Give Your Bathroom A New Look with a Teak Shower Bench


If you are in the process of remodeling your bathroom, you may want to consider adding a shower bench for your shower, especially when there is an elderly person living in your home. There are various types of shower benches that you can install in your shower. You can opt for a portable shower bench such as a teak shower bench or you can have one built in as a stationary bench. Whatever you choose, make sure it is made of teak wood.

Making Choices
A teak shower bench will spruce up your bathroom and provide comfortable and warm seating while you are in the shower compared to a plastic or tile shower bench, which would both be cold to sit on, especially when it gets wet. In addition, you have quite a number of choices when it comes to teak shower benches since there are a wide range of choices. To make your choice, here are some different types of shower benches to look at below.

Square and Rectangular Shapes
A shower bench that has a square or rectangular shape is ideal if you want to place it against the wall or in the corner of your shower. You can also find some models with built-in shelves under the curved or straight seat.

Triangular Shaped Bench or Corner Stool
The triangular shaped shower bench is also an option as well as the corner stool. These are ideal if your shower is small. It should easily fit in the corner of the shower. If you want to save on space or want to maintain a compact area, then both the corner stool and triangular shaped shower bench are good choices.

Folded Teak Shower Bench
To save on even more space in your shower, try the folded teak shower bench. After taking your shower, it can be folded up and kept to the side until you are ready to use it again.

Adjustable Features
There are also teak shower benches with adjustable legs. While the seated portion of the bench is made of teak wood, the legs are generally made of aluminum or stainless steel. The reason for the wood and metal combination is to accommodate the height adjustment of the bench. These are especially good for the elderly and people who are physically challenged and need more height in the shower.

Conclusion

If you don’t have a walk-in shower, but a bath tub, then you could try the teak bench for the tub. It comes without legs and before purchasing, you must know the width of your bath tub since the leg-less bench will be placed across the bath tub. To complete your bathroom remodel, try to find teak shower accessories, adding them to improve your bathroom décor.
