If you plan to purchase a bench, then there are some important things to keep in mind. A teak bench must be properly cared for, especially if it spends time out in the elements. Here are some important tips to keep in mind when caring for a teak bench. Teak Protector If you do not want the lovely brown color of the bench to fade to the light grey color, then there are some products which are made to protect the original color of the teak. Kingsley-Bate makes a wonderful product that will help the bench keep its original teak color for much longer than it would otherwise. A teak protector will need to be reapplied about once per year in order for the bench to retain its same color year after year. You might be able to get away with doing it a little less often if the bench is kept indoors all of the time.
If you desire a garden bench that requires very little maintenance but gets older more attractively than just about all other different types of wood benches, then the kind of bench you are going to need is a bench made of teak. A teak bench happens to be more pricey than other varieties of benches but for apparent reasons. When you are thinking of choosing pieces of furniture made with teak, you need to look at it not simply as an investment, but also as pieces of furniture that may endure for generations to come. Teak features an average life of up to seventy-five years and also has unequalled features unlike, virtually, any other wood types. It often is publicized as a symbol of indulgence.
Quality As with all types of furniture, quality is always extremely important. There is nothing worse than relaxing to put on makeup and then falling to the floor because the bench broke. Having a basic understanding of what makes quality vanity benches can really help with the selection process. Many vanity benches are metal, and one way to judge the quality of the metal is by checking the weight. However, most vanity benches are also very dainty, so it may be difficult to judge the quality of metal by the weight of the bench. Just remember that a very light bench may not offer as good quality as one that is slightly heavier.
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.
Also take a look at how the bench is put together. Higher quality benches will have joints that are welded together rather than screwed or bolted. These welds will also be located in very inconspicuous places if the bench is well made. For wood benches, look for one that comes in very few pieces. Try to get a feel for the joints although judging joints on a wood piece is a bit more difficult because it can be hard to see the quality construction. Try sitting on the bench and moving around a little bit. If the bench does not wiggle or creak, then there is a good chance that it is of high quality. For upholstered bench tops, look at how the cushion is attached to the bench. A cushion that is loose or looks like it is about to come loose will not do. The best choice is a cushion that is attached to the top of the bench and cannot be removed. Cushions that are attached with ties are usually not a good choice for a vanity bench. Also remember to look for cushions made of a material that is easy to wipe off and clean.
