Showers come in different types and kinds such as rain heads, body sprays, and handhelds to mention just a few. If care is not taken, you might be carried away to have all these in the different bathrooms but you need to put the cost of acquiring them into consideration as well as the cost of plumbing and fixtures that come with it.
A Resting Place
You must be aware that a shower seat is not just a comfortable place to relax but also double as a support for shaving your legs. For a small shower where you do not want to have a permanent seat taking up much floor space, you might consider a folding bench, which costs about a few hundred dollars.
Do you enjoy shaving in the shower?
Many people have found the shower to be the best place to shave. If you are one of those who share this sentiment, you might want to consider spending some extra dollars to add proper lighting, razor and shaving cream holder, and a fog-free mirror.
The perfect place for your Makeup
Do you normally stand at the vanity to apply your makeup? Would you prefer to have a place to sit so you can enjoy making up and looking good? You might want to consider having a makeup desk. With this piece of furniture, you can have a bigger mirror and all your cosmetics stored neatly and at hand. Another option is to integrate the makeup desk into your vanity, which will require you to take cognizance of the height difference. A vanity for an adult is usually about 36 inches tall and a makeup desk is about 30 inches. You need to put all these into consideration when you want to integrate both into one.
A Place for the Reading Materials

It has been stated that the BEST SEAT in the home is where many people do some reading. You can actually be creative and add a place for those magazines, newspapers, books, etc. in the throne room. This is relatively inexpensive and keeps the room tidy.
