You can use them for seating, storage, display and more!
Benches are just about the most flexible and functional pieces of furniture you can purchase! Just think of where you can use them:
Benches come in all shapes, sizes, materials and colors; and they’re so easy to move around for multiple uses as the need arises. Use them:
Benches can also include storage underneath – in closed drawers or cabinets or in wicker baskets - for blankets and pillows in the bedroom or for boots, umbrellas and other outdoor weather gear in the entry way.
Benches come in most any style from rustic to high tech. Materials range from wood to metal to upholstered fabric. For a unique look, have a bench made from recycled barn wood or purchase a used church pew! Two or three small benches can be put together to make a long shape – or separated for flexible placement in a room.
Always make sure any bench in your house is built to be sturdy. Even if you think the bench isn’t for seating, you know it will happen at some point, and you don’t want it to collapse!
Add flexibility, function and beauty to your décor with a bench or two!
It makes your guests feel welcome and adds to your home's ambiance.
For a while, many people weren’t interested in a formal dining room and even converted their dining rooms into libraries, billiard rooms or offices. Today the dining room is back! Most homeowners want to create a beautiful setting for dining experiences with their family and friends.
A dining room is about fashion and function. Function is key, but at the same time the dining room is about so much more than just eating a meal. It’s about the experience and the ambiance people feel when they dine in your home.
Consider how you use your dining room before choosing the décor and furniture. Your table is the anchor of your room, and the chairs are key. These are long term investments that you’ll have forever if you purchase high quality. And don’t forget a sideboard or china cabinet to store dishes, silverware and linens close at hand.
Here are some tips to optimize your dining room:
