When You Know Better You Do Better

Where should I put my entryway bench?

A foyer, hallway, or entryway are all perfect places to add a modern bench. It’s an awesome way to add style and sophistication to any blank area.
Even if the space is rarely used it will put a smile on your face every time you walk by. Remember we’re all responsible for our own happiness so decorate this area for yourself!

What is the height of an entryway bench?

The height of the average entryway bench is 18″-20″. Some of the benches in this round-up are as low as 15.5″ which is perfectly fine UNLESS you have bad knees.
In which case, I would go for the higher bench size since it’ll be better on those joints. That also goes for those with elderly family members who visit on a regular and like to sit down before they walk out the door.

I hope these entryway bench resources brought you value and inspire you to design a modern home you love!
