There’s no doubt that shower niches are very practical and offer lots of advantages. The most obvious of all is that you get storage in a much more stable and reliable form than in other cases. No more using the floor for all the shampoo bottles, soap and everything else or balancing all these items on the corners of the tub. Shower niches take care of all these problems and they’re also really versatile and adaptable.
You can actually make the shower niche as big as you wish and even have it wrap around the room, connecting adjacent walls and adding color with its contrasting tiles. This white and blue combo is really fresh and beautiful.
There’s a variety of materials to choose from for the shower niche. These stones look really great here, given the type of tiles used for the shower. In addition, the niche has glass shelves which are almost invisible.
Because they’re so basic and so versatile, shower niches look natural in just about any kind of shower. So whether you have a Roman shower stall or some other kind, there’s no need to give up on including this practical feature in the design.
Walk in showers can easily accommodate niches but the design has to be well thought through. So place the niche at the right height from the floor so you don’t have to climb on stools to reach it and also so that kids can safely use it.
Depending on the size of the shower space, the niche adapts its size as well. This one is small, with only two compartments. Make sure you measure the shampoo bottles and everything else you plan on storing else so you don’t end up finding out they don’t fit.
