Bedroom Benches - The Ease of Decorating With Them
Do you want to add a sense of style and sophistication to your bedroom space but are not sure how to accomplish it? Do you have a large bedroom that would benefit from the addition of a gorgeous, functional piece of furniture? Is your bedroom lacking in closet space? If so, you should consider getting a bedroom bench.
Far from being just another piece of furniture, bedroom benches bring unparalleled grace and elegance to bedrooms with all types of décor. Whether you prefer rich upholstered bedroom benches or the more practical, but just as beautiful, storage benches, you can truly customize your space and add that needed touch without spending a lot of money or doing a complete remodel.
Upholstered bedroom benches can be used to add a romantic or Old-World feel to your intimate space. Available in a wide range of wood finishes, upholstered bedroom benches can be matched and blended with practically any existing bedroom furniture or can be selected to make a bold statement or to become the focal point of the room.
Bedroom benches can also be covered with rich, colorful fabrics chosen from a large tapestry of colors and designs. Want something a little more personal or customized? Simply cover your upholstered bedroom bench with your own needlepoint work or family heirloom fabrics.
Need some extra storage space? Storage bedroom benches can be the perfect solution for non-existing or small and cramped closets. They are ideal for storing off-season bed linens and clothes or personal treasures and family keepsakes.
Not only are these pieces practical, they are beautiful as well. Storage bedroom benches are available in a wide range of wood finishes including oak and deep, rich mahogany. These pieces can also feature intricate hand carving and delicately hand painted designs. Some even come complete with upholstered cushions that can be chosen to color coordinate with your existing décor.
Bedroom benches are usually placed at the foot of the bed and can be an ideal place to store your bedspread and throw pillows when the bed is being used. They also come in handy as a place to sit when dressing or lacing up your shoes. You can turn them into showpieces with the clever placement of decorative quilts, collectibles and/or brick-a-brack. Or you can simply let them make a statement on their own.
Do you want something simple but elegant? Maybe an exquisitely designed wrought iron footboard bench complete with a cushion covered in rich damask fabric would be more suited to your tastes and decorating style.
The addition of a bedroom bench to your décor is also very affordable. Pricing usually starts out as low as $200. Of course, you can spend more than that depending on what style of bench you pick and what custom options you choose.
As you can see there is a large variety of options when it comes to choosing a bedroom bench. No matter what piece you finally decide to purchase, you can be sure that your bedroom bench will become one of your most treasured possessions.
