There are three essential aspects, you need to focus on which are Stability, Quality, and Functionality. Look for a bench with adjustable height. The right posture is crucial for the feet' stability and control of the pedals. Grand piano benches with spindle mechanics have the legs fixed to its structure and are easily adjustable. The kitchen, office, or other types of chairs are not appropriate. Firstly, they cannot be adjusted. Secondly, they are not stable enough.
The next aspect is the location of the bench:
It is enough for a household to buy an easy-to-manipulate and comfortable bench because the usage frequency is not as high as in schools or concert halls.
Schools, concert halls, and other institution
A stable and easily positioned bench should be required for the institution because it will be used daily. Therefore, it is better to avoid screw benches.
For concert halls, schools, and other institutions it is better to choose a massive design.
The last aspect is to specify the details for the bench to match your instrument. There is a wide range of piano colors you can choose from. However, to pick the shade your piano has, can be challenging, especially if you have a lighter piano color. For sure, you can choose an all-purpose black color in both matte and gloss finish. We produce unique benches matching our special collections, for example, Rococo, Chippendale, Stingray, and others.
Bench seats are available in various colors. When choosing a bench, please, take into consideration the maintenance of the seat. Even though brighter colors matching the piano might seem like a great choice, but they show visible abrasion and smudges. That is why we recommend darker seat colors.
With rotary benches, you can choose the material used for the seat. Leatherette seats are resilient and durable, although, they may not be as comfortable during the summer months as velvet surface. On the other hand, velvet seats are easily damaged and scratched.
