Shower niches are a key feature in today’s bathrooms, providing a discreet, stable and reliable storage solution for soaps and shampoo bottles. So say goodbye to using the floor or corner of the bathtub for this purpose. Shower niches take care of this problem and enhance your bathroom by creating a beautiful focal point in the shower area.
To help you decide between the possible designs, we present a selection of shower niche ideas that will make the most of the space in your bathroom. Take a look at these options, and you’ll be ready to tackle your next renovation project today.
Niches do not necessarily have to be a statement. If you are looking for a modern and minimalist design for your bathroom, use the same tiles throughout to create a calm and seamless transition from the recessed shower niche to the wall. Colours like grey and brown are popular in shower areas, as are stone or wood finishes.
Niches are also great for playing with patterns, introducing textures and mixing colours thanks to the use of mosaic tiles. In this picture, the design and construction firm Next Stage Design + Build has combined a classy metal mosaic with natural finish tiles, achieving an outstanding result.
You can make the shower niche as big as you want, and even use the whole wall to maximise storage space. This is an attractive option for both small and large showers. So there’s no excuse to add this element to your bathroom during your next renovation project. It also adds a sense of depth to your shower and makes it appear larger.
If you want to show off the shower shelves more, place a slim light fixture at the top or bottom of the niche to create a pleasant lighting effect in the room. This way, you create an eye-catching focal point.
As you can see from this picture, geometry plays an important role in home décor, including the shower area. Placing shower niches on either side of the wall creates a sense of balance and harmony that is perfect for relaxing in the shower. Whether this is more practical or not is up to you to decide.
One feature that requires special attention is the frame that defines the shower niche, with the decorative metal profile being one of the best solutions. However, there are many more options available. We offer a wide range of finishes, from high-gloss chrome profiles to matt profiles, and even profiles with built-in LED lighting that can withstand direct contact with water. Make an appointment at your nearest store and let our experts advise you on the type of profile you should use for your project.
