Where and Why To Add an Outdoor Bench

Seating is an important part of any outdoor oasis, whether it be a patio, porch, deck or yard. Because most homeowners use this space for relaxing and entertaining, you will want to ensure that there are plenty of different types of seating available, depending on what you wish to do. It just makes sense to upgrade your space and add an outdoor bench – and here are the reasons why as well as suggestions for where to place them.

Benches are Great for Conversing

This Opal bench from Jensen Leisure is inviting and looks great.

Perhaps the most important benefit of an outdoor bench is that it encourages conversation. Benches are naturally made to seat more than one person and if you take a seat on one, chances are someone else will join you. An outdoor bench provides a connection, both physical and emotional. There is very little space between two people who are enjoying a beautiful afternoon next to each other.

Benches are Space Savers

Unlike traditional outdoor chairs which require room to move in and out and around, benches can save space – a great consideration when you are dealing with a backyard of minimal size. They can easily be placed up against a wall or lining a path. Chairs are bulky and a single seating option whereas outdoor benches are sleek and allow more than one person to sit comfortably. Some outdoor benches can even seat up to four people, eliminating the need for a traditional table and four chairs. For maximum space consideration, opt for a bench without arms or a back as it can be placed nearly anywhere in your yard.

Benches are Durable and Easy to Maintain

When you add an outdoor bench to your outdoor space, you can pretty much set it and forget it. Depending on the material you choose, such as wrought iron or aluminum, you may never have to do any maintenance. A quick hose down with water and perhaps a brush to get into the corners and crevices will remove bird droppings, dirt and dust. Because there are no moving parts, there is nothing to break or replace.

Outdoor Benches Offer Stability

Made to withstand plenty of bad weather, this Michigan cushion bench will stay in place even in high winds.

If you live in an area where the outdoor space is subject to high winds or severe weather, bench seating is preferable to chairs, which are often lightweight and can be easily moved. Particularly wrought iron or hardwood outdoor benches provide a lot of stability, making them a great seating option poolside. This is also a plus if you have someone in your home with mobility issues. Add an outdoor bench to your front yard if you are worried about theft in the neighborhood as they will be very difficult to easily take.

Aesthetic Value

This Plymouth bench is a graceful beauty all on its own but also lets the foliage in your yard take center stage.

Lastly, when you add an outdoor bench to your outdoor living space, it is sure to enhance your home’s aesthetic value. Bench seating is available in many different styles, everything from contemporary, clean lines to the more decorative and detailed features you will find on a traditional wrought iron bench. No matter what material you choose, there are plenty of gorgeous designs available to make your yard stand out from the crowd.

With these reasons to add an outdoor bench and plenty of places where it makes sense to put one, you can start shopping now for all the benches available from Hauser’s Patio shown here.
