Bench seating is one of our most popular products. One of the reason for this popularity is because they are extremely versatile pieces of outdoor furniture. Below we consider what makes the bench so versatile and explore how you can use this super handy piece of outdoor furniture creatively to make the most of your outdoor space!
What makes bench seating so flexible and useful?
Firstly their length and height can easily be customised to fit specific outdoor requirements and meet individual customer needs. Outdoor benches can be built from a range of different materials from classic silver aluminium to colourful powder coated bench seating, traditional timber and recycled plastic composite to name a few.
Benches can have a backrest or no backrest, and can include comfortable armrests or can be open. They can have one simple plank to sit on or be made of many individual smaller slats to change the shape and the comfort of the seating.
Benches suit any environment from school playgrounds, to team benches on the oval, scenic benches overlooking waterways, park benches, benches on roadsides or trails and so much more. Benches can be cemented into the ground as an inground bench or they can be secured with bolts into a concrete pad as an above ground bench seat, or they can be portable to allow bench seating to be moved around and placed depending on the event or changing circumstance. It’s the combination of all these variables that make bench seating so wonderfully useful.
