Teak bench in marble shower?

kam76June 25, 2013

I am thinking of having a folding teak bench mounted to the wall in my shower. I am going to have 4x8 carrera marble tiles on the shower walls and a porcelain mosaic hexagon on the shower floor. Are there any issues with teak staining or dripping on the tiles? Just wondering if anyone has noticed this.

I've never had a problem with teak, I've had two benches in marble showers for coming up on 20 years.

I installed an ADA rated bench and it was Ipe (Brazilian walnut) with stainless steel. I would worry about the metal quality first though as they can rust and stain.
