red bench and pebble niche

red bench provides a dash of color, the pebbles at the niche add texture. The glass shelves are set in from the face of the stone tile for a clean look.

Amanda ,
The niche is 12" wide x 17" tall to the lower shelf and 14" +/- to the next shelf. I teas designed to align with the tile patter which was 1.7" tall each.
Good Luck and thank you for your interest.

Thank You---no wonder looking at the sight I couldn't find any Neon.....I think it's ok (since it does advertise it as neon) that I could ask you if you could guide me in finding any colors of neon tile....glass or ceramic.... THANK You for your kindness!!!! P.S. I'm building a house in Laguna Beach & my time to find it is almost turning into a pumpkin! :)

i contacted Heath Ceramics and they did confirm the red tile was theirs but the main wall tile was not. Can you please tell us where we can get the wall tile.

Glass shelf - Can you please explain the silicone installation that you mentioned?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Lover your shower!!! So does the silicone stick to the niche wall and the glass so you don't need to cut/drill into the niche walls to install clips to hold the glass? I assume you need to hold the glass somehow while the silicone sets. Where can you buy structural silicone?

Don't know where to get it but I'm sure a glass fabricator in your area would know. I suggest you discuss it with them and/or your general contractor.

Find a porcelain tile or other stone, there are many out there some of which can look like this. You can cut them down in size if need be, Don't install anything in a manner or a place the manufacturer says don't install it in. You are asking for issues and non warranty. I'm not really in a position to tell you what might happen but your tile installer would probably have a great idea of what could go wrong. As I said before this was not the warning I had at time of install/specification so they have had problems with it evidently - don't use it. Find something similar- there is a world of tile out there.

No these ones are not - they are sitting in a channel and are tiled in.
I am finishing up another bathroom with glass shelves and they will be held in place with structural silicone, so they can be removed if need be.
Thanks for your question

How big are the glass shelves? Are they tempered glass? I'm having a difficult time finding a glass company that can make smaller tempered glass shelves.

what type of tile?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Can a corner be symmetrical? In this case the answer is yes. The orange bench, controls, and even the stone joints in this shower create a balanced symmetry on the diagonal. Only the inset shelf is not mirrored above the corner. When seen from another angle, this bathroom is anything but symmetrical.
John Whipple - By Any Design ltd. added this to How to Pick a Shower Niche That's Not Stuck in a Rut
What a feature! This corner bench is obviously the focal element in the shower. When planning your main design points, a shower niche should not compete with your space's design. The use of glass in this niche makes for a subtler look.Tip: Glass is usually affordable. But make sure you order your niche shelving with other glass items to get the most bang for your buck. If you're using three shelves in a niche, ask your contractor to order four. It's always nice to have a backup in case something breaks.
