Melissa Newman. Benches. January 08th , 2018.
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.
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.
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.
Outdoor wood benches vary in size, they could be small two seat benches, and go much larger. Then there are also benches that wrap around the tree, so that you dont have to keep moving your chairs about and packing them away when you are done using them. The wood that is used varies from oak, shorea wood, white cedar, pine, or maple depending on the texture you are seeking. There is also the rustic look for outdoor wood benches. This look consists of the railings being made from white cedar or other choice woods. This look is very attractive in any garden setting. Shapes and sizes are very important, you do not want to over power the garden with too much wood, so try to go with outdoor wood benches that fit your style and motif of your garden.
During winter months there is no place better for the storage of scarves, mittens, or gloves. Small foyer benches can certainly work for many purposes. At home or at work, the corner bench can do a lot to take up a minimum of space while offering a place to store items that would otherwise be hanging around all over the place. Corner stations are sturdy units that can be made of steel for the workplace and wood for the home. The numbers of shelves are optional and should be added based on the amount of use the corner bench will be getting. These indoor small benches offer the businessman and the home resident alike the satisfaction of knowing exactly where an item can be found.
