Everybody likes furniture that is multipurpose! For any area of the house, storage benches are useful. To keep extra linens, put one at the end of your bed. Or, build a cozy spot at the entrance to take off your shoes while enjoying the additional room to conceal off-season coats and accessories.
In a great bench with storage for gardening supplies and more, you might even invest. In children's bedrooms, these items can act as toy boxes, replace coffee tables in the living room, or provide guest seating in the media room.
