A shower niche is not only highly functional, but it can also add to the design and aesthetic of your bathroom space. It really is a must-have if you are renovating your bathroom.
When planning a shower niche there are several things to consider to make sure your shower niche turns out perfectly.
These are all important questions that should be considered at the very beginning as they will influence the outcome of the niche you create.
The foundations are often overlooked for the more exciting parts of a renovation or new build, like choosing the tiles, but they are probably the most important part. It is vital that the tanking of the wet room is installed correctly to keep everything watertight and ship-shape. We at The London Tile Co. recommend the Ardex WPC Tanking System for your wet room. This tanking system will help protect the background from water damage and leaks, allowing you to relax and enjoy the other parts of the project.
Deciding how big your shower niche should be is an important part of the planning and there are a few factors to consider. Firstly, think about what you want to use your niche for; if it’s just a razor or sponge then it doesn’t need to be large, but if you have big bottles of shampoo you want to store it is worth measuring them to get an idea of how big you need it to me. Another option is to have more than one, either stacked one on top of another or lined up – or maybe at different heights for different shower users – the options are endless! When thinking about size you should also start to think about tiles – a small niche will be hard to tile with larger pieces so keep that in mind.
Once you’ve considered all the important questions and made sure your foundations are solid, then comes the best part – picking the tiles! Whilst we at The London Tile Co. may be a little biased, we believe that picking out your tiles and designing a space which is unique to you, truly is the highlight to any remodel or new build.
