As a divider. In an open floor plan creating small zones can give a room a more orderly feeling and be a more efficient use of space. Bordering a seating group or TV nook with a bench helps define that zone without creating a visual wall that might shrink the space. Plus a backless bench can be used from any direction allowing it to bridge different seating areas (or become an additional table for snacks or festive supplies).
As a small sofa or banquette in a tight space. Add a few pillows and a bench can practically shape-shift into a sofa. Pile up the pillows (in different shades and patterns) to cozy up a low-back bench or simply push a bench against a wall to hold the pillows and voilà you’ve got a plush seat solution. Create a breakfast nook banquette a pit stop outside the bedroom a dreamy window seat. With a bench in your decor arsenal you’ve got so many options you might just need to take a seat and think about them all.
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.
