Bathroom Accessories & Aids
The addition of a shower seat can help to make the process of showering or bathing easier and improve safety in the bathroom.
This wide range includes wall-mounted and free-standing shower seats to suit your requirements. They are available in various sizes and finishes to meet different comfort and support needs.
Providing comfort as well as minimising the risk of slipping or falling in the bathroom, a secure shower seat offers a greater upright and supported position when using the shower at home.
Durable and designed to assist older people or those with disabilities, they help the user feel safe and comfortable in the shower.
Wall-mounted shower seats can be easily installed to adapt the bathroom at home for improved safety and self-assurance, or a free-standing option can be used when needed to offer extra assistance.
Frequently asked questions
What's the purpose of a shower seat?
The purpose of a shower seat is to help those with limited mobility to safely access and use their showers. Sometimes, people with disabilities, or those in older age, might have reduced balance or struggle to stay standing for long periods. A disability shower seat can promote comfort, independence, and peace of mind.
What kind of shower seats are available for those with disabilities?
We have two main options when it comes to our disability shower seats. There are freestanding options, and for those who require a further level of support, we also have wall-mounted shower seats. You don’t have to have a disability to benefit from our shower seats, however. Our shower chairs are helpful for all sorts of situations, including those with injuries or older people with reduced balance.
Will I be able to sit down inside the actual shower enclosure?
Those with limited mobility may understandably prefer to sit down in the shower – our range of shower seats can help facilitate this, providing a comfortable place to sit inside your shower enclosure while bathing. The right option for you will depend on your space but our experts can help advise during a home visit.
Will the shower seat slip?
Our shower seats are designed to be completely safe and secure in the shower. They include rubber feet at the end of the legs to provide stability and the sitting surface is designed to prevent water from pooling on the seat itself. Wall-mounted seats provide even greater support.
Do I have space for a free-standing shower seat?
To help you determine whether you have room for a free-standing shower seat, taking the right measurements is important. Our expert installers will arrange a free home visit, examine your shower and advise if a free-standing shower stool will fit in your space.
Is a wall-mounted shower seat suitable for enclosed showers?
Every shower is different and whether a wall-mounted shower seat will be suitable for you depends on your own unique situation. Wall-mounted shower chairs can be great options for enclosed showers and one of our expert technicians can advise on what is suitable for your shower.
