Thursday’s Theme: Cubby Storage Benches

Thursday, April 18th, 2019

Today’s post is dedicated to the storage bench. But not just any storage bench: the cubby storage bench. The stylish furniture piece that also brings plenty of – you guessed it, storage space – to a room. It’s both a seat and a way to keep your belongings neat and tidy; a way to complement your stylish home without sacrificing organization. But you probably knew this already, so let’s talk specifics when it comes to choosing the right cubby storage bench for you and your home.

You have the option to use the baskets in the bench, or leave the cubbies open if you prefer and use the baskets elsewhere. A bench with a raised or high back also invites people to sit down to put their shoes on or take off hats and mittens.

If you prefer the open storage technique than this type of cubby bench is for you. It’s always important to consider how you are going to use the space, whether that means voting against baskets, voting for them, decreasing the size of the bench, or opting for more cubbies. Will this bench be in a high-traffic area, like an entryway? Maybe an extra cubby would come in handy. Or if you want to allow more space for boot trays or just need a little extra storage outside of a closet, consider that maybe one or two cubbies will do the trick.

Store garden tools in a mudroom, accessories in an entryway, or use in a child’s bedroom for toys and coloring utensils. Benches that are raised above the floor offer the potential to store items underneath, or at least tuck them away temporarily. Again, it’s all about identifying your storage needs and matching those up with the right cubby bench.

If you’re going for a primitive look, choose a bench with a more rough finish, or naturally distressed features. For a more modern or contemporary space, a smooth finish will be your best bet. Often a cubby storage bench will allow for a bench cushion to sit on top, so adding one will heighten the comfort and personal style of the bench.
