When you’re planning your next bathroom remodeling project, consider easy upgrades that will make your bathroom more usable and comfortable for many years to come. Universal design features, which are meant to make a home more comfortable and accessible to people of all ages, are something we recommend considering for your renovation. One easy way to enhance the comfort and enjoyment of your bathroom is by adding an attractive shower bench in your design.
The shower bench provides comfort and an added way to relax in the shower. For older users, it can make showering much easier on the joints and can help reduce the chance of slipping in the shower. A bench can also provide a comfortable spot for rinsing off and shaving.
There are many different ways that you can design a shower bench for your bathroom. You can simply have a separate and movable bench sitting in the shower space or install a folding wood seat into the wall. We recommend making the entire shower feel unified by building the bench into the wall and by using the same tile pattern or material as the rest of the shower and sloping the design for proper drainage.
You can also choose to make the shower bench into a focal point in the bathroom by providing it with bold colors and patterns that help it stand out from the walls around it. This type of contrast is a great way to draw the eye and add visual order to the bathroom. In a smaller or more efficiently designed bathroom, you can have your bathtub extend into the shower space so that the porcelain top becomes a bench as it juts into the shower.
