Combine Storage And Seating For Comfort And Convenience

A storage bench is a special piece of furniture because it serves more than one purpose. Most storage benches are designed to provide additional seating while adding storage space which is always at a premium in most homes. When well designed it also adds an attractive accent piece to it's surroundings.

There are a number of storage solutions available such as storage bins, storage boxes, storage ottomans, storage chests and others. The storage bench always works well because there never seems to be enough seating choices especially when entertaining.

These benches work well for storing extra throw pillows, blankets or quilts, toys, books, winter coats and anything else that needs to be out of site but handy when needed. Some have backs and arm rests while others are padded without backs and really serve well in groups because guests can sit on all four sides in order to face others and engage in conversation and are easily moved wherever needed.

You can purchase these benches in a variety of materials to fit almost any room decor. A storage bench underneath a window always works well. In a bedroom they are handy at the foot of a bed for storage and a place to sit while dressing or catching a quiet, quick cup of coffee away from the normal confusion of the rest of the household.
