Handmade wood benches are hot items right now! Not only are they useful for extra seating when needed, but they are also a popular décor item—especially in the entryways of homes. You’ll often see them placed just inside a front door as a place to sit and remove shoes before venturing into the rest of the house. In some homes, however, we’ve noticed that their wood benches are used more as décor pieces than as functional furniture. Homeowners will place decorative pillows, plants, or other decorative items on top of their benches to add some interest to their entryway areas.
For those who use their benches as functional furniture, they will often place baskets underneath the sitting area to store shoes or purses. This helps to keep the area from looking messy. However, when you go with a custom wood bench, you can opt to have the storage built in. We could design a wood bench that includes cubbies, a low shelf, or even drawers under the seating area to house whatever items you want to keep handy, but still out of the way.
If you’ve been looking in stores or online for the perfect wood bench for sale and haven’t been able to find something that suits your needs or style, you might want to consider hiring a local woodworking company to design and build one for you. At Three Pines Wood Co., we supply custom items like wood benches to the areas of San Diego, Ramona, and Poway. Our prices for custom furniture pieces are often comparable to mid- to high-end retail stores.
One of the biggest advantages of having a custom wood bench built is that you can choose the exact size and style that will suit your space. Maybe you have a large space to fill. We can build you an oversized bench that looks proportional to the space. Only have a small area? We can build the perfect small custom bench that will fit perfectly into the space you have. We can also design a bench for you in any style and in any type of wood. We could build you a bench that looks like an old-fashioned church pew or one that is more sleek and modern. Do you want your custom wood bench to match other pieces of furniture in your house? We can do that too!
There are so many options when it comes to a custom wood bench. If you need additional storage, consider having a bench designed into more of a hall tree style. A hall tree often includes storage above the bench, as well as some hooks for things like coats, purses, and backpacks.
