Teak Benches come in many styles and are a great enhancement to outdoor environments such as gardens, porches, patios, entranceways and more.

In choosing your outdoor teak bench, first start with quality raw materials and craftsmanship. You can read more about this at our website, and our other blogs.

Next, choose your style. You have curves, backless benches, gliders and more. Much like choosing your teak chair, the contour of the back and seat are important. If you are comparing brands, you can count the number of slats. More slats should be more comfortable. Less slats may be an indication of a manufacturer cutting corners.

Finally, choose the length. The most popular lengths are 4′ and 5′. A 4′ bench is perfect for two people. A 5′ bench can seat 3 people. Longer lengths are available but may be harder to find.
