Storage Bench Plans - DIY Storage Bench Seats

A storage bench is perfect for a hallway, porch or foyer. It not only provides seating for removing boots or shoes, it adds storage for gear, and sports equipment. Free storage bench plans are simple and are great do-it-yourself projects.

Storage benches can be customized to fit your space. They are freestanding or built-in, depending on your needs.

Dress them up with stain and varnish, or choose durable enamel paint for a colorful accent to welcome guests.

Storage bench plans have hinged lids for easy access, while simple cushions may be added for comfort and a decorator touch. Storage benches are welcome seating for a deck or patio, while adding a convenient place for storing backyard games and tools. For outdoor use, choose teak or redwood and resilient water-based stain for long-lasting durability.
