In this article I will provide some examples of the many types and styles of garden benches available. However, there are even more than these to choose from: Standard garden and park bench: This kind of bench is sold most commonly six feet in length, but that is also available as short as four feet, redefines the traditional park bench style. The bench has a flat long seat and a wooden frame and legs. There is a gap between the bench seat and the bench seat back, however this is a very comfortable type of garden bench.

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.

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.

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.
Bianca Nelson Benches, 2018-01-23 11:26:04. Also take a look at how the bench is put together. Higher quality benches will have joints that are welded together rather than screwed or bolted. These welds will also be located in very inconspicuous places if the bench is well made. For wood benches, look for one that comes in very few pieces. Try to get a feel for the joints although judging joints on a wood piece is a bit more difficult because it can be hard to see the quality construction. Try sitting on the bench and moving around a little bit. If the bench does not wiggle or creak, then there is a good chance that it is of high quality. For upholstered bench tops, look at how the cushion is attached to the bench. A cushion that is loose or looks like it is about to come loose will not do. The best choice is a cushion that is attached to the top of the bench and cannot be removed. Cushions that are attached with ties are usually not a good choice for a vanity bench. Also remember to look for cushions made of a material that is easy to wipe off and clean.
Sheree Dunlap Benches, 2018-01-23 11:10:32. 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.
Dorthy Hyde Benches, 2018-01-23 11:22:51. As it is with a lot of outdoor furniture, wooden benches are the most popular of garden and backyard benches. The most common woods for these benches are cedar, teak, pine, and cypress. Most of these garden and outdoor benches are very easily maintained, especially when made from cedar and teak. Cypress is similar to teak and cedar which also makes it very popular. All three of these woods are known for their durability and natural oils that help to keep the wood looking younger for longer. These oils also repel insects and protect from warping, rotting, or decay. These natural oils also keep insects at bay which can be positively wonderful in a garden or anywhere else in the great outdoors. These benches are also made of plastics, which also have their desirable qualities. Recycled plastic benches are virtually maintenance free and just as strong and durable as the wooden benches, which are great qualities for any occasion. These styles of benches also come in a variety of style and colors. The metal made benches are probably the least popular in the world of benches.
Lacey Love Benches, 2018-01-23 11:19:38. 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.

Solid wood benches will last a lot longer and take a lot more abuse than benches that are made of MDF, or medium density fiberboard. If you arent sure whether the bench is sold wood or MDF, then just try to pick it up and see how heavy it is. A solid wood bench will be a lot heavier than one made of MDF. Use Another important consideration to make when choosing an indoor bench is what kind of use it will see. A great way to add additional storage in any room is to add a storage bench. This type of bench is typically a large wooden case with a seat on top of it. There may even be a back on the bench, although most people will not realize that there is storage underneath the bench.
Leigh Rich Benches, 2018-01-23 11:16:29. Leg Style. I can tell right away when the bench is a replacement bench and not the bench that originally came with the piano by the fact that most people have a bench that does not have legs to match the leg style of the piano. I may be a little bit of a stickler about this but you should be able to find a bench to match and you should make the effort to find one since it will be a part of your home for decades. Most benches are available with classic straight legs, spade legs, and sometimes antique types of legs such as Louis XIV are available. Bench Length and Width. There are three types of benches available to select from.
