Vallee. Bench. November 12th , 2017.
Outdoor benches are typically installed once and not moved for years. Thats why one of the most important criteria when is their solidity and longevity. Benches made of too thin parts are likely to break up after some time of using. Steel benches that are not well treated will rust and untreated wooden benches will rot. A good idea when examining the bench longevity is to check for other benches from the same model that have been used for long time.
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.
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. Also take a look at how the bench is put together. Higher quality benches will have joints that are welded together rather than screwed or bolted.
The strength can be examined right there in the store. If you are purchasing online you may need to ask what weight is the bench guaranteed to sustain.The best way to examine the comfort of a bench is to sit on it and try it. You may want to consider adding pillows and/or cushions on the bench. Benches with backs are usually more comfortable than backless benches. Some benches also have armrests which can be considered another positive sign.
Some vanities come with vanity benches, but others do not. Also sometimes it may be necessary to replace the bench, especially in the case of an antique vanity that is now being used once again. Here are some things to keep in mind while shopping for vanity benches. One of the most important things about shopping for vanity benches is the style. This is because the bench must look like it naturally goes with the vanity.
