As you remodel your shower, you’ll discover that there are many options available to you. One option is shower seating. If you want to have a seat in your shower, then you’ll want to select one that fits your needs best. Let’s get into the types of shower seats available, and whether they are the best fit for your replacement shower.
Built-In Shower Seats
If you want a shower seat that’s built into the shower itself, then this might be the option that you want. These seats typically have the same color scheme and pattern as the shower wall or base to create a seamless, low-profile appearance. Some built-in shower seats are made in the corner of the shower, while others are constructed as a shower bench. With both of these options, the seat is mounted into wall studs for optimum strength and stability.
Fold-Down Shower Seats
Do you want a shower seat that can be stored out of the way rather than fixed in its place? If so, then a fold-down shower seat is a great option. As the name suggests, these seats can be folded up to make more room in your shower when the seat is not needed. These seats are also easy to lift and lower. If installed correctly, they can also hold a considerable amount of weight.
Transfer Shower Seats
Transfer shower seats straddle the tub rail for safe transition into the bath or into the shower space. These safety seats can also be taken completely out of the bath or shower, which can be an advantage if other family members need to use the same bath. This is a cost-effective solution for those with mobility issues. The portability is useful when working with on-sight caregivers as well.
