Teak Shower Seat – how to get them cheap

Updated on September 9, 2010

Many people love the Teak Folding Shower Seat because of it's versatility; it can be used in the shower and conveniently folded up and stored when not in use.

A teak shower seat is one of those rare things that you normally see in a magazine picture of a luxurious modern shower.  Now how many times have you thought to yourself “That would be so nice in my shower”?  Teak shower seats not only look beautiful but they also are functional; providing a place to sit and relax or recover while you’re in your nice steamy shower.  While there are other shower chairs out there, teak is a natural luxurious choice, and I’ll show you how to get the best price.

Teak wood is actually a tropical hardwood tree that mostly exists in Southeast Asia.  It’s been used for years to build ships because it’s naturally water resistant.  So it makes sense that you’d make a shower stool out of teak.  The nice thing about using teak wood for shower chairs is that the wood takes a stain very well and can really complement a bathroom that has many earth tones.  It’s way more appealing than a plastic shower chair, and more comfortable too.  Not to mention, that teak shower chairs are naturally resistant to things like mildew and won’t absorb any shampoo or shower gels.  In fact because of the resiliency of teak you’re shower stool will last for years and years, which in itself is a great value.

But before we can go scouring the internet to find the best prices on a teak shower seat, we should really examine what your needs are and how much space you have in your shower.  When it comes to teak shower furniture you have a lot of options.  There are many types of teak shower seats, such as the folding teak shower seat, a teak corner shower seat, a bench, chair or even a stool.  One company, Hammacher Schlemmer, makes a shower chair that has a foot stool so that you can easily shave your legs.  Now whether you’re looking to get a teak shower bench or just the seat will probably depend on how much space you have in your shower.  Many modern showers are built larger and can accommodate a large bench (which can be nice for those romantic showers for two), but if you’re shower is a little smaller you may need to consider getting a teak shower seat or perhaps a corner seat.  If you’d like to have the option of having a seat or not, the folding teak shower seat is great because it provides a convenient way to free up some space without having to put the seat somewhere else.  Besides freeing up space, these folding seats are nice because they are easy to use and accommodate your needs.

So once you decide which shower seat you would like, it’s time to look for cheap teak shower seats.  The first place to look is on places like Amazon and eBay.  These websites will give you a good idea of what the “going rate” is.  Because these large retailers are so well established and sell in volume, they’re normally going to be your best bet.  But the real key to finding the best prices is to look around at all of the retailers you can find.  Every so often you’ll find a crazy sale, or off spec item that is just loads cheaper than any other online store.  While many of these deals can seem too good to be true, a little bit of investigation will provide you with the best prices on teak shower seats.
