Clarice. Bench. November 06th , 2017.
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.
Vanity benches serve dual function in that they allow you to leisurely complete what is an important part of your day especially if you are a working woman. Not only do vanity benches complement other personal vanities, they also provide an unhurried setting where you can complete your personal tasks quickly and efficiently. Vanity benches are usually backless and are ideally crafted for one person only.
These welds will also be located in very inconspicuous places if the bench is well made. For wood benches, look for one that comes in very few pieces. Try to get a feel for the joints although judging joints on a wood piece is a bit more difficult because it can be hard to see the quality construction. Try sitting on the bench and moving around a little bit. If the bench does not wiggle or creak, then there is a good chance that it is of high quality.
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.
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.
