Picking a Location
For a tub they make sense just above the tub surface, as you’ll be lying down when you reach for that shampoo, but in a shower they should be much higher, around 48 in., so you don’t have to lean down to reach anything.
A terrific niche or recess starts long before you start troweling thinset on the wall. Think carefully about where to locate the niche. Place it away from the area of shower splashing that comes heavily off your head and shoulders and hits the wall toward the front of the shower. Avoid placing a cubbyhole in an exterior wall, where the lack of insulation once you cut between the studs can freeze your bath products solid -- not the best start to a shower. Mark on your green board or bare studs the approximate height you want your niche or niches -- but hold off for now on setting the exact final point for the bottom and top shelves.
