Romaine. Bench. November 10th , 2017.
Vanity benches used to be a thing of the past, but more and more women today are purchasing vanities for their bedrooms once again. 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.
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.
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. 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.
If storage is not what you had in mind by purchasing an indoor bench, then think about what other kind of use it will be for. 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. While a bench is an accessory in itself, sometimes you may also wish to liven up the space even more with some accessories.
However, remember that adding a footstool will take up quite a bit of space, so only consider doing it if you have plenty of extra space. Measuring is even more important when you are considering getting a footstool because of the extra space that is involved. Just remember not to purchase so much furniture that your home looks cluttered. If there is any doubt in your mind about whether the bench will add unnecessary clutter, then think about other ways to decorate.
