For such a small space, your bathroom can be extremely hazardous. Whether you slip and fall on a wet floor or on the tile in the shower while you’re washing your hair, it’s really no wonder that so many household accidents occur in the bathroom. Fortunately, having a bath and shower combo with a bench inside can make your bathroom safer, bathing more enjoyable, and several other benefits. Here are just a few reasons to consider using a shower with a bench:
More Comfortable Experience
How many times have you stood in the shower and wished that you could just sit down and let the water pour over you? With a bench in your shower you can do just that. You’ll have a more satisfying, comfortable experience all around. Whoever said that showering should just be functional only? You should feel free to enjoy your shower and let it be restful and relaxing. By having seating in your shower, you’ll be able to relax and unwind.
Improved Post-Bath Routines
After you get out of the shower, you may have your robe, towel, and clothes that you’re changing into across the bathroom or in the adjacent room. This may result in wet floors and a chilly sojourn to get your towel and/or robe. With a shower bench, however, you can sit in the shower until you dry off in the warm steam or wrap yourself in your towel or robe and wait until you can step out without risking getting the floor all wet and slippery.
Get More Use Out of Them
Have you ever been in the shower, shaving your legs, and wished that you didn’t have to bend over? Do you have to try to balance on one foot while you’re washing between your toes or the pads of your feet? Having a bench in the shower is useful in that you’re able to prop your leg or foot up on the bench while you take care of business.
If you are or know an elderly adult, sometimes simple things such as taking a shower can be more of a handful than they used to be. Having a bench in your shower can make things safer. If you’re unable to stand for longer periods of time, a bench is the best option.
More Practical in Every Way
Not only will a shower bench make your life easier and your shower experience more enjoyable, but it’s much more practical. A shower bench is more than a place to sit down and relax. It’s also great for extra storage when you need it and creates more usable space in the shower, because you can sit down and store things in the provided shelves or underneath.
Having a walk-in shower with a bench is a great idea for many reasons. Not only does it transform your bathroom space into a more useful and practical area, it can also make your daily bathing experience more spa-like and enjoyable.
