Are you planning a bathroom remodel now or in the near future? Does your dream remodel include a shower where you can spend your time luxuriously? Have you suffered a knee or back injury in your past that still makes standing for long periods, particularly in the shower, uncomfortable? Well adding a bench to your walk-in shower is a chic, attractive way to give yourself a place to sit during your shower while increasing ease of use.
Built-in benches are a popular feature among women who find themselves frustrated by the inability to shave their legs without slipping around the shower. The benefits of a bench are that you can sit and shave more easily. Either way, you have more access and decrease your risk of slipping.
Also called a shower seat, a buit-in bench allows for utility for anyone in your family who may have dealt with an injury in the past or may still be dealing with the repercussions of one now. Skeletal injuries often take years to heal, and the benefit of an attractive seating option in the shower is being able to take advantage of the healing powers that a shower’s heat have to offer, while still allowing your body to rest.
