Buying Guide

A Deacon bench makes an interesting entryway or mudroom seat where you can sit down and take off your shoes. You can use the space under the bench to store your seasonal footwear or muddy shoes that may ruin your floor. Some designs even come with hooks to hang your coats, bags, and other accessories.

In addition, this versatile furniture piece can be placed anywhere in your home for extra seating, storage, and decor. You can turn your deacon bench into a kitchen booth to create a cozy setting for eating breakfast or place it out on your patio for quiet reflection and reading. If your deacon bench comes with a lift seat, you can organize your space by storing your sofa blankets, your children’s toys, and other miscellaneous items in the storage compartment. Don’t forget to add throw pillows on the bench to create an inviting and aesthetically pleasing focal point in your home.

The color you choose to paint your Deacon bench will depend on where you're planning on placing it. If you plan to keep it in your garden or patio area, we recommend you go with neutral colors like white, black, and grey. These colors will compliment any outdoor color scheme.

If you plan to place it inside the home, perhaps in the entryway, consider matching it to your interior decor theme.

While some people agree that giving a Deacon bench a bright pop of color will make it stand out, others simply prefer to make it blend in with the existing color scheme, and both these suggestions work equally well based on your personal taste and the look you are trying to achieve.
