One of the best ways to enrich your bedroom is to add a nice end of bed bench if you have room for it. Especially if you have a lot of room that you need to fill. The end of bed bench has stayed a popular piece of furniture for probably centuries.
Besides making your bedroom look better and more stylish, a bench can also be quite practical. You will gain extra space for seating, which will come handy when changing clothes or put your makeup on, and you can also use some benches to store the bedding that’s not in use.
Before getting an end of bed bench for your place, you need to consider some things first. Make sure that you carefully measure your bed and space around it to get the right size. Also, you want to match the bench with the furniture, so you don’t end up with a bulky end of bed bench in an otherwise light décor.
When it comes to style, you will naturally want to match the tone and color as well as the material. Modern benches will probably have steel frames, while the traditional ones use full wood most of the time and they often come with plenty of cushioning. Some of the best woods for an end of bed bench are mahogany, walnut, oak or teak wood since they are durable and look rich and beautiful.
If you need more storage space from your bench, you will probably have to sacrifice on style a bit, but not necessarily. You can still find benches that will meet most of your needs, whether you want to have a comfortable place to sit on or need a lot of storage for your clothes and bedding.
