Shower bench built-in vs add-on

Any opinions on the bench inside the shower. I am considering a built-in (typically the one that is on the opposite end as the shower fixture) vs an additional piece like a teak/bamboo stool.

Some advantages I see for the built-in is a clean look with tile that matches the rest of the shower.

Some advantages I see for the additional piece is that it can be moved to the center of the shower if you want to sit during the shower. It also typically comes with storage at the bottom. Easy to change in a few years if you need a different look.
