When traveling and sleeping in hotels, we have probably come across a very interesting solution in the bedroom many times. It was a special bench, standing by the bed in the bedroom. Usually without any backrest and placed just in front of the bed. It is usually made of the same material as the bed frame and is additionally upholstered from above.

Bench in front of the bed - where did the idea come from?

Interestingly, if we go to a museum or an open-air museum, we can see similar benches there, which were very popular years ago. The bench in front of the bed used to be a kind of extension. This was due to the superstitions they professed. Well, many people had fears of ... death! Yes, once the beds were too short, because it was believed that lying down comfortably and horizontally to sleep was a kind of invitation to meet the Grim Reaper...

It was also used to put on shoes. More and more people use this model also in the bedroom. We can dress on it, but also arrange clothes.


Bench in the bedroom - how to choose?

It draws attention to itself and will probably be in the center of the bedroom upon entering the bedroom. Therefore, it should not disturb the proportions and space in any way. The bench in front of the bed should not be higher or wider than it, and for functional reasons, it should not protrude beyond the bed frame.

Finally, we should match the bench to the arrangement of the entire bedroom. The seat should be an integral part of the room. Remember that both the bench matters, but also what we intend to put on it. A fluffy blanket or pillows matched to the curtains - all this can affect the final reception.
