Patio Perfect: A Quick Guide to Outdoor Benches

It's oh so easy to enjoy your outdoor living space when you've got the perfect seat for it. Here are some quick tips to consider when shopping for an outdoor bench.

Material Matters
More than anything else, dining bench style is defined by material, and with so many to choose from, the possibilities really are endless.

  • Wooden outdoor benches remain a perennial favorite, most especially for their sweet simplicity.
  • Resin wicker offers the classic look of wicker in a durable, often weather-proof construction.
  • If you're seeking a natural look that blends with your garden or yard's natural elements, consider either cast concrete or stone.

Weathering the Weather
Rain, sun, fog, frost - whatever's in the forecast, it can do a number on your outdoor bench. When shopping for your bench, keep an eye out for stainless steel or aluminum with powder coating, which prevents rusting. Fade-resistant and UV-treated designs are also smart choices, especially in the case of plastics.

Also, be sure to consider the quality of the ground where you place your bench.

  • A deck, patio, or other hard surface is an ideal area for an outdoor bench.
  • You can also use paving stones to create a dry, level spot for your bench.
  • Even a well-tamped gravel bed can provide the surface and support your bench needs.

Décor Details
When creating an inviting outdoor space, you'll definitely want to think beyond the bench alone – details matter, too. Outdoor pillows (don't forget to check for weather-resistant fabrics) create a pop of color and are easy to switch up with the changing of the seasons.

Consider sound and scent, too. An outdoor fountain or pond instantly soothes, and nearby fragrant flowers, whether in a bed or potted, can make your space smell as sweet as it is.

A Match Made in Heaven?
You're probably wondering if your outdoor bench needs to match your other patio furniture. In short, it's totally your choice. Matching finishes, styles, and design elements can create a unified look that's easy to love, especially with contemporary patio furniture.

On the other hand, mixing and matching styles can create an awesomely eclectic look for your outdoor space. Plus, if you live in a climate with cold, dreary winters, an outdoor bench in a bright, colorful finish can brighten your whole backyard – not to mention your whole day.
