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.
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.
The wall mounted bench often has a hinged lid that can be lifted up and many of these items can be stored away. During winter months there is no place better for the storage of scarves, mittens, or gloves. Small foyer benches can certainly work for many purposes. Corner Benches At home or at work, the corner bench can do a lot to take up a minimum of space while offering a place to store items that would otherwise be hanging around all over the place. Corner stations are sturdy units that can be made of steel for the workplace and wood for the home. The numbers of shelves are optional and should be added based on the amount of use the corner bench will be getting. These indoor small benches offer the businessman and the home resident alike the satisfaction of knowing exactly where an item can be found.
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.
