How a Shower with Built-In Seating Can Help Keep You Safe

For many homeowners looking to enhance a bathroom in their home with a new shower, finding one with built-in seating is key. A shower bench that’s built right into the shower itself provides a durable and functional element that can also increase the safety of the bathing space. Here’s how a shower with built-in seating can help keep you safe.

Safety Benefits of a Built-In Shower Seat

A built-in shower seat is one that’s designed into the shower enclosure itself. This built-in seating allows for:

  • Stability – Unlike a stool or other movable seat, a built-in shower bench offers better stability. It won’t move around, slide, or potentially collapse while you’re taking a shower. This is especially crucial for individuals with limited mobility or balance issues who need to stay seated rather than standing up while taking a shower. There’s less risk of slips and falls with a stable seating area built directly into your new shower enclosure.
  • Comfort – Sitting can also be more comfortable than standing, especially as you’re maneuvering around in a wet and slippery environment. Staying comfortable while taking a shower can also provide you with peace of mind about your safety in that environment.

For those planning to age in place, built-in shower seating is a smart option, especially when it’s paired with other features like safety grab bars and nonslip flooring. It can provide a durable and attractive component to your shower that can add the safety and stability you need to bathe in comfort.

Additional Benefits to Choosing a Shower Seat

There are other benefits to choosing a shower seat in your new enclosure. Many homeowners find that it provides a spacious platform for holding accessories and ensuring those items are always within easy reach. Additionally, with built-in bench seating, the seat creates a cohesive appearance with the rest of the shower enclosure, as it can match the design and pattern of the shower walls.

Choosing Built-In Seating for Your Next Shower

An experienced bathroom remodeler can help you find a built-in seat that will fit the dimensions of your new shower and provide you with a seating area that will allow you to shower in comfort.
