Episode Summary

A shower bench can elevate the design of your bathroom, particularly in a steam shower, where it may be desirable to sit and relax for some time. We have some ideas with how to include a shower bench in both a large or a small shower stall. If you have a bathtub as well as a shower, try to place the shower next to the tub and then extend the tub deck into the enclosure of the shower to create a bench. This will make the tub and shower feel more integrated. One detail to pay close attention to is to ensure that the tiled shower bench inside the shower has a slight slope to prevent water from pooling on the surface. If you have a smaller shower stall, a flip-up teak bench may be a good idea. These are wall mounted shower benches – the one shown here is from Water Works – and they look good in both the up and down position. One side note, you have to make sure that there is enough blocking behind the tile to securely support the weight of the bench. Finally, if your tile work is already complete, you may want to consider a small free-standing teak bench. There are standard and corner units available on the market. Teak is naturally water repellent and stands up well in a wet environment.moreless
