Gallia. Bench. November 09th , 2017.
You can match an indoor bench to kitchen cabinets or bathroom cabinets, wood trim, or just about anything else in your home. You just dont want the bench to look out of place. Another important consideration when thinking about type of wood is durability. 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.
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.
Their featured drawers and table space are perfect for any person who has a lot of guests or a big family. These potting benches make it easy to prepare drinks or food wherever you are outside. A person can now even customize their bench for a perfect match of their outdoor surroundings. There are also Arbor benches which offer a style like no other. As it is with a lot of outdoor furniture, wooden benches are the most popular of garden and backyard benches.
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. Another product you might find helpful is teak oil.
So, lets see what makes a good outdoor garden bench: First and foremost, you need to like how the bench looks. This is entirely personal and there is little to say here. But I recommend you check some image galleries online and see what kind of benches are available out there just so you get an idea. Then, the design of the bench must fit to some extend the design of your garden especially if you have other garden furniture.
