Adding quality shower benches in the bathroom achieves two things. First, they give you a place to seat in the bathroom. Whether you are shaving your legs or applying makeup, sometimes you may need somewhere to seat in the bathroom to get all your grooming done. A shower bench may also be an excellent storage area for shampoos, oils, and other important bathroom essentials. Most benches come with a shelf underneath for extra storage. These benches are also incredibly stylish. They can go a long way in giving your bathroom that unique and updated look that you’ve been looking for. The benches feature a wide range of materials and finishes as well.
15 Recommendations and 0 Ideas
Corner Shower Bench
What we like: Convenient corner design will save space
What we don’t like: Can’t fit as many items
Not so great for: Open showers
Perfect for: Smaller bathrooms
An ideal solution if you have a tiny bathroom, this bench has a useful corner design. Naturally space-saving, you can slot it in the corner of your shower or next to your sink. Due to the shelf beneath, you can store shampoo bottles and other shower essentials without them getting in the way. The rich brown color is versatile and will match any bathroom décor, from bright bath mats to classic neutrals.
Plus, the stainless-steel hardware used not only offers long-lasting durability but is non-corroding, too. You won’t have to worry about a damp or rusty smell over time, either, as teak is naturally water-resistant.
Small Shower Bench
What we like: Compact size
What we don’t like: Narrow seat limits functionality
Not so great for: Taller people
Perfect for: Confined shower spaces
Measuring just under seventeen inches wide, this shower bench is slim in width. This makes it a brilliant choice if you have a compact shower space. Crafted from bamboo, it is finished with a soft lacquer for a subtle sheen. Moreover, the natural wood grain lends it a carefree tropical look. Although the weight capacity is 200lbs, the seat is relatively narrow, meaning we wouldn’t recommend it for taller or larger people.
However, the wide gap between the shelf and bench gives you the opportunity to store fluffy towels. Additionally, there will be no more tripping over awkwardly-sized conditioner bottles, as you can stack and store neatly due to the open sides.
Curved Shower Bench
What we like: Curved seat will offer comfort
What we don’t like: Paint will chip over time
Not so great for: Bathrooms with minimal wall space
Perfect for: A stylish yet practical shower bench
Skid-resistant to prevent any slipping when you’re shaving or rinsing suds out of your hair, this bench has a sophisticated curved look. Crafted from water-resistant teak, it features a chic wood-plank design. Due to the not-too-modern or old-fashioned vibe of this bench, it’s a good all-rounder for both contemporary and more traditional bathrooms.
Available in five colors, including white or weathered gray, you can customize this bench to your bathroom, too. The subtle distressing and wood grain is included with every color for an accent touch that suits the environment. Even better, this stool can be used outside for those hot summer days.
Stool Shower Bench
What we like: Understated design
What we don’t like: No storage included
Not so great for: If you need support when sitting
Perfect for: Wall showers
Different from the others on this list due to its shape, this shower bench is simple and minimalist. It’s a good choice if your shower is built into your bathroom and has no specific area. Its narrow design will slot in easily to a small space. Made from natural teak, meaning you won’t have to worry about mildew or damp, it is inspired by compact and innovative Asian furniture.
We would not recommend this stool if you need support when sitting. Due to its design, there is no shelf included, which could also be an issue if you don’t have much storage space. However, adjustable foot pads are included to offer stability when showering.
Rustic Shower Bench
What we like: Bigger size can store more
What we don’t like: Shelf is narrower than seat
Not so great for: If you’re on a budget
