Teak vs Tile, Freestanding or Fixed shower bench
We are debating whether or not to build in a bench in our master shower that will be about 44" x 60".
We've have been planning to use either an 18" shelf-type bench in one corner or a corner bench with full tile sides.
Before we commit to the plan, however, I am wondering if we would do better with a teak bench.
If we go with teak, how will it look in a couple of years? How do you clean it? Does it have to be treated to keep its fresh look?
Again, if we go with teak, should we attach a fold-down bench or use a small freestanding teak stool? I've not cared for the appearance of many fold-down benches. Does anyone have pictures of stylish teak benches or stools? Even if we find one that looks good new, will it still look as in a couple of years, or will we be wishing we had gone with stone or tile?
