Materials used in manufacturing vanity benches are numerous and variable. Most benches include upholstered seats as well as some sort of tapestry. Wood continues to be a popular material in crafting vanity benches, but it is slowly being replaced by sleek metallic finish. When wood is used, vanity benches are also protected from rot because of the naturally repellant properties of wood. However metallic vanity benches are also quite popular. One of the frequently used metals is wrought iron. Vanity benches made using wrought iron also have the luxury of allowing various metallic finishes to be applied. Gold finish is preferred in many situations. Other types of finish include pewter finish, which imparts an ebony type of look to your vanity bench.
If your residence does not have an entryway closet, it can easily become a mess of coats and hats all piled one on top of the other. Having someplace to put these items can be resolved by using a hall tree bench. An excellent small entryway bench, these benches come in different sizes and have a seat to make it easy to remove shoes or boots. They have decorative backs and the entire look of these units is one of a great piece of furniture. If the foyer should be too small to small for placement of a hall tree bench, the fashionable design of these units will see them looking at home in the living room or family room. If you happen to be lucky enough to have a mudroom, there is no better place for the hall tree benches.
For wood benches, look for one that comes in very few pieces. Try to get a feel for the joints although judging joints on a wood piece is a bit more difficult because it can be hard to see the quality construction. Try sitting on the bench and moving around a little bit. If the bench does not wiggle or creak, then there is a good chance that it is of high quality. For upholstered bench tops, look at how the cushion is attached to the bench. A cushion that is loose or looks like it is about to come loose will not do. The best choice is a cushion that is attached to the top of the bench and cannot be removed. Cushions that are attached with ties are usually not a good choice for a vanity bench. Also remember to look for cushions made of a material that is easy to wipe off and clean.
As with all types of furniture, quality is always extremely important. There is nothing worse than relaxing to put on makeup and then falling to the floor because the bench broke. Having a basic understanding of what makes quality vanity benches can really help with the selection process. Many vanity benches are metal, and one way to judge the quality of the metal is by checking the weight. However, most vanity benches are also very dainty, so it may be difficult to judge the quality of metal by the weight of the bench. Just remember that a very light bench may not offer as good quality as one that is slightly heavier. Also take a look at how the bench is put together. Higher quality benches will have joints that are welded together rather than screwed or bolted. These welds will also be located in very inconspicuous places if the bench is well made.
