The Best Benches: Favorites + Inspiration
Last week, you guys loved my round up of my favorite upholstered ottomans - so this week I’ve rounded up the best benches! Like ottomans, benches can serve so many purposes around the house. I love seeing them in front of fireplaces, in an entryway, or at the end of a bed. Benches also make fantastic flex setting for dining spaces - perfect for little ones or additional guests over holidays.
A few things to consider when selecting a bench for your space:
consider the location - if you’re placing a bench in front of a window, make sure it sits low enough to not block the view
select quality materials - benches are relatively inexpensive furniture pieces, but you’ll want it to be made of solid wood, quality woven wicker or a metal frame for sturdiness and longevity
measure twice, order once - benches come in a wide range of sizes, varying from vary narrow to extra long - tape out the measurements of the bench you’re looking at to ensure it fits in your space, with room to walk by
Below, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite design inspiration featuring benches for your Pinning pleasure!
