Piano Bench Tops. The most common type of piano bench top is the hardwood bench top. Most have an optional model available with a music storage compartment that is very handy for sheet music or other music accessories (my kids will hide things in our bench all the time). Fancier and more expensive seat tops will be upholstered in fabric or even leather. Most bench manufacturers have lots of fabric choices to select from and they can be made to match your interior décor without issue. Vinyl is a nice substitute for real leather if budget is a concern. I personally like the fabric seat over a leather or vinyl seat top because of the capability of the fabric to breathe.
Okay, using chalk might have seemed odd at first, and I am sure that foam rolling your legs seems even more out of place right now, but trust me, it works. This step towards a bigger bench should not be limited to just your lower body, you really should foam roll your upper body as well. There are a few reasons for this. First, foam rolling relieves tension built up in your body. When you bench press (and lift heavy in general) you want to get the most out of your muscles, you want everything working in sync and at their maximum, this goes for your legs as well as your upper body. By foam rolling your IT band, inner quad sweep, glutes, and calves you are preparing yourself for maximum effort from your leg drive. By loosening and releasing tension and stress in your lower body you are allowing yourself the ability to use your leg drive as effectively as possible.
The constant movement and scraping against the floor as the bench is pushed in and out leads to excessive nicks, wear and tear on the bench. Proud musicians like their equipment to standout and a scraped piano bench is something that can be easily replaced and made to look like new again. Several options to consider when purchasing a new piano bench are listed below.Leg Style. I can tell right away when the bench is a replacement bench and not the bench that originally came with the piano by the fact that most people have a bench that does not have legs to match the leg style of the piano. I may be a little bit of a stickler about this but you should be able to find a bench to match and you should make the effort to find one since it will be a part of your home for decades. Most benches are available with classic straight legs, spade legs, and sometimes antique types of legs such as Louis XIV are available.
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.
Vanity benches add a great deal of charm as well as elegance to your personal vanity. Usually set in a bedroom unless there is a separate dressing room, these vanity benches have the ability to make every make-up session seem special. If you have a dressing table vanity then it makes ample sense to own a vanity bench. Vanity benches serve dual function in that they allow you to leisurely complete what is an important part of your day especially if you are a working woman. Not only do vanity benches complement other personal vanities, they also provide an unhurried setting where you can complete your personal tasks quickly and efficiently.
