BENCH DECORATING IDEAS
Benches come in different shapes, sizes and are even made of different materials.
Knowing how to decorate a bench can be a challenge, but we want to take the guesswork out of the process.
WHERE SHOULD A BENCH BE PLACED IN A HOUSE?
Let's start with where should a bench be placed in a house. Because until you know the where, you don't know the how.
It is very popular to have a bench in your entry way. The perfect place to put on or take off your shoes before heading out or when coming home.
In a mudroom, under a window or in a living room for extra seating are other great options for a bench.
