Deck bench ideas

Chairs, tables and benches are common deck and patio accessories, and many options for deck seating exist. Bench seating, to accommodate more than four or five people, is just one option that might be considered for large decks, for instance. Whether building deck seating along with the deck or adding it later on, including deck benches for comfortable summer relaxation is a must.

Built-In

Built-in benches that use the deck railing for the seat backs make attractive, comfortable seats. Build two or three benches along several railings or build one long, continuous stretch of deck bench along all four railings of the deck. For a different and interesting set of benches, build corner benches.

Double-Duty

Deck bench boxes do double-duty, providing seating and storage. Roomy, hinged-lid boxes with seat cushions add extra seating and storage space to the deck. Group three or four together along one railing of the deck, or put two each at opposite railings. Store hoses, patio dishes and utensils and gardening tools in deck bench boxes.

Recycled

If you or a neighbour have a tree removed, don't let the tree service haul away all the logs. Save the largest pieces cut from the tree base to use as bases for deck benches. Nail or screw two or three planks of wood in between two tree stumps for an easy, cheap do-it-yourself deck bench.

Cement

Cement is a durable bench material. Pour cement into utility buckets, sprayed with cement release, for two base pieces, make a frame from lumber and pour cement to make a slab. You now have a ready-to-assemble deck bench. For slimmer legs, make frames from lumber to fill with cement. For a more finished look, cut the wood on the inside of the frames with a jigsaw for rounded edges for the bench slab.

Last-Minute

If you need extra deck seating at the last minute, a couple of overturned utility buckets and wood planks or old closet doors will work. If you don't have utility buckets, folding chairs will hold planks for benches also, as will two or three good-sized logs.

Salvaged

If you like garage sales, estate sales and salvage yards, or eBay, you can find some interesting deck bench items. Garage sales may yield old deck bench boxes. Look for old park and public benches at salvage yards and auctions. Sometimes, just the bench ends may be left and new planks can be attached.
