DIY Shower and Bathroom Benches

Contrary to popular belief, shower stools aren’t just for the elderly! In fact, they’re trending back into the average home in a very big way because they’re so convenient. They’re great for shaving your legs, setting things on, enjoy a good, hot steam after a long day at work, and so on. That’s why, in our upcoming DIY bathroom renovation, we’re considering including one! To prepare for it, we’ve been on the lookout for all kinds of different DIY shower bench options and info.

Are you feeling just as curious about the process of making shower benches as we are, if not more? Check out these 13 awesome shower bench tutorials that we’ve come across so far in our search for inspiration and guidance!

Do you have the space for some kind of shower bench in the end of the shower you currently had, but it certainly isn’t the kind that’s a whole separate piece of furniture with legs? In that case, we think you might get along much better indeed with something like this wall mounted folding bench that slots right between the walls and can collapse downward. My Urban Orchard shows you how they made this one from teak wood.
