How a Teak Shower Bench Can Change Your Mornings Forever

Ah, the shower. It's where we go to cleanse our bodies, relax our minds, and belt out our favorite tunes. How can the shower experience really get any better? Enter the teak shower bench, the ultimate in showering luxury. 

Why teak, you ask? Well, my dear reader, teak wood is basically the Superman of shower bench materials. It's naturally water-resistant, so you don't have to worry about it warping or cracking over time. Teak contains natural oils that repel water, making it the perfect material for wet environments like the shower.

Plus, it's incredibly durable, which means it can stand up to daily use without wearing down. And let's not forget about sustainability - teak is one of the most eco-friendly wood options out there. It's often grown in sustainable tree farms, and because it's so long-lasting, it doesn't need to be replaced as often as other types of wood.

So, now that we know why teak is the best option for shower benches, let's talk about how it can enhance your showering experience. First of all, let's acknowledge that sitting down in the shower is a game-changer. Not only does it make shaving your legs a breeze, but it also allows you to relax and enjoy the hot water without worrying about slipping or losing your balance.

And if you're someone who likes to take long, luxurious showers, a teak shower bench is a must-have. You can sit back, prop up your feet, and let the stress of the day wash away.

A teak shower bench isn't just a practical addition to your bathroom, it can also elevate your decor. Teak wood has a warm, honey-colored hue that adds a natural touch to any bathroom. And because teak is such a high-quality wood, it has a timeless elegance that will never go out of style.

But the benefits don't stop there. A teak shower bench is also a great place to store your various shower accoutrements. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash - you name it, it can all be within arm's reach while you're standing, or while you relax on your bench. And speaking of relaxation, a teak bench can actually turn your daily shower routine into a spa-like experience. Just imagine settling onto your bench, letting the warm water wash over you, and taking a few deep breaths as you bask in the knowledge that you are living your best life.

Beyond the obvious luxuries for everyone, shower benches are often a vital part of life for folks with mobility issues or injuries.

Of course, we can't forget about the aesthetic appeal of a teak shower bench. It adds a touch of elegance to any bathroom, and because it's made from natural wood, it has a timeless quality that will never go out of style. Teak wood develops a beautiful patina over time, which only adds to its charm.

Now, I know there are plenty of shower bench options out there. Won't a teak shower bench be more expensive than the plastic options out there? Yes, it's true that a high-quality teak bench can be a bit more of an initial investment. But consider it an investment in yourself. We all deserve a little luxury in our lives, and a teak bench is a small but meaningful way to treat ourselves. Plus, because it's so durable, it will likely last you for years, making it a cost-effective choice in the long run.

There are a few different approaches to Teak shower benches, but we have two favorites that we carry here at Wooden Soul. The first is the floor standing type, with its smooth curved surfaces and handy bottom shelf area. And the second is the slightly more expensive type, the wall mounted shower bench. Our wall mounted shower benches are fairly easy to install, and the rewards are well worth it. 

At the end of the day, a teak shower bench is one of those simple but powerful ways to enhance your daily routine. It's both practical and beautiful, and it can make your daily shower a truly enjoyable experience. So go ahead, treat yourself to a little bit of luxury.
