Shower seat dimension????

jbrazmaniaFebruary 7, 2013

We're still in planning stages of our MB remodel and are thinking of putting in a shower bench. We have some wiggle room in the dimensions of the shower. We're replacing a small shower stall that's currently in the room and taking over space that is now a linen closet. We want to put a cast iron base (4 feet) and then a bench at one end. What should the height of the seat be? How deep should it be? I'm attaching a rough plan of the shower walls but I just stuck in some guestimates for the bench dimensions. Thanks!

A few years ago, I did some research and found the height is best 16-19 inches, depending on taste. Ours is 17 high x 14 deep x 34 wide, and it is comforable and practical. The total shower is 34 x 72. If the shower were 5-8 inches shorter, it would still be OK.

A smaller shower (58x28 has a corner bench that is 18 inches high. Also OK, but I pefer the 17 inch heght. You need to be explicit with contractor as to exact "finished" height you want.
