Vanity benches used to be a thing of the past, but more and more women today are purchasing vanities for their bedrooms once again. A vanity is a great way to provide extra storage, especially for all those little extra items like cosmetics and hair accessories. Vanity benches provide ladies a place to sit while they apply makeup and fix their hair, and this is a luxury many women are enjoying once again. Some vanities come with vanity benches, but others do not. Also sometimes it may be necessary to replace the bench, especially in the case of an antique vanity that is now being used once again. Here are some things to keep in mind while shopping for vanity benches.
A teak bench is the perfect addition to any indoor or outdoor space. Teak benches are perfect for patios, covered porches, or garden areas. They make a great addition to a full set of teak patio furniture or as an accent piece in an entryway. Teak benches can make great places for people to remove their shoes before stepping into your home. Teak is a light brown colored tropical hardwood that begins to turn grey with age. Many people enjoy teak for its durability and color. Some people prefer to keep their benches the same color they were when they brought the benches home from the store, while others enjoy a weathered teak, which is much more rustic-looking. Whatever kind of teak you prefer, it is simply impossible to go wrong with a beautiful teak bench. Teak benches will last a very long time, whether they are for indoor or outdoor decors.
Taking this into account, if you are looking for a piano bench to go with your Steinway piano, the two most common options are either a wood top bench, or the above mentioned artist bench (the other option would be an upholstered top bench, which while more comfortable, does not highlight the elegance of the Steinway piano as much as a finished wood top bench does, and thus is less popular). Of the two choices, the most popular is the Jansen artist bench, for both its design and usability. If youve seen a Steinway piano in a concert hall, the adjustable artist bench with it is a Jansen (and its quality is such that it is perfect for performance halls, teaching studios, and home use).
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.
o Look how the bench is constructed - You need to find out how the bench is constructed especially if it is made of wood. The less screws and bolts used the better as it will be more durable. A good option is to look for a bench that has mortise and tenon joinery. o Look at the size of the bench - You have to consider the size of the bench and how many people will be using it before you purchase it. A bench that is four feet will be able to sit one person in comfort and two if they are sitting closer together. A five foot bench is a better seating bench with friends. It all depends what you want in that, will you be snuggling up on the bench or just sitting down relaxing with a friend? There are benches in many sizes but you should pinpoint its use before picking one.
