25 Ideas on How to Add Seating in the Bathroom

For people out there who have tons of space in their bathrooms, this list will be a great option for you; truth be told is that seating options for the bathroom is not really for everyone’s spaces since if you have a smaller space adding a chair or stool in your bathroom may mean more cramped which may cause traffic inside; this is not road traffic, you know what I mean.

Below is a list about the ways you can decorate your bathroom with stunning chairs, stools and arm chairs that sometimes come with a wonderful vanity or just a stand-alone chair beside an awesome bath tub. The designs of the bathrooms below are either traditional, transitional or contemporary spaces – I am sure that you’d love this list because I sure did!

Always consider your curb a potential tripping hazard. A curb set with the same tile as the shower and bathroom floor can be hard to see for someone with a visual impairment. Choose a contrasting tile color to avoid this danger.

Although this pretty bath has a wintry feel, with its many shades of cream and white, it’s in Arizona. The room opens up to an adjoining stone patio with a set of narrow folding French doors.

20. Prospect Heights Townhouse

Even a small bathroom can benefit from a piece of furniture. This antique Chinese bench fits well against an open wall. Set a plant on it or just leave your clothes there while you shower.

If you are going to repaint your walls, upgrade your tiles or invest in new cabinetry, it’s always a good idea to keep to a neutral palette for these larger elements, as it will appeal to more buyers. If you want to add some fresh color, use towels and accessories.

I have one bathroom here that I really love – and I actually wish I’d have one soon; I sure hope that you liked this list not only because of the awesome designs that each space have, but also with the feel you get if you see them because if you actually feel good about a certain space it usually feels the same way when you are inside one awesome bathroom – best room after the bedroom – well that’s for me!
