Organizing your bedroom can feel like a constant push and pull at times, can’t it?

You need to make sure you have enough room for your clothes, while also providing the sort of furniture you’d expect from a bedroom (at least a bed, maybe somewhere to sit down) and it can all start to take up a lot of room!

That’s where bedroom benches come in. Bedroom benches can provide the benefits of comfortable furniture along with some new ways to organize or decorate your bedroom, and in ways you may not have expected.

Check out a few fun uses for bedroom benches below, and see if you get inspired to bring some new seating into your bedroom:

 

Shoe Storage: One of the most obvious benefits of bedroom benches is that it gives you the opportunity to store your shoes somewhere a little more convenient. Many benches come with a shelf underneath to store shoes (or smaller things like purses), and even without an extra shelf these benches are a great way to keep your shoes aside where they can be easily accessed—and out of the way so nobody trips on them).

 

Window Seats: A common decorative touch in homes these days is large bay windows inside a bedroom, and bedroom benches offer a great place to sit down and enjoy the view. Line your longer windows with a bedroom bench for a more aesthetically pleasing place to sit down while you get ready for work or change into your pajamas after a long day. And if you have pets, they’ll love the chance to get a better view of the outdoors.

 

Landing Strip: Whether it’s in the bedroom itself or right outside, a bedroom bench provides a great ‘landing strip’ for things to end up on at the end of the day. Even if nobody sits on it, leave a bedroom bench close at hand to keep things like wallets, watches, or other items you’ll need to remember in the morning.

 

Camouflage: Got an unsightly vent that you want to cover up? Benches are a great way to conceal the less pleasant but still needed parts of a bedroom, like grates or heaters. (Just make sure you’re not causing a fire hazard with your placement!)
