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.

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 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.

Nothing can make a home look smaller than items piled in every room. Adding small indoor benches to nearly every part of your home will make the entire area seem larger. Small benches can be added to childrens rooms for a place where toys and games can be kept. Entryway benches can hold boots, shoes, and umbrellas. Bedroom benches are a great place to store extra bedding and pillows. Out of season clothing will store nicely in a bench that is lined with cedar. Sizes can be based on the amount of room that can be spared. There really isnt any place where small benches cant be placed and put to good use. They can be ordered to accommodate specific storage plans, such as drawers and doors. Some will have no back if they are going to be permanently installed and the wall behind the bench will act as the back. Others will be completely closed in and can be moved around the home as you see fit.

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.
