Constructing Bathroom Niches
mythreesonsplusoneApril 1, 2013
To Yanic Simard: I love your design. With a professional contractor, I am having a very small bathroom renovated. I need niches. Regarding the contemporary niches: I love the clean edges in your photo. While it is an aesthetically pleasing look, has something been done behind the tiles (besides structural water-proof board, etc.) to prevent water from going behind the tiles through the grout? My contractor tells me, that because of the "outside corners", we have to surround the niche with bullnose tile to make it water- tight and to finish the edges. Adding the bullnose gives it a different look. I don't want to give up the contemporary look, but I certainly do want the tile job to hold up over time. What can be done to prevent future water problems? Thank you.
