Window benches with storage offer charm and character to a room, make it appear airy, and give you extra space to keep stuff. Not only does this piece of furniture make the window the focal point of your room, but it also turns the otherwise unused floor space into a useful area.
Upholstered window benches with storages are probably the most common design you’ll find in the markets. They are sturdy. The padding gives it a sophisticated look. And, if you decide to amp up the look, you can do so with cushions and pillows of your choice. Some storage benches are flip top with a box under the seat to store things. Others have drawers in the front.
If you are looking for somewhat taller window benches with storage, you will also find models that offer two level of storage in the grooves under the seat. Some may combine drawers with shelves while other more chic designs may give you an upper layer of drawers and a lower layer of woven leaf and straw baskets.
Certain storage benches may come with armrests and rolled or slightly curved arms for an improved appearance. The upholstery could be leather, polyester, cotton, rayon, silk, linen, or acrylic. While the body of the wooden bench with storage is mostly wood, you will also find options like bamboo, plastic, metal, stainless steel, etc.
Even though a window bench is pretty much a permanent setting, as it’s design and size have to match the window and wall space around it, you may wish to move the furniture to another room. Or, you can utilize it for a different purpose, like setting it at the foot of a bed or using it in the dining area. Keeping that in mind, either buy something that is lighter as compared to most models, or has detachable wheels to roll the bench to other places.
