A garden bench seat makes a wonderful addition to any outdoor space, giving you somewhere to sit and unwind whilst enjoying all that your garden has to offer. Dunelm has a great selection of outdoor benches available in a range of shapes, sizes and materials to match your style. Which one should you opt for though? We’ve got some top tips below.
Wooden Garden Benches A wooden garden bench is a traditional choice. Usually, such garden benches have been pressure-treated to help repel the elements - something we certainly know a thing or two about here in the UK! When the sun does come out, however, an outdoor seat pad or cushion can help make your wooden garden bench feel much cosier! In fact, these added comforts can make your garden bench ideal for having a natter over a cuppa with friends. For a garden bench with a touch of rustic charm, have a look at our sleeper benches which come in different sizes and are made from solid wood.
Metal Garden Benches
Metal garden benches are generally a little less demanding in terms of maintenance. At Dunelm, we sell metal garden benches in various shapes, sizes and patterns, including those made out of solid steel for durability. Looking for a classic design? Explore our range of cast iron garden benches. What’s more, our unique metal tree benches which allow you to sit comfortably under the shade of your favourite tree.
Stone Garden Bench A stone garden bench can be a delightful and charming addition to your garden and generally tends to last longer than other bench materials. Better yet, if your outside space already boasts stone ornaments, trinkets and decorations, it can create a cohesive feel to your garden.
An alternative to stone would be a concrete garden bench. Just as hard wearing, stylish, and able to be painted almost any colour you want, a modern garden bench like this would be the perfect addition to a contemporary or minimalist style.
Garden Bench Styles
We don’t just stock regular benches, we offer plenty of different styles to suit your garden. Our corner garden benches, or our curved garden benches are great for making the most of the available space… great for small yards or gardens. Likewise, we also offer storage garden benches to maximise space further. Whether for keeping the cushions away from the weather, or an ideal place to keep a cooler out of the sun, a storage garden bench is the ideal addition to your outdoor space.
