Upholstered storage bench – Get decor is as elegant as a kitchen counter. Whether it’s just a place at the door to take off wet shoes, simple seating around a farm table, or slick retro look of diner booth benches fit into almost any kitchen design.

Upholstered storage bench are drawers built strong enough to sit on; some use top-mounted lid, while others use boxes or simple cubbyholes in the front. You can set them on the floor, perhaps with molding around the base to give them a bit of style. These boxes can be placed on a small 2-for-2 pedestal, or you can give them small block-shaped legs. Alternatively, if the box is relatively shallow, you can add more legs with a greater variety of forms. Pillows are often placed at the top for comfort. A four-to-five-inch thick cushion will cause your bench to be used much more often than a standard 2-inch pillow.
