Choosing between a storage bench and an accent bench comes down to your decorative and organizational needs. Both styles provide extra seating, but storage benches are ideal for keeping linens, shoes, blankets and off-season clothing out of sight but close at hand. These functional pieces are a smart choice for tight spaces like hallways and entryways, and they pair well with wall-mounted storage shelves. Accent benches, on the other hand, ensure comfortable seating thanks to their back support and upholstered finishes. Place them throughout your home as needed to liven up your decor and accommodate house guests, and of course, to embolden the overall design of your home!
