Leigh Rich. Benches. January 29th , 2018.
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.
Many outdoor benches are multi-purpose, for example, they can be used in city parks, in malls, as well as serving as great garden benches. In this article I will provide some examples of the many types and styles of garden benches available. However, there are even more than these to choose from: Standard garden and park bench: This kind of bench is sold most commonly six feet in length, but that is also available as short as four feet, redefines the traditional park bench style. The bench has a flat long seat and a wooden frame and legs. There is a gap between the bench seat and the bench seat back, however this is a very comfortable type of garden bench.
It is astounding to know just how many garden bench styles exist nowadays. When you are ready to occupy that bare spot in your garden or patio with a few outdoor benches, dont look only at the ordinary outdoor storage bench. Even though they can be practical, a storage bench used outdoors will not always be as appealing as other sorts of garden benches would. Contribute elegant charm to your veranda with a classic bench or take a trendy approach with some reprocessed material or even metal benches. Many contemporary styles of benches are desired but these arent what you visualize when you hear someone say the word bench. Take for instance, an arbour bench or a tree bench. A bench for potting flowers is wonderful with a few planter boxes and allows you to keep all your gardening tools altogether as well as displaying your beautiful creations. Arbour benches make your garden space beautiful and convenient. A tree bench, also known as a curved around the tree bench, makes your landscaping the centerpiece of your home. The tree bench beckons everyone to sit and gather around.
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.
Hall Tree Benches If your residence does not have an entryway closet, it can easily become a mess of coats and hats all piled one on top of the other. Having someplace to put these items can be resolved by using a hall tree bench. An excellent small entryway bench, these benches come in different sizes and have a seat to make it easy to remove shoes or boots. They have decorative backs and the entire look of these units is one of a great piece of furniture. If the foyer should be too small to small for placement of a hall tree bench, the fashionable design of these units will see them looking at home in the living room or family room. If you happen to be lucky enough to have a mudroom, there is no better place for the hall tree benches.
