Today, as many people are downsizing their homes to conserve energy or save money or both, space for everything becomes a problem. A practical solution is an old colonial idea somewhat modernized, an Upholstered Storage Bench. Even if downsizing is not happening, who doesn’t need extra storage space for those hard to place, but necessary items?
These benches are perfect for the foyer, or the bedroom, or the dining room. In fact, they will go in just about any room in the house, even the eat-in kitchen. In addition to storage, they can be used for extra seating or even as an extra table or coffee table.
The Upholstered Storage Bench comes in all sizes, shapes and configurations. There are benches that look like chaise lounges. Some are square and boxy, while others are rectangular. Many have arms at either end while others have nothing at all, or are rimmed around the top. No matter what the decor is, there is an Upholstered Storage Bench to suit, whether it is French provincial, Italian Renaissance, or modern.
In addition to the shapes and styles, these benches are available in any covering imaginable. From tufted leather to hounds tooth fabric to overstuffed with rolled arms, the Upholstered Storage Bench is versatile enough for any home. Some benches are made to blend in such as the camouflage style bench for the kid’s room, while others are made to stand out as a focal point in a room such as the tufted white leather bench.
After the shape and style and covering of the bench, the next point is color. Not just white, gray, brown and black; no, today there is a rainbow of colors available for the Upholstered Storage Bench. Pinks and Greens and Herringbone and Purple; if it can be imagined, there is probably a bench already made in that color.
When considering size, one of the first things to do is determine exactly what is going to be stored in the bench. This will probably also determine in what room the bench will be placed. A bench large enough to accommodate what is to be stored, but at the same time not overpower the room is the optimum arrangement.
