A bathroom shower can incorporate many different accessories, all of which can make your showering experience easier and more enjoyable. One accessory homeowners often ask for is a shower bench. Shower benches serve several purposes, some of which you may have never thought of before.

So, take a seat and let’s look at five reasons to have a shower bench.

1. Storage

Believe it or not, a shower bench can be used for added storage. The rustic shower shown above features a bench that is an extension of the tub decking. The bench flows into the shower and allows the homeowner to keep bathroom supplies underneath the bench.

2. Design

A shower bench like the one shown has a lot going for it, however, it’s most dynamic quality is probably its beautiful design. The shower bench spills outside the shower and gives the accent wall tile a landscape to flow over like a stream. Shower benches can enhance the overall design of your bathroom.

3. Relaxation

Having a spa-like bathroom is a common trend with homeowners. Remodeling a bathroom can give homeowner’s an excellent opportunity to create that spa environment in their house. This large stacked stone shower showcases a bench that exudes a relaxing, spa-like feel. See more photos of this master bathroom.

4. Accessibility

One of the more obvious reasons to have a bench in a shower to give the homeowner the ability to sit down in the shower.  As mentioned earlier, for some this is purely about relaxation, giving their shower more of a spa-like atmosphere. Other’s depend on a shower bench for mobility’s sake. A person suffering from an injury can use the shower without having to stand, someone who is in a wheelchair can use the bench to transition from their wheelchair into the shower safely, making the bench an important accessible design feature. Fold up shower benches are an effortless way to have the perks of a bench without having to remodel. Most fold up benches can be installed into an existing shower.

5. Convenience

Women can use the shower bench to help with shaving their legs. A bench is also added space for storage for soap and shampoo bottles and other miscellaneous shower items. See the home office this bath is part of.

Whatever the reason may be, a shower bench can enhance the look and functionality of a shower. To discuss a shower remodeling project for your home, contact Mosby Building Arts today. To schedule a consultation with a home consultant, call 314-909-1800, or go online here.
