When choosing a garden bench remember that certain woods do not withstand the outside elements well. You will do well choosing cedar teak cypress and mahogany for instance. Another option although some people believe it takes away from the natural look is a wrought iron garden bench or a plastic garden bench. Finally concrete marble stone and granite are also beautiful and durable but unfortunately unless they have a cushion they are not very comfortable. When buying or building a wood garden bench remember the cardinal rule - the fewer screws and bolts the better the finished bench will look.
Use one long bench for multiple seating areas. Make the most of your space by using a built-in bench long enough to span several seating areas. Vary the height of your bench so you can position an outdoor dining table at one end and make a lounge area at the other end.
Integrate steps and seats for a smooth look. If you are working on a major patio remodel take into account the steps pathways and other elements during the planning process. Repeating materials like the wood and concrete shown here creates a cohesive look.
Finally the colour match should be made properly. Some of the benches or furniture is made with dark wood some with light wood and some are even painted. Choosing the right colour is very important to enhance the look and appearance of the space. The very important quality of the cushion is to withstand different elements of the weather such as sun rain snow or humidity.
