Storage benches are a great way to cut clutter and get your outdoor tools and accessories organized. Plus, a storage bench offers extra seating for your outdoor area.
Extra storage space
Storage benches are great at the poolside or anywhere in the yard. They easily store garden tools, pool toys, rackets, balls, Frisbees, and extra bench cushions. They can also be used indoors as well. They can be a great bench at the foot of your bed, with extra storage space for extra blankets and pillows. Storage benches are also the perfect place to store games and recreational equipment in a family room or rec room.
Styles and Features of storage benches
Storage benches are available with or without backs. Some offer small storage shelves under the seat, or varying lengths of chest-sized storage space. Some outdoor storage benches even feature cooler liners to give you the space you need to keep a supply of cold beverages at hand. Some storage benches also have additional storage space in the arm rests. Most storage chests have a finger protecting feature to keep the lid from falling on fingers and causing injury.
Storage bench cushions
Some storage benches come with a cushion for extra comfortable seating. Cushion covers will last you a long time and look like new if they are made of moisture and stain-resistant fabric. This is especially important if the storage bench will be outside and next to a swimming pool. If you plan to use your bench outdoors or near the pool, you may want to consider a vinyl cushion. Vinyl is easy to wipe clean and will resist mildew.
Storage benches are constructed from several materials such as plastic and a variety of woods. Cedar is by far the most popular wood used in the construction of storage benches. This is because many people like its natural beauty and scent. Wood does not conduct heat the way plastic or metal does so wooden benches are a cool, comfortable seating option even on a hot summer afternoon. The same natural cedar oils that create the smell people like also keep insects away and fight pathogenic mold and fungi growth. This great natural repellant prevents you from having bug or mold problems with your bench.
Storage benches are very practical for any outdoor or indoor area. They allow you to have the extra seating you need while gaining some extra storage space as well. Shop Benches.com today!
