Accent benches are a subtle decorative touch to fill in space that still feels empty or underutilized. Obviously, a bench’s practical use is to provide seating, but its function is in stride with its eye appeal. Accent bench top cushions can be decorated with books and other reading material, a light matching blanket, beverage trays, baskets, and of course, pillows. Like console tables, benches can be a shorter piece that dresses up an entryway or hallway.
The best places to use an accent bench are:
An accent bench right outside a laundry room could provide a flat surface for folding. Benches without backrests have wider placements around the house. Silver has an additional note of luxury to accent benches simply because of the color. Smaller, silver accent benches are perfect choices to be placed directly in front of vanities or large mirrors. A bathroom bench with extra storage is an excellent place for towels and other supplies. Bedroom benches should be a little shorter than the bed, excluding armrests. Putting on shoes, jewelry, or clothes is naturally easier on a surface which is lower and firmer than a bed.
Silver accent benches offer a nice color variation to white walls and light-colored carpet. Because of its metallic luster, most benches in silver feature metal casing on the sides and support structure. Modern benches feature bold angles and geometric lines, with sleek accents and minimalist undercarriages. Wood and upholstered benches tend to have independent legs. Wooden legs can feature carved designs and inviting, stylish curves.
For a bold personal expression, there are solid, cast resin benches polished to a silvery mirror gloss. Blurring the line between sculpture and furniture, they resemble moon rock and could be used to enhance hammered metal décor. Cushions are available in a variety of colors to tie your silver bench in with the other decorative touches of the room. These silver accent benches range in price from $298 to $2790.
