    What should you pay attention to when choosing the right bathroom stool?

    When choosing the perfect bath stool or shower stool, there are some important questions to answer:

    What do you mainly want to use the stool for?

    Depending on the intended use, you should consider different criteria when making your selection:

    For the daily routine: If you want to use the stool mainly for your morning or evening routine, you have the largest choice, as basically all stools in our range offer a well-thought-out design, high-quality materials and a comfortable seating option.

    As a shower stool : If you need a stool for the shower, look for non-slip legs and water-resistant materials such as Corian or acrylic. These stools are especially practical for the elderly or those with reduced mobility who need a safe place to sit in the shower.

    As a seat for children : If the stool is also used by children, it should be stable, easy to clean and safe. Heavier models with rounded edges and a child-friendly height are ideal.

    Should the stool be more than just a place to sit? Are you thinking about using the stool as a shelf, storage space or laundry basket? A stool with an integrated laundry basket or additional shelf is very practical here.

    Materials: Properties and Benefits

    Choosing the right material for your bath stool or shower stool is crucial to ensure it is durable, easy to maintain and aesthetically pleasing. Here are some of the most common materials, their properties and what to look for when choosing:

    Stainless steel:

    • Features : Stainless steel is sturdy, rustproof and resistant to moisture. It is also scratch-resistant and durable, making it ideal for use in bathrooms.
    • Advantages : Easy to clean, hygienic, timeless and modern design.


    • Features : Corian is a non-porous, velvety material that is resistant to stains and scratches. It is easy to clean and hygienic.

      Which bathroom stool suits my bathroom decor?

      Compatibility with your bathroom decor: Choose a stool that fits well with your existing bathroom style. A modern stool made of acrylic or stainless steel can add an elegant touch to a contemporary bathroom, while rattan or reclaimed wood stools blend better with a traditional or rustic decor. But they can also add a natural and warm style to modern bathrooms.

        Where do I want to place the bathroom stool?

        The optimal placement of a bath stool or shower stool depends on the conditions of your bathroom:

        Next to the shower : A shower stool offers a practical place to sit while drying off or getting dressed after showering.
          In front of the sink : A stool in front of the sink can serve as a seat while applying make-up or during daily care. It should be easy to move and save space.
            Near the bathtub : A stool near the bathtub offers additional comfort and can be used as a storage area for towels or toiletries.
              For more storage space : Stools with an integrated laundry basket or storage area can be placed near the washing machine or bathtub to provide additional storage space and order.

                Conclusion: How do I find the right bath or shower stool for me?

                A bathroom stool or shower stool is not only a practical place to sit, but also a stylish and versatile piece of furniture that gives your bathroom a special touch.
