Ideas for Where to Use Benches In Your Home

My favorite way to switch up any room at home (well, one that does not involve any hammering, sawing or drilling new holes in my walls) is incorporating a space for a bench to bring style and functionality into a room.  Here are just a few ideas of spots to use benches in your home:

Entryway:
Create a landing zone in your entryway or front hallway with a bench.  This can be where you drop your belongings as soon as you walk in the door.  Even better, you will have everything you need in one place the next time you are on your way out the door and will never waste a single second searching endlessly for lost keys

Bedroom Bench:
A bench at the foot of the bed is an elegant detail for any bedroom and can even function as extra storage, a step stool, extra seating or in place of a footboard

Around Your Dining Table:
A dining bench can be used in combination with dining chairs or instead of dining chairs around your dining table.  A dining bench takes up no vertical space at all, unlike dining chairs, and can be tucked underneath your dining table when not in use.

Use as a Coffee Table
Using a bench is an unexpected and stylish alternative to a coffee table, offering all the same functionality and can even be an acceptable spot to put your feet up (most of the time).  Pictured here is our Modern Classics Exclusive Stainless Steel Bench being used as a coffee table for a wine-fueled game of checkers

You can see this bench and all our other modern benches at any one of our factory showrooms located in BellinghamChicago or Dallas!
