Adding a Bench to Your Bathroom

Looking to remodel your bathroom in Miami? You’re not alone. The bathroom is one of the areas where a remodel can add the most value to your home. It’s also an area where a little bit of creativity can go a long way. 

Today, we want to discuss bathroom benches: why homeowners love them, what materials they’re made of, and where they can be placed. We hope this helps you determine whether a bathroom bench is suitable for your home!

The Benefits of a Bathroom Bench 

  • Comfort – When spending time getting ready in the morning, it can be nice to sit on your bathroom bench instead of standing in front of the mirror the whole time. 
  • Accessibility – Some people have difficulty standing for long periods of time. A bathroom bench makes it easier for them to sit. Shower benches are essential in this scenario. 
  • Convenience – It's very easy for a bathroom bench to also act as a table. If you’re running out of counter space, it’s easy to set items on the bench.
  • Design – Some benches can completely transform the appearance of a space, making a bathroom look cozier and more inviting. 

Bathroom Bench Placement 

Of course, you’ll also want to determine where to place your bench. The optimal positioning will be determined by other features of your bathroom. For instance, if you have a beautiful window view, you’ll likely want to position the bench so you can appreciate that view. 

People with bathtubs may choose to place the bench right next to the bathtub.  This way, you’ll have a comfortable place to dry off. If you want to sit while doing your makeup, you’ll want to place the bench within view of a mirror. 

If you choose to get a freestanding bench, you’ll also be able to easily reposition it how you’d like. If you choose a bench that attaches to the wall, it’s much more important to determine the placement is exactly how you’d like it to be. 

Instead of a regular bathroom bench, some homeowners like having a shower bench, which provides additional space for toiletries while also allowing you to sit in the shower. This can be extremely important from an accessibility standpoint.
