Yolette. Bench. November 04th , 2017.
Go out and take a walk in the park right now. Do you like the benches there? Sure, they are well planned, very robust and maybe even in a good shape. Are they comfortable enough? Are they in sunny or shady places? Large enough? Do you see where I am going to? There are many things that make a bench good or bad. Its not just to go out and buy the first bench you see. It takes planning and evaluation.
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.
A good bench is a well placed bench. Even the best bench will be useless or bad if placed in the wrong location. The best location for outdoor benches are near patio areas, walks, outside of the garden fence, next to a tree or near the buildings wall. The place shouldnt be too sunny neither entirely shady. While most benches arent usually moved, its good to think whether you really want the bench staying where it is forever.
Perhaps you have come across numerous home improvement programs in DIY Network and noticed that almost all benches shown are made of wood. Indeed, wood is perhaps the common material that is used to build home work benches. Most wood home work benches are made from oak or maple wood. Sometimes, one or more types of wood are used to make a home work bench. For instance, the surface may be made of oak and the base is pinewood or other hardwood.
A solid wood bench will be a lot heavier than one made of MDF. Another important consideration to make when choosing an indoor bench is what kind of use it will see. A great way to add additional storage in any room is to add a storage bench. This type of bench is typically a large wooden case with a seat on top of it. There may even be a back on the bench, although most people will not realize that there is storage underneath the bench.
