Reclaimed Wood Bench with Back for Sunroom

Alcott Hill®

Description

A bench crafted from reclaimed wood is the perfect piece of furniture for the environmentally-conscious homeowner. Besides reducing your environmental impact, furniture made from reclaimed wood can add a unique touch to your interior design scheme. Since the wood is not brand new, it’s likely to have developed intriguing color tones or signs of distress that add character.

These benches make great additions to a sunroom, but you must be careful the wood doesn’t warp from overexposure to the sun. For best results, place your reclaimed wood bench against a wall adjacent to the sunroom window, rather than directly opposite, to minimize the direct sun exposure.
