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.

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.

This is because the bench must look like it naturally goes with the vanity. Also the size comes into play here as well because an oversized vanity bench will not match a dainty vanity. One thing shoppers often notice when shopping for vanity benches is the relationship between style and size. The size of the bench certainly does say a lot about the style of it. Measuring is also very important before shopping for vanity benches. Measure the distance from the floor to the underside of the vanity, and do not forget to take into consideration the amount of space your legs will need under the vanity. Also measure the width of the space where the bench sits underneath the vanity. A bench that is too long will not fit into the space, and this can be difficult if you ever need a little extra space.

If the bench is for people who are removing their shoes at the door, then you may want a smaller bench that will fit in the entryway. Just remember to measure the amount of space that is available before setting out to select the right bench. Accessories While a bench is an accessory in itself, sometimes you may also wish to liven up the space even more with some accessories. Soft cushions or pillows can add some additional color to a bench, and they can make any bench become comfortable. If you are positive that you want to incorporate specific colors into the bench, then there is a very good chance that you will need to purchase cushions and pillows for it.

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.

Remember that outdoor benches will still show some age, even if you apply protectant year after year, so expect a little bit of color change, no matter what kind of steps you are taking to protect the bench. Weathered Teak Of course many people really enjoy the look of weathered teak, so many of these steps will not be necessary if you prefer to enjoy the grey teak. It takes several months for teak to fade from its original light brown color into grey, although this may happen a bit sooner if the bench is an outdoor bench. Just remember that teak will always be durable and resist splitting, even after it begins to have that beautiful grey weathered look.

You can locate hardwood benches in various designs and with several unique finishes. You can easily paint a bench made of hardwood, but a teak bench must not be painted because of the oils that are in the wood. Benches made of hardwood may be relocated from one spot to another since theyre fairly light. While hardwood is not as heavy as some wood varieties, youll find it to be long-wearing and solid. Certainly a bench made of hardwood also smells great.

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.

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.
