The entryway bench is very popular in modern homes. It is often used as a place to take a seat while waiting for someone else to exit the house, or to sit while removing or putting on shoes at the door. The entry bench can however be used for other purposes. Depending on the design, the benches for entryway can be used as storage for anything from umbrellas to shoes.
If the entry bench is used for storage, ensure that it is always kept in tip top shape! As the first thing your guests see on arrival, you cannot afford for them to walk into your home and be greeted by a messy entryway bench. The entryway bench should be clean and dust free at all times. If your bench is made from wood, be sure to use furniture polish to keep it sparkling. If cushions are used, ensure that the cushions are always fluffed and cleaned regularly. Unsightly stains on cushions at the front door is no way to greet a guest.
To accentuate your entryway furniture, place a grande mirror and fresh flowers somewhere along that entry area. A stunning piece of artwork on the wall opposite the bench will give your guests something to look at while they wait to be escorted inside or to leave the house.
