Bianca Nelson. Benches. February 01st , 2018.
Small benches can offer any number of solutions inside and outside the home. They are not difficult to install as many of them are freestanding, and the additional storage they offer can be utilized in a number of ways throughout the home. Wall-Mounted Benches Wall mounted benches are nice when you are sure the spot you place it in will be its permanent home. Small entryway benches would be one example. During inclement weather, children and adults alike can bring a lot of debris into the home. Having a wall mounted bench just inside the doorway, will give one the opportunity to sit and remove muddy or wet shoes.
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.
A Jansen artist bench is the Cadillac of benches, and it is reflected in the price. Compared to other benches however, even those made by other American manufacturers, it is definitely worth the price, and like everything else is life, you get what you pay for. Take into account, that their benches are meant to last for many years, if not decades (they do use a thick, heavy duty polyester foam which will not break down), and that you are placing the piano bench next to a multi-thousand dollar instrument. When the piano is the focal point of your room, you do not want to put something cheap next to it, and putting a cheap bench next to a Steinway piano, it will definitely stick out.
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.
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.
