Yolette. Bench. November 10th , 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.
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.
Of course the price also matters. If a bench is too cheap compared to others in the same class then you can be sure it isnt that good. The low price may be due to hidden defects or just low quality materials. On the other hand some design studios overprice their benches calling them designer models. Think well whether you are really getting something exceptional, and that you really need it before spending thousands on a single bench.
Benches are not good or bad just based on size, but the bench should be large enough for your own needs. If more than two people will sit on it at a time, it should be at least 5 feet long. The seat shouldnt be too low to the ground which is a frequent problem with DIY benches. On the other hand the largest bench isnt always the best. You should consider the space you have and where the bench will be located, and make sure it will fit well. This is really important for indoor benches.
For heavy work, a large bench made of wood is recommended. If you are going to do a light job, then you only need to get a small portable work bench. There are many different style of benches, places to put them, and uses for them. When most people here the word bench they usually think of the traditional park bench. Though the park bench is the most well known of the bench styles, it is hardly the only one.
