Just remember that cushions and pillows are a great way to add even more personality to a bench. Another accessory you also might want to consider is a footstool. However, remember that adding a footstool will take up quite a bit of space, so only consider doing it if you have plenty of extra space. Measuring is even more important when you are considering getting a footstool because of the extra space that is involved. Just remember not to purchase so much furniture that your home looks cluttered. If there is any doubt in your mind about whether the bench will add unnecessary clutter, then think about other ways to decorate.
Piano Bench Tops. The most common type of piano bench top is the hardwood bench top. Most have an optional model available with a music storage compartment that is very handy for sheet music or other music accessories (my kids will hide things in our bench all the time). Fancier and more expensive seat tops will be upholstered in fabric or even leather. Most bench manufacturers have lots of fabric choices to select from and they can be made to match your interior décor without issue. Vinyl is a nice substitute for real leather if budget is a concern. I personally like the fabric seat over a leather or vinyl seat top because of the capability of the fabric to breathe.
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.
An indoor bench is a great way to add style, class, and even secret storage room to any space. An indoor bench can say anything you want to say about a room. It can be contemporary, modern, classic, or antique. The most important thing about any piece of furniture in your home is that it shares a little piece of your personality, and a bench is no different. Here are some tips to keep in mind when purchasing an indoor bench. Type of Wood Most indoor benches are wood, or they have at least some wood in them. The first thing to think about when selecting a bench is the type and color of the wood you already have in your home. If the bench will go in a room where you have other furniture, try to match the wood of the bench with the other pieces. If it will go in an entryway or hallway, then think about what other things are around them. You can match an indoor bench to kitchen cabinets or bathroom cabinets, wood trim, or just about anything else in your home. You just dont want the bench to look out of place.
Garden benches can be a great addition to any yard as they will give you a place to sit and relax and look over your garden. Here are a few tips for what to look for when purchasing a garden bench. o Look at the bench material - Many Garden benches are made of wood and you must know what type of wood as they do not all last the same amount of time or look the same. Pine wood looks great but it will not last a long time. Some of the better woods for benches are cedar, redwood or cypress. Teak is one of the better choices for wood as it lasts a long time and has a great silvery shine over time. But teak is also one of the more expensive woods. Metal benches and concrete benches are more durable, especially to the elements, but they are also not as comfortable as wooden benches.
