Deanne Grimes. Benches. January 18th , 2018.
The piano bench industry grew from the desire of piano manufacturing companies to focus solely on the manufacturing of pianos. The bench was, for the most part, an afterthought. Many bench companies got their start in the early 1900s by contracting with the piano manufacturers to offer benches in multiple styles that would match the exact finish and leg style of the piano being bought and sold. As the piano would move from owner to owner the bench would not always make the trip, creating a need for the replacement bench manufacturer. The other primary reason for the piano bench manufacturers existence is the fact that the piano bench is typically handled very roughly by many teachers and students alike. The constant movement and scraping against the floor as the bench is pushed in and out leads to excessive nicks, wear and tear on the bench. Proud musicians like their equipment to standout and a scraped piano bench is something that can be easily replaced and made to look like new again. Several options to consider when purchasing a new piano bench are listed below.
Style and size One of the most important things about shopping for vanity benches is the style. This is because the bench must look like it naturally goes with the vanity. Also the size comes into play here as well because an oversized vanity bench will not match a dainty vanity. One thing shoppers often notice when shopping for vanity benches is the relationship between style and size. The size of the bench certainly does say a lot about the style of it. Measuring is also very important before shopping for vanity benches. Measure the distance from the floor to the underside of the vanity, and do not forget to take into consideration the amount of space your legs will need under the vanity. Also measure the width of the space where the bench sits underneath the vanity. A bench that is too long will not fit into the space, and this can be difficult if you ever need a little extra space.
If storage is not what you had in mind by purchasing an indoor bench, then think about what other kind of use it will be for. If the bench is for people who are removing their shoes at the door, then you may want a smaller bench that will fit in the entryway. Just remember to measure the amount of space that is available before setting out to select the right bench. 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.
Wood Finishes. Piano bench manufacturers offer a wood finish to match any finish provided by the piano manufacturer. It is very easy to get an exact match as long as you review the choices you are offered. When choosing a bench to match a mahogany piano you will need to bear in mind that there might be four shades of mahogany available from the bench manufacturer and you should select accordingly. Most bench manufacturers will offer a dark mahogany, medium mahogany (also called cherry), a brown mahogany, and a Steinway mahogany (they are popular enough and just a slight shade different that they have a shade named after the piano). Most finishes will come in a high gloss offering as well, though it will likely cost a little more money to get it. If your piano is a high gloss piano, such as a grand piano likely has, you should match it.
However, if a teak garden bench is not in your budget, hardwood benches are additionally a terrific option and much more affordable. You can locate hardwood benches in various designs and with several unique finishes. You can easily paint a bench made of hardwood, but a teak bench must not be painted because of the oils that are in the wood. Benches made of hardwood may be relocated from one spot to another since theyre fairly light. While hardwood is not as heavy as some wood varieties, youll find it to be long-wearing and solid. Certainly a bench made of hardwood also smells great.
