Teak Chairs - Perfect For Using In The Shower

Feb 1, 2008
Whether it's because of a medical issue, and accident or just age catching up, there are a number of people who can't get in and out of the tub or stand in the shower for as long as they would need to, to enjoy a good bathing experience. Over the years there have been a number of inventions to try and help to this end.

Many of them were plastic chairs that while they were effective in the beginning, still were plastic, and eventually would break down. This could be a potentially deadly situation for someone who can't get out of the shower by him or herself to be in.

Thankfully there is another option. There are now a variety of teak chairs for the shower. When it comes to durability, teak is the top of its class. When many people think of putting the words wood and shower together, they picture a chair that is going to warp and rot over time.

That doesn't happen with teak. Teak is a weather and water resistant wood. Since it's so thick with natural oils teak will not be phased by the water that is raining down in the shower. Instead of sinking in and leading to rot, that water will roll off the teak wood as it would the proverbial duck's back.

Another benefit of getting a teak chairs for the shower is that they are a lot of more attractive than plastic. While many people think you should only worry about the function of items that are needed, such as shower chairs, why not also have pieces that are attractive while they do the job?

When shopping for teak chairs for the shower, you should also look for adjustability. Some shower chairs come as is, and there is no flexibility in the fit. But, not all people are created alike. You should look for a chair that has adjustable legs and seat height. You need to make sure it can be set at a height that is comfortable for the person using it. The reason you are purchasing teak chairs for the shower is because someone needs a little help, they don't need an uncomfortable seat.

You should also measure the seat width and depth. You need to make sure there is enough space side to side for the person to sit. Too skinny of a seat that has side handles or other attachments can pinch the skin and be painful. Likewise, you need to make sure the seat is deep enough that the person using it doesn't feel like they are in a balancing act to stay on the chair.

The construction of teak chairs for the shower differs by the specifications of the chair. Make sure to look at the weight restrictions of the chair you are considering and that it is rated high enough to hold the weight of the person who will be using it.

Finally, make sure it will be safe. Check to see if the legs of the teak chairs have non-slip rubber stoppers at the bottom so they don't slide around in the shower or tub.
