Explore the Different Types of Shower Seats for SeniorsJun 01, 2021
Far too many individuals struggle with safety and accessibility within their homes, especially when it comes to the shower. A bathroom remodel can help, but it can also be a costly, time-consuming, and downright messy endeavor. If you’re searching for a solution, Jacuzzi Bath Remodel has the answer: shower seats. If that sounds too good (or just too simple) to be true, consider just how enjoyable your shower experience would be if you could remain comfortable the entire time without the worry of a slip-and-fall accident. There are a few different types of shower seats, each with their own individual benefits. These include:
Standalone Shower Chairs
Some homeowners with walk-in showers choose to purchase a standalone chair, allowing them to take it in and out of the shower as desired. However, the portability of these products makes them less stable than some other options. It also means you’ll have to find somewhere to store the chair should you choose to remove it from the shower at any point, and the various materials these chairs are made of means it may require some attention to keep clean.
Fold-Down Shower Seats
A folding shower seat is the perfect way to save space and add built-in comfort, especially with top-of-the-line options from Jacuzzi Bath Remodel. Our movable shower seats allow you to customize where you sit, and we can even include a movable showerhead as well for complete freedom. With an ergonomic design, these shower seats provide the ultimate level of safety and comfort.
Bench-Style Shower Seats
Another shower seat option is a bench-style seat, which is essentially a ledge built into the shower. This type can’t be stowed away or folded down like other options, but it is wider and if not being used as a seat, it can be used to hold toiletries. Because it cannot be hidden, however, this is not the best option if you plan on ever placing your home on the market.
Additional Jacuzzi® Bathroom Ideas
While adding a shower seat is a great way to improve the safety and accessibility of your bathroom, it isn’t the only way. Jacuzzi Bath Remodel provides an array of bathroom safety features that can improve your quality of life, including:
