Shower niches can always become a great feature to add in your bathroom. Mostly, they are a great one to add storage space in the room without having to create such an unappealing bump that may prevent you from creating a seamless and unobstructed look in your bath. In addition to that, you can also embrace the recess in a truly stylish manner that absolutely will also influence the look of your bathroom space at the same time.

In your bathroom a shower niche will easily serve as a catchall to hold all the shower essentials, such as bottles of soap, shampoo, and conditioner. This recess is typically open with no door or cover, so all the stuffs sitting there are always reachable whenever you need them. This is why a shower niche will always make a highly useful feature in a family bathroom, just like this one with shower. If the bathroom is also used by your kids, be sure to adjust the height of the niche so they can still reach it.

As we have briefly mentioned before, the shower niche can help you boost the storage capacity in your bathroom. In addition to that, you can even do this without having to take up more space inside, unlike what usually happens if you decide to install a cabinet or a shelving unit.
Due to the design, a shower niche is recessed so you can still manage to avoid any unsightly obstruction in the room. This is why such a small alcove is highly popular in a smaller bathroom with a small shower room!

Bear in mind that your shower niche can basically any shape. Although the square and rectangular ones make the most common options, it doesn’t mean they’re the only one. The same also goes for the size and height of each shelving unit included in your shower niche. If you have taller, larger bottles, be sure that you have enough room for them.
