Storage benches may initially seem boring, but there is so much you can do with a storage bench to elevate your interior design! While reaping the aesthetic benefits, you are simultaneously decluttering your living space and offering an easy way for your family to get involved in tidying the house!
This article will take you through the best ideas for decorating your storage benches to provide a seamless design that serves a functional purpose while adding a sophisticated aesthetic to your home.
Of course, the first step of this process is to find a storage bench that fits in with the style of your house. For example, you could opt for deeper color schemes to add intensity and variation to your space or choose lighter boho styles to keep a relaxed and simple style in your house.
Once you have selected a storage bench that suits your style, you can start getting creative and considering ways to make your storage bench feel more special than a means of storing items. Here are some of our top recommendations for this;
Often, when we think of storage benches, our minds immediately jump to keeping them in a hallway or veranda, but bedrooms can be a great area to put a storage bench. After all, many of us have wardrobes and drawers overflowing with items!
Storage benches can be used as a bay, most of which are built to hold human weight. Therefore, adding a storage bench that is comfy enough to sit on is an excellent way of incorporating a seat in your bedroom as well as a means of storing items; versatility is key.

You could always go down the more obvious choice of displaying your storage bench in the hallway and making it apparent that it is a way of storing items.

Filling up your hall with a storage bench is an excellent way of filling space and making even the barest areas of your house have personality and depth.
We recommend still embellishing the comforting and homely feeling of the bench function by draping a blanket over the storage unit; the perfect way to ensure your guests have a seat when an impromptu hallway chat sparks!
Another way you can add a touch of versatility to your living area with a storage bench is by selecting a smaller box that can be used as a footrest.
