Bench and stool ideas for bathroom and tranquility

Martha Taylor-Brown |
Having a bench or stool in the bathroom can be very nice. It adds a space to sit on but it also adds a nice touch to your bahtroom design.


If your bathroom is small, and you just want a hint of tranquility, bring in a rustic stool. Rustic typically means made out of wood, which is perfect for those who want joyful touch in their bathroom. There is something about having wood in the bathroom. It opposes to the cold feel of tiles and brings a touch of nature. Furthermore, pair it with a rustic bench to truly make a difference. But, what's even more interesting and dramatic, mix it with stone for a sleek approach.

What's outside, may be inside. Though most of us would consider having a bench on the outside, not many would consider having a bench on the inside. However, we are here to say that having a bench inside is not only convenient but it is just as relaxing. Sometimes you want to sit down in the shower and just have a moment, and other times you want to soak up the steam. You can do both when you have a bench inside of your shower.

One of the best things you can get for any room is added storage. Not only does it enable you to bring additional items without having to be in the spotlight, but it forces you to make use of what you already have. It’s a good solution for all when you can have what you need while still adding to your decor. Having an ottoman is great for those who want the additional storage space without having to take up too much space. It may sound a bit unusual but it works very well.

Why have one chair when you can have two? Consider having two stools or two benches or both of them, or even both of them, and allow them to be scattered around the room. Although this might be grand contrast, it’s perfect when you can’t decide what you want, but you also don’t want to leave anything out. Furthermore, this enables you to get creative with the stools you have. This is a solution good for larger spaces but that doesn't mean you can't try it in a smaller bathroom too.
