Introduction to Accent Benches
A bench is a charming seating option for furniture that can add comfort, function, and style nearly anyplace in your home. Two no-fail spots for a bench are near a door, or at the foot of a bed. Bedroom benches are great to use for a little extra seating, and as a storage bench that you can casually place extra throws, pillows, or magazines for on-hand comfort and entertainment. When looking for a bed bench at the foot of your bed, it’s generally recommended that bedroom benches be at least four inches shorter than the bed itself. Consider scale when choosing bedroom benches since anything larger or significantly smaller will look awkward, and could pose as a potential toe-snubbing hazard. Entryway benches are great as a shoe storage bench, bringing distinguished seating and organization to your entryway. An entryway storage bench provides a comfortable place to sit when you take off your shoes and coat, and a place to store these items when you walk through your door. The general rule of thumb to follow for entryway benches is to find one wide enough to comfortably accommodate two seated people, so that you have enough room to place things by your side, and extra room for guests. Opt for entryway benches that measure at least 48 inches wide. Whatever application proves best for your needs, benches of all kinds (from a wooden bench to an upholstered bench), are a great design accessory that come in many eye-catching designs, styles, and colors at LuxeDecor.
Different Styles of Accent Benches
Benches can be found at LuxeDecor in traditional, casual, and modern styles in different fabrics, colors, sizes, and materials to complement any aesthetic and décor. They can be used anywhere from an entry bench, window bench, and as an end of bed bench. A storage bench seat brings added function wherever you place it, adding convenient seating and space to store your items. Try a storage ottoman bench by A.R.T. Furniture from the Egerton collection. This bench with storage is incredibly handsome and elegant, and makes a fabulous and functional addition to a foyer, living room, or den. The two drawers at the bottom make for convenient and discreet storage. You can find storage benches of all kinds at LuxeDecor from many of today’s leading home furnishing brands including Casana, Stanley Furniture, and Surya, among many other top-quality brands. The wood bench by Orange22 from the Minimal collection represents the ultimate in minimalism. Its unpretentious design truly accentuates the beautiful form and natural elements of its shape, and makes for an elegant and understated update on the classic wood bench. There are many appropriate styles of accent benches to choose from at LuxeDecor that will help you express your personality and sense of style.
Decorating With Accent Benches in Your Home
Accent benches don’t only belong at the foot of your bed or at the entrance by your door. There are a number of creative places you can put a bench for an unexpected element of surprise that will have you stand out from conventional décor schemes. For example, try a bench at your dining room table. You can go picnic-style with a short wooden bench by Greenington that can comfortably seat a gathering of people for casual style dining; or make things more comfortable (yet irresistibly stylish and lavish) by juxtaposing an upholstered wingback accent bench with a pair of matching upholstered chairs, for out-of-the-box seating that is a modern way to dress up your dining room. Flex your design muscles and experiment with colors, patterns, and arrangements so that you can inject your personal flair and style into your home.
