Types of Outdoor Benches

Not all outdoor bench furniture is made the same. In fact, there are a number of different outdoor seating benches to choose from. Selecting the right one for you involves an understanding of the functionality you're seeking and considerations of your personal style. 

Here are a few outdoor bench options from Bassett to consider: 

Outdoor Dining Bench

Having a great meal outdoors is one of life's more enjoyable pleasures. And, it's even better when you have your favorite people to enjoy it with. An outdoor dining bench or two create plenty of space for your family and friends to gather around your outdoor dining table. 

Garden Bench 

If you have a green thumb and like to put it to good use, a garden bench is less of an accessory and more of a necessity. Gardening is hard work. A comfy place to sit and rest in between your planting, weeding and pruning is just a smart investment. It's also a great spot from which to enjoy your handiwork. 

Outdoor Backless Bench

Garden benches typically come equipped with a nice strong back. That support is much appreciated when you come over for a rest. But not every outdoor bench requires one. Whether you value maneuverability or prefer a more sleek design, a backless outdoor bench just might be more your speed.  

What Materials Is Outdoor Bench Furniture Made From? 

There is no one, best material for an outdoor bench. The right one for you depends on your personal taste and preference. And, at Bassett, we're happy to provide several different options. 


Wood benches don't absorb nearly as much heat as their metal counterparts. That makes them ideal for sitting out on a warm, sunny day. Wood also offers a more natural style and durability. That said, wood benches can show a patina (a thin film caused by exposure to air) over time if sealants aren't applied – which may, in fact, be a desired look.


Metal bench construction provides maximum sturdiness and the ability to withstand the more severe weather conditions. However, metal does absorb and hold heat more than wood. On those hot, summer days, that can create some discomfort if you don't remember to use a bench covering. 


Wicker benches have a bit more give to them compared with wood or metal surfaces, which makes for a more comfortable seating experience.
