The material used for making cushions should be water-resistant and easy to clean. Some people prefer stowing their cushion when not in use but most never do that. So durable and long lasting cushions should be bought to avoid unnecessary replacement. Today cushions are even made with natural materials for the more green minded. Some of the most used materials are fibres bamboo long-lasting hemp cloth and cushions coated with vegetable oil for durability. The price of the pads varies with the quality and they are available in plenty of designs.
At the end of a bed. A sleek bench at the end of the bed gives you a place to prop a leg while tying a shoe or pulling on tights. It also acts as a beautiful visual anchor. Ideally the top of the bench should be a few inches below the finished top of the bedding (once sheets and duvets are factored in) for a pleasing play of heights. Accent it with a few books and baubles leave an aged wood one unadorned or dress it only in an interesting material like this subtle faux snakeskin.
Strengthening the overall design of a space. This kitchen and living space have strong horizontal lines running through them. Use of chairs would break that line and disrupt the intended flow through the space. In these rooms the bench becomes another important design element.
When choosing a garden bench remember that certain woods do not withstand the outside elements well. You will do well choosing cedar teak cypress and mahogany for instance. Another option although some people believe it takes away from the natural look is a wrought iron garden bench or a plastic garden bench. Finally concrete marble stone and granite are also beautiful and durable but unfortunately unless they have a cushion they are not very comfortable. When buying or building a wood garden bench remember the cardinal rule - the fewer screws and bolts the better the finished bench will look.
