There is nothing like teak. Its amazing beauty coupled with its unique charatertics make it an excellent choice for having a seat in your shower. This solution is the perfect alternative to costly and high maintence tile benches. No grout to clean! Whether you have a complete remodel or looking for a solution to rest your foot or bottom, teak benches are functional, affordable and can add a sense of stylish warmth to your bathroom.
Before we look at some of the style options, understand that teak is as close to maintenance free as you can get. It resists mold or mildew and will maintain its beauty whether natural or oil finished. To maintain the oil finished look is no different than polishing your wood furniture. Every few months simply apply teak oil to the surface of your product with a cloth. This process takes only a few minutes and will renew the finish on your teak product. Of course, at any time you can choose to let the teak age naturally. In time the teak oil will dissipate and the teak's natural oil content will continue to ward off mold and mildew.
