Bench in the shower -- yes or no?
We're remodeling our master bath and will have a 42" wide x 52" deep tiled shower. We need to decide if we want to have a 12" deep granite bench situated along the short wall opposite the shower door. If we give the go ahead, the finished shower floor space will be 42" wide x 40" deep.
At this point, we're not sure that we'll use the bench (granite is chilly to sit on!), but wonder if age or a medical condition in the future will make us glad to have a built-in bench.
Also, looking at re-sale, is a bench in the shower something buyers find attractive?
Your input would be appreciated!
