3. Drainage for the shower niche
With water splashing all around, it’s no surprise that shower niches can hold moisture. To avoid creating a stagnant pool, make your niche angle forward so it sheds water properly. The niche tiles should tip out toward the shower and in the direction of the drain.
1. Location of the shower niche
Homeowners have flexibility to customize the location of the niche to the space. Looking for lots of storage? A niche can wrap around the wall, connecting to adjacent walls. Prefer something subtler? Position your niche on the smallest wall of your shower.
In addition to considering the wall placement of the niche, it’s also important to think about height. Be mindful of placing the niche at the right height from the floor so you won’t have to reach too high or low to use your bathroom products.
If you’re installing a niche in a shower/tub combination, position the niche so you can access bath products easily whether you’re taking a bath or a shower. In a family home, a slightly lower height will allow kids to reach everything safely.
Bathroom tile tip
When choosing tiles, be aware of how the tile will fill the shower niche space. Ideally, the tile will fit symmetrically around the niche for a clean look. Need professional shampoo/soap shower niche? visit our store at
Benefits of a shampoo/soap shower niche
Costumers who opt for a shower niche see many advantages; the most obvious is storage. Who wants to see their bath products on the floor or unorganized in a corner? Niches give your shampoo, conditioner and other items a home.
Another advantage of opting for a shampoo/soap shower niche is in the design. A shower niche can catch your eye and add flair to the shower while accentuating the bathroom’s overall look. It’s also a chance to repeat a unique tile or pattern used in the overall design. Want to make your niche a focal point? Try adding contrasting tiles.
Shampoo/soap shower niches can be considered art in an otherwise empty space. When niches highlight a shower design, their seemingly understated presence gives the shower a bolder and more beautiful end result. When designing your niche, however, there are three important details to consider.
2. Size of the tile shower niche
Once you decide on the location of your shampoo/soap shower niche, it’s time to finalize the size of the cubby. Homeowners should measure the tallest of their favorite bath products and make the niche at least 1-inch taller. This way you can ensure everything fits perfectly in the new storage space.

If you don't have the budget for a new tub or would rather just have a walk-in shower, then a shampoo/soap shower niche is a great compromise. These niches are reasonably priced and can be installed as recesses in the wall of your shower with tiled mosaics.
Shampoo/Soap shower niches are important so that you don't have to have bottles on the ground of the shower or on the edge of a tub. Soaps, shampoos, shaving cream, body wash, and other products can be tripped over, and if they are on the floor, then their liquids can leave a slippery residue.
Are you tired of tripping over half-empty shampoo bottles when you are mid-shower? You could install a cheap wire basket to sit in the corner or hang from the shower head. But then it’s only a matter of time before the wire starts to accumulate unsightly rust spots.
