Whether you’re looking for seating for a porch, a patio, or a garden, an outdoor bench is a classic piece of furniture. Benches come in a range of styles, with backless, backed, and glider benches being the most popular. Consider where you plan to put your bench, as different styles may work better in different areas. If you go for a bench with cushions, you may want to keep it under a roof to prolong the life of the cushions. Aluminum and natural wood are classic materials that look and feel great, but wicker benches can be cozy and work well in gardens or porches.
