Accent And Storage Benches
Homeowners who are looking to create an attractive and functional entryway should consider the advantages of using various types of benches in order to provide an easy way to keep the area clutter free, but convenient as well. There are many attractive storage benches that can be placed by the front door and these benches offer an easy place to store everything from shoes and mittens to your keys and handbag. One of the best things about placing any type of storage furniture in an entryway is that it can be extremely convenient. Having a place to put things when you come home can be a great time saver and certainly helps to keep everyone organized.
If you have children in the home, you know how easy it is for the entryway to become cluttered. When you use storage furniture, everyone can learn exactly where they need to place their things in order to keep the area neat and organized. This is a great way to avoid those last minute searches for missing items and it helps to create a more pleasing entrance into the home. Depending on the type of storage bench you choose, you can have a great place to keep a wide variety of items and when you need these items, they are always ready to go.
Additionally, storage benches often have a very attractive look and can even be used as simple accent benches to add to the entire décor of the area. These benches are available in so many different styles and finishes that finding something that is practical, such as simple storage benches, or something that is purely aesthetically pleasing, such as accent benches, can be a lot of fun. Creating an area in the entryway where everyone can keep some important essentials close at hand, but also keeping the area attractive, is certainly an important factor for many homeowners.
Benches can be used to create an inviting space to the layout of your rooms. A few nicely appointed seating elements can change the entire atmosphere of a space from stiff and too formal to welcoming and warm.
Adding a bench by an entrance welcomes guests without saying a word. Match the benches to the décor of your home or create greater visual interest by contrasting the styles. If you place a multi-use storage bench by an entry, you also add a storage furniture
solution where it is often needed.
Benches can also be used to create functional spaces. Create a cozy reading nook with a nice traditional style bench
paired with the perfect floor lamp. Upholstered Ottoman style benches combined with an area rug creates an informal, Middle-Eastern influenced tea room.
Seating furniture can also help flesh out a design theme. A tropical style storage bench fits a more Oriental theme, and the hidden storage space helps preserve the traditionally clean and spare look of Far Eastern decor.
