creative ways of using bench seating

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.

How can you use your bench seating creatively to make the most of your outdoor space?

Ideas for inspirational bench seating are endless and can take many shapes and forms, some more extravagant and exciting than others. Take a look at a couple of our favourites below:

Looking to inspire reading? This one may just do the trick as you daydream of an adventure to Narnia!

But you don’t have to go to these extremes to be creative and make an impact with your bench seating!
Building a practical or inspiring design with your bench seating or complementing your selection of bench seating with other outdoor furniture can be enough to make the difference between creating a user friendly space or an empty courtyard or school corner.

Here are some ideas

Tree Circle
Do you have a picturesque tree in a courtyard or playground that you would love to have seating around? Why not utilise tree circle bench seating that allows everyone to enjoy sitting under the natural shade and beauty of the trees in the environment.

Line up for team sports
Got your teams all ready on the pitch and need somewhere for the subs and coaches to have easy access on to the pitch and a great view of the game? Line up bench seating is perfect.

Along pathways
A walk is a wonderful way to get some relaxing exercise but it is also nice to stop and relax and take in more of the experience on some bench seating. Regular bench seating along walking tracks and trails provide a fabulous interlude to an afternoon stroll.

For your audience
Got a performance going on? Or is there a weekly tournament taking place at the bowls club. Get the portable benches out and arrange so everyone gets an amazing view of the performance or game.

Outdoor Learning
