The rustic style is big right now, and it’s no wonder. Natural materials and colors in cream, brown, grey, green, and blue create a cozy, welcoming vibe. Creating this look in a bedroom is easier than most think, and a great way to add to it is with a storage bench.
When looking for a rustic storage bench, though, what should you aim for? A stone bench doesn’t really fit your idea of comfort, and a rough wood bench gives you visions of splinters. Don’t worry, that’s not really our idea of comfort and style either. Look more for natural fibers in an upholstered bench that showcase hues found in nature, such as brown or cream or green or a solid wood frame.
Finding a few different options to choose from is an easy task as well. Amazon has more than a few offerings, and we’ve picked 17 of our favorites. Keep reading to get some design inspiration for a great storage bench!
