Narrow Benches

Wide benches don't fit everywhere you might need a bench. Narrow benches solve that problem. Pick the length, pick the style, then choose a wood construction, and you have yourself the perfect narrow bench to suit your needs. Buy one that fits your other furniture so it blends with the surroundings, as if it was always part of the interior design scheme.

Our advice Buying Guide

Narrow benches can be great pieces of furniture to add to your home, and you don't need to limit them to just one area of the house. You can have benches in any room inside your home or outside in the garden, and there are a variety of styles to choose from too.

What are the pros and cons of different materials used in constructing benches?

The type of material that the narrow bench is made from will depend on where you intend to put it. Materials such as wood can look great outside, but if it's likely to rain a lot, you should consider a sturdier material. Iron or steel might not look very appealing to you, and metals will rust easily in bad weather. Ensure that any wooden benches have been varnished properly beforehand, and if you choose a harder and more durable material, add character and color by using cushions and throws.

How to use narrow benches for extra storage?

Narrow benches made a great addition to your home when placed in the hallway. This allows you or guests to your home the space to put any items along with coats, shoes and bags. It's also a great place to perch while you take your shoes on and off!

Another way you can make your bench into a useful storage solution is to install shelves underneath the bench. You can store books, shoes, plants and ornaments on the shelves, and you will still have the entire length of the bench for anything else.

How to make sure the bench is suitable for the whole family?

If you have a family and there are young children living in your home, you should ensure that any furniture you buy is suitable. This includes checking that the items comply with rules around fire resistance, particularly if you are buying from an individual trader. You should also request for any sharp edges to be softened or rounded so that injuries are minimized, should your child accidentally trip or collide with it.

How to style with narrow benches?

Narrow benches can look very stylish when used in a vintage setting within the home. They look particularly good if you are going with a 'farmhouse' style – a wooden bench will make an attractive addition. If you don't like the full vintage look but you want a bit of a throwback, you can paint a wooden bench a bright color and make it into a more 'retro' bench. As long as you buy a bench in a material that is versatile, you can switch it up and change the colors and themes whenever you like.

Bonus tip: A great idea when buying benches is to look into the handmade items which are available from many individual tradesmen. Not only can you be proud of supporting a local business, but you're also likely to get quality furniture that is unique to your home and can't be found anywhere else. It also means that you can request for the bench to be customized, whether in terms of sizing, color or shape.
