High End Benches & Stools

Got more friends than you have seats in your home? We at Room Tonic always say, “the more the merrier”. That's where stylish extra stools and benches come in handy. There are so many uses for benches and stools. For example, a bench in the hallway or the end of the bed is a perfect spot for dropping thigs off or for sitting to get ready. A stool can go wherever you need it. With extra stools you can quickly add more seats around a table, use one next to the bed, in the bathroom the list goes on.

What is a stool?

A stool is one of the earliest forms of seat furniture. It bears many similarities to a chair. It consists of a single seat, for one person, without back or armrests (in early stools), on a base of a stool there are either one, two, three or four legs.

 

A stool is a word that encompasses a wide range of chairs. Generally, it is used for any chair without an armrest or back, though the heights of the legs could also make a regular looking dining chair into a 'stool.'

They are mostly seen beside a breakfast bar or perched round kitchen islands; stools can be used anywhere and everywhere round a house. They are generally lighter and allow more freedom of movement. Another great feature is they can be used as stands for plants, to place books on beside a bed, next to a chair with a drink…the possibilities are endless. Always a good investment.

 

 

Is a stool better than a chair?

One of the key reasons that stools are ergonomically superior over chairs is that they encourage the back into a more natural curve. When we sit in a way that allows the spine to be in a natural position, we can alleviate pressure and tension that muscles experience when sitting in an awkward position.

Benches

The perfect bench adds versatile seating and savvy style to any space. They’re innately practical, and available in designs to suit decors of any fashion. Highly decorated traditional spaces or sleek minimalist modern rooms are made complete with the addition of a bench featuring just the right touches.

 

How do I choose a bench?

Measure the length of the area where you'd like to place your bench. Most benches will fit easily at the foot of a full, queen or king size bed. For dining benches, make sure that the entire bench will fit between the legs of your dining table so you can push the bench in when not in use.

 

How will I use my bench?

Though a bench provides myriad possibilities when it comes to usage, your home’s specific needs may differ from another’s. Benches are perfect for additional seating and extra storage. Whether you would like more space indoors or outside there are benches for both spaces. Warm your home with extra seating and storage. Natural environments rich with flora become richer when outfitted with garden-ready benches, ample enough to accommodate all your friends and family.

 

How to Measure Your Space for a Bench

Measure the length of the area where you'd like to place your bench. Most benches will fit easily at the foot of a full, queen or king size bed. For dining benches, make sure that the entire bench will fit between the legs of your dining table so you can push the bench in when not in use. If you plan to keep your bench against a wall, bear in mind you'll need clearance to walk about 18 inches away from the wall to account for the bench's width.
