a home look smaller than items piled in every room. Adding small indoor benches to nearly every part of your home will make the entire area seem larger. Small benches can be added to childrens rooms for a place where toys and games can be kept. Entryway benches can hold boots, shoes, and umbrellas. Bedroom benches are a great place to store extra bedding and pillows. Out of season clothing will store nicely in a bench that is lined with cedar. Sizes can be based on the amount of room that can be spared. There really isnt any place where small benches cant be placed and put to good use. They can be ordered to accommodate specific storage plans, such as drawers and doors. Some will have no back if they are going to be permanently installed and the wall behind the bench will act as the back. Others will be completely closed in and can be moved around the home as you see fit.
Last of all we have the incline bench which is quite similar in appearance to the flat bench, except that it is slightly raised. Generally the incline bench is adjustable so that the person using it can set the appropriate incline for the exercise they are performing. This function permits the user to zero in on very specific muscles. Each of the different types of workout bench has its positives and negatives. Which is precisely the reason why a workout bench that can easily and quickly adjust to all four positions is the optimum bench to own. One such bench is the Bowflex Selectech Adjustable Bench Series 5.1. This model is one of the most sought after workout benches on sale at the present time. This is probably because it is such a very versatile bench. It has no less than four incline positions, a 17 degree decline setting for performing sit ups, as well as the normal flat position.
Teak Oil Another product you might find helpful is teak oil. However, oil is not recommended for outdoor benches. Oil should be reapplied every three months on indoor benches, so it probably will not last that long on outdoor teak benches. Also mildew tends to grow on outdoor benches that are oiled, so steer clear of oil if your bench is an outdoor bench.Cleaning your Bench As with all quality wood furniture, it is necessary to clean your teak bench periodically. The best way to clean a teak bench is with a mixture of detergent, water, and bleach. The mixture should be mostly water, but the bleach and detergent will help ensure that the bench gets clean. Make sure that any brush you use is very soft because a hard brush will damage the soft wood of the bench. Some companies also sell products that are made to clean teak benches, but it is much less expensive to make your own solution just as already described.
