Do You Have a Bench at the Foot of Your Bed?

I've always loved the look of a bench set at the foot of a bed. Not only is it a convenient place to sit and tie your shoes Mr. Rogers-style, but it's another place to add a bit of color and pattern if you choose an upholstered bench. They're also great if you have a small bedroom, because you can have seating without an entire designated sitting area. Do you have one?

Yes. I don't have a foot board so it makes the bed look more "finished".

If my king size bed and two dog beds (each 3'x4') didn't take up so much room, I'd have one. I love the idea!

i have a cedar chest. its a beautiful way to add storage and seating at the same time. plus, the cedar keeps sweaters and things nice from unwanted bugs.

Not currently, but I have in the past. It just wouldn't work in this room.

Yes, we have one with storage from Ikea. It's the perfect place to put the comforter during summer, and also store some off-season clothes. And when the next morning is going to be an early one, it's a good spot to lay out clothes the night before.

Definitely not one for me. My condo is so small that the only thing that fits at the end of the bed is the wall!

Definitely - a great place to stash throws, etc. that you may not need all year long.

No, I don't have one. In our small bedroom with a king sized bed, if we had a bench, we'd pretty much be 2 ft away from the bathroom door.
