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.
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.
Quality As with all types of furniture, quality is always extremely important. There is nothing worse than relaxing to put on makeup and then falling to the floor because the bench broke. Having a basic understanding of what makes quality vanity benches can really help with the selection process. Many vanity benches are metal, and one way to judge the quality of the metal is by checking the weight. However, most vanity benches are also very dainty, so it may be difficult to judge the quality of metal by the weight of the bench. Just remember that a very light bench may not offer as good quality as one that is slightly heavier.
o Look at the price - These are just like every other item in that you will be getting what you paid for. Many benches that are less expensive will not last as long. It also depends on what type of wood you choose for a wooden garden bench. Pine is less expensive, and will not last as long, and teak will last a long time but is one of the more expensive woods. A good tip, no matter what type of benches you choose, is to weatherproof your bench to make sure that they will last longer. o If you cannot find any garden benches you like around, get advice from people that visit your home often and visit the home of the people you know for more ideas. You can also have custom made ones to get exactly what you want but it can be more expensive to do. Often the best place to shop for benches of any kind is online. You can browse the largest selection of benches from the comfort of your own home.
