You’ve picked out the bed, the side tables and some one-of-a-kind art for the walls. What more could your bedroom need? A bedroom bench! This useful, versatile piece of furniture adds storage, a seating area and style to your space.
Here are our tips for choosing the perfect bedroom bench:
Take out your measuring tape
The perfect bedroom bench will stretch across most of your bed, leaving a few inches on either side. Measure the width of your bed and choose a bench that is 80 to 90 percent of that measurement. Height is another measurement to consider. Choose a bench that’s a few inches shorter than the bed.
Choose a contrasting material
Unless you’re buying a complete furniture set, buy your bed first. Then, choose a bedroom bench in a contrasting material to create visual interest. For example, if your bed frame is wooden, look for an upholstered bench, and vice versa.
Think about function
One of the best things about bedroom benches is the added storage space they provide. If you’re short on dresser space, pick a bedroom bench with drawers, which could function as a mini-dresser. If you like to sit on the bench and take off your shoes at the end of the day, look for a bench that has a shelf for shoes.
