Shower bench - I love this bench, but how hard is it to keep it this color? I don't like the gray color teak gets with aging so perhaps I not get one?

Your best bet is it let the water naturally lighten it over he course of about 8months to a year (depending on usage) and then apply some teak oil which can be bought for as little as $10. This will re-darken the wood and it should then keep for longer. Remember if you are going to fold away your seat, it's important to wipe it down occasionally as it won't naturally dry out as well when folded against the wall.

Can you provide a close-up of the niches so that I can see how the tile was laid?

want the glass shelf on one side; because of size of space, would like insert to be double, with the other side tall for the taller items; all in tile, and out of way along wall next to shower head end of shower

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to 8 Ways to Design a Better Shower
Shower benches can also be made to fold up to be out of the way as well.
A place to rest. A shower seat isn’t just a comfy place to relax; it can also be support for shaving your legs. For a small shower where you don’t want to have the seat permanently taking up much-needed floor space, consider a folding bench, which runs a few hundred dollars. As with a grab bar, you’ll want to make sure a folding bench is securely attached to the wall.
