Remember, benches don’t have to be straight – use curved shapes to save space.
You can build your benches out of whatever material you want – ensure it works well with you design and style though. Materials you can use are things like wood, synthetics and stone.
Instead of having a table that is always in place, consider investing in a folding one. That way when you don’t have guests you can pop your table in your shed out the way and make more room available to you.
