How to choose an ideal garden bench?

Do you like to spend a lot of time outdoors in a country house? Then you should think about buying a garden bench. It will become a favorite place for relaxation and will complement the landscape design. It can be placed in the recreation area or at the entrance to the house. It remains only to decide which construction to buy.

What material to select?

 If you’re looking for a garden bench in Dubai or another city with sunny weather, we recommend you look at wooden models. As a rule, they are opened with varnish to protect the product from moisture and temperature changes. However, over time, the bench still begins to deteriorate, but not in a dry climate. The most durable are considered conifers, oak, and cherry.

Plastic – light, inexpensive, not afraid of moisture and temperature changes. Furniture made of plastic is easy to care for, it serves for a long time, but does not look too presentable. Besides, the plastic is very unstable.

Metal benches are very durable and look original. They are covered with anti-corrosion agents, so they are not afraid of mechanical damage and change in weather. Note that they are very heavy and you will not be able to move them often.

Stone furniture is also very reliable. Marble and granite can serve many years and look aesthetic but are more expensive than other materials.

Which style and type should I choose?

 Benches without backrest – the simplest products, as a rule, of metal and wood. Such models will best fit into the loft or minimalist areas.

Metal benches with wooden backrests are suitable for decoration with a plot in the style of Art Nouveau and classic. Fully wooden models will look good in rustic style, eco, and Provence. Regardless of style, by choosing a bench with a backrest, you can better relax. Also, a good option is models with armrests.

On sale you can also find a construction two in one – benches combined with a table. This option helps to equip a dining area in the open air for 4-6 people.
