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.
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.
If you are looking for indoor wood benches for smaller rooms like a bathroom, then the best kind of bench to go for is a simple one. These particular indoor wood benches would need to be made using a durable material so that they dont rot from the water or the heat. Indoor wood benches that for a seating area all have beautiful features like ornate arms and maybe a back on it for the added comfort. Some of these benches will look a lot more stylish than just your plain wood bench as it will more than likely have an upholstered or leather seat. It will all depend on how you wish to use your indoor wood benches as to whether or not you prefer ones that are backless or that have backs to them as well if they have arms or not.
Wood Finishes. Piano bench manufacturers offer a wood finish to match any finish provided by the piano manufacturer. It is very easy to get an exact match as long as you review the choices you are offered. When choosing a bench to match a mahogany piano you will need to bear in mind that there might be four shades of mahogany available from the bench manufacturer and you should select accordingly. Most bench manufacturers will offer a dark mahogany, medium mahogany (also called cherry), a brown mahogany, and a Steinway mahogany (they are popular enough and just a slight shade different that they have a shade named after the piano). Most finishes will come in a high gloss offering as well, though it will likely cost a little more money to get it. If your piano is a high gloss piano, such as a grand piano likely has, you should match it.
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.
