11 of the Best Outdoor Black Benches Under $300

Are you looking for a new outdoor bench? Well, look no further! I’ve rounded up 11 of the best outdoor black benches for under $300.

I recently gave my front porch a much-needed update. The first thing I did was refresh my front door with paint and a few other details.

In the 12 years we’ve lived here we had never repainted our front door.

It was time!

And it turned out so good!

Once the front door had a fresh new look we turned our attention to giving the front porch a little update too.

I usually like symmetry when decorating my front porch.

Two planters.

Two lanterns.

You get the idea.

But we decided to try putting an outdoor bench on one side of the porch…

And guess what we love it!

It’s so fun to have somewhere to sit and watch what’s going on in the neighborhood

Let’s Browse the Best Outdoor Black Benches

Searching for the perfect bench took a bit of research.

We decided we wanted a black outdoor bench and we didn’t want to spend more than $300 so that helped narrow our search down.

Who knew there were so many beautiful black benches under $300!

Metal, Steel, or Cast Iron Benches

Any of these materials are great low maintenance options for your new outdoor bench.

And there are so many pretty different styles.

Do you like the classic look of a park bench style or maybe a traditional bench?

Or what about that cool geometric pattern is more to your liking?

And that pretty lattice pattern black bench is an updated classic choice.

Metal benches may require repainting at some point down the road but don’t worry you’ll get years of use out of it before you will need to do that.

Vintage Metal Bench

Is vintage your jam?

Then this awesome rustic industrial vintage style is one for you!

Isn’t that so cool? It would also be a great bench for your dining area.

But if you want this cool metal bench grab it quick while it’s on sale!

Wood Outdoor Bench

Wood benches may not be as low maintenance as other metal materials but don’t let that stop you.

Not all wood benches are the same so be sure to do a little research before buying.

I just love this gorgeous acadia wood bench!

Acadia wood is a dense & durable wood. It’s also sustainable so you’ll be protecting the earth when you choose this bench.

Plus this acadia wood bench has the added protection of a polyureathane coating over the black paint.

Mix of Wood & Metal Bench

This wood and metal bench was just too pretty to pass up when I was searching. It combines a lattice metal back and curved arms with a wood seat and spindle legs.

Although it’s not intended for outdoor use you could easily add a coat of polyurethane to the bench and if it’s used under a covered porch or outdoor area you should be just fine.

Outdoor Bench with a Table

This black powder coated steel is another durable quality bench.

I decided to give this outdoor bench it’s own category instead of putting it above with the other metal tables because it has a super cool feature!

Look at that awesome pop up middle table!

Isn’t that so cool?

Now you have a place for your cup of coffee in the morning or glass of wine in the evenings.

Gliders and Rockers

What’s better than sitting on your front porch rocking or gliding the day away?

We were hoping to get a rocking bench but unfortunately, we didn’t have enough space on our small front porch.

But wouldn’t one of these just be so fun?

The steel outdoor glider allows you to relax and destress while gently swaying back and forth.

And the traditional wood rocking bench is also made of Acadia wood like the wood bench above.

All-Weather Polywood Bench

If you want a super low maintenance outdoor bench then Polywood is a great option.

Polywood is made from HDPE which stands for high density polyethylene and is durable plastic.

This Trex Yacht Club all-weather Polywood bench was the way to go for us because we definitely wanted low maintenance.

It comes in 2 sizes 48″ and 60″. We bought the smaller size and it fits perfectly on the side of our small porch.

We’re looking forward to enjoying this bench for years to come!
