The luxury of designing your own bathroom is that your opportunities are endless. Within reason, depending on budget and space. Most people don’t realize how nice and convenient a built-in shower seat is until they have one. And then they wonder how they’ve lived without it for so long. In this blog post we are talking about built-in shower seat options and what to consider when you are designing your bathroom.
We’ve discussed in previous posts how glass shower doors help make spaces look larger. When you walk into a bathroom the shower is the main focal point, and the eye is drawn towards the design of the shower. The tile layout, fixtures and functionality of the shower presents that your bathroom design was well thought out. A shower seat serves several purposes like a spot for shaving legs, a seat to relax in, and a place for toiletries. The universal benefits are convenient yet simple.
Benefits of a Shower Seat
Convenience – a shower seat allows you to easily prop your leg up for shaving, store toiletries or just sit and relax while the steam fills up the shower walls.
Relaxation – release the stress of the day by relaxing in the shower. A lot of people don’t like soaking in bathtubs, so shower seats are a perfect way to relax while enjoying the cascading flow of the water. A perfect way to unwind from a busy day.
Aging – as we age and become less flexible and mobility becomes challenging, a shower seat is very helpful. By adding a few additional features like handrails and anti-slip mats, the shower seat is a smart choice. Think long term when designing your shower and also think about aging parents and guests.
Spa-like Feel – give yourself a real spa-like feel with aromatic scents in your bathroom like eucalyptus. A functional shower seat helps achieve that goal. Positioning your shower seat close to the faucet allows you to adjust the temperature conveniently so you can sit comfortably and relax.
