Maximize Your Shower Space With a Teak Bench

Does your shower feel cramped with little-to-no available room for all your toiletries? Unfortunately, it's hard to fully enjoy the soothing and relaxing sensation of a hot shower when you're cramped into a small space. The good news, however, is that you can increase the amount of storage space in your shower by adding an authentic teak bench.

There are several key benefits to using a teak shower bench, only one of which is the storage it provides. Once it's set up, you can use your new teak bench to store a bathing loofah, sponge, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, shaving cream, razors or any other item you commonly use in the shower. Depending on the type of bench you choose, you may also be able to sit down on it while taking a shower.

Of course, some people might be fearful of damaging their teak bench by placing it inside the shower. After all, most authentic hardwood furniture pieces will damage rather quickly from exposure to the constant battering of water. Thankfully, authentic teak wood contains natural oils which act as a preservative against rotting. Even without any additional finish or protective coating, the natural oils within teak oil protect it against water damage; therefore, you can safely place a teak bench inside your shower without worrying about it becoming damaged.

A teak bench is an otherwise simple furnishing that will play a huge role in creating a more comfortable and enjoying showering experience. As previously stated, you can use it to place all of your bathroom toiletries on rather than trying to balance them on open nooks and crannies. In addition to its functional benefits, a teak bench will also help to create a more attractive atmosphere in your bathroom. There's no denying the fact that pieces of authentic teak furniture are incredibly stylish and easy on the eyes. Their subtle mahogany color combines with a superior level of craftsmanship and detail results in a truly beautiful furnishing that's sure to compliment your bathroom.

If you plan on purchasing a teak shower bench, there are a few key features you should look for. First and foremost, stick with benches made from authentic teak wood. Other companies and manufacturers may try to save money by selling 'faux' teak benches, but unfortunately these won't last under the wet atmosphere of a shower. The size and shape is another feature you should consider when shopping for a new shower bench. Some people prefer to caddy corner their bench to maximize space, while others simply place it up against the shower wall.
