First impressions are important. When your guests enter your home, they should be pleasantly welcomed. Setting a bench by your front door achieves this by inviting them to have a seat to remove their shoes. Besides the obvious additional seating they offer, entryway benches can be much more practical than they seem. A bench with storage features can neatly stow outerwear in the offseason, hide umbrellas on those sunny days or even organize dog walking accessories conveniently by the door. A bench with a coat rack, can not only stow your shoes but also provides additional options like hooks for coats, hats, purses, and dog leashes.
When shopping for the right entryway bench you mainly want to consider the size of the bench, which depends on two things.
- First, how much space to you have accessible for a bench? Is a bench going to fit in your entryway or mudroom? You want to make sure placing a bench in this area isn't going to look cluttered or create an obstacle for passing through.
- Also, if used for seating purposes, how many adults does it need to accommodate at once? As a general rule of thumb and bench around 42-52" wide can seat 2 adults comfortably, 53-61" wide for 3 adults.
