Add a Shower Niche for Extra Convenience
One of the most aggravating things about taking a shower is having bottles of shampoo and other products falling over as you’re trying to bathe. Not only is it annoying, it can also be wasteful. An open bottle of expensive shower liquid can empty amazingly fast if it tips over or falls. Fortunately, this is easily avoidable by adding a shower niche.
Shower Niches for Storage Space
The most common use for a shower niche is adding storage space. Niches are indented into the wall far enough to hold bottles, bath poufs and other toiletries or bathroom accessories securely. When designing a niche, make sure it will be tall enough to hold your largest containers.
Niches as Convenient Stepping Places
If you shave your legs in the shower, you may find that there is no convenient place to lift your foot. Adding a niche near the floor will provide this space as well as some extra storage area.
While all shower niches are indentations in the wall, there are many ways they can be designed. The best results come from using a tile pattern that is found elsewhere in the bathroom. This can be more shower tile, material that matches your sink backsplash, or tile that matches the trim near the bathroom’s ceiling or floor. By keeping everything coordinated, your new niche will look like it was designed by an expert.
