Bench Height: This is probably the most important aspect for the piano player. Correct height allows for correct posture and proper finger placement. A standard size bench is typically 19 high. Because people vary in size, adjustable piano benches are available with the turn of the wrist. And now, even the push of a button, with an electric adjustable piano bench! Adjustable benches adjust in height from about 17 ½ up to 21. This allows for those who prefer the bench height slightly lower or slightly higher than the standard 19 height found on most non-adjustable benches.
The most popular, elegant and well known pianos in the world are made by Steinway & Sons, who have a tradition of making their top-of-the-line instruments for over 150 years. Steinway however, is solely a piano bench manufacturer, and do not make their own piano benches to go along with their pianos. They in fact contract out to Jansen & Son exclusively to make benches for their products. Thus, if you are looking for a Steinway piano bench, you are in fact looking for a Jansen piano bench.
Piano Bench Tops. The most common type of piano bench top is the hardwood bench top. Most have an optional model available with a music storage compartment that is very handy for sheet music or other music accessories (my kids will hide things in our bench all the time). Fancier and more expensive seat tops will be upholstered in fabric or even leather. Most bench manufacturers have lots of fabric choices to select from and they can be made to match your interior décor without issue. Vinyl is a nice substitute for real leather if budget is a concern. I personally like the fabric seat over a leather or vinyl seat top because of the capability of the fabric to breathe.
