Westridge Master Ensuite - West Vancouver modern bathroom
 

Westridge Master Ensuite - West Vancouver

We built this shower niche and incorporated a side lit shelf to act as the bathrooms night light. This little shelf gives off a great white glow thanks to warm bright white LED's and the use of Starphire (low Iron) glass.

In the entire bathroom this one feature is my clients favourite! I'm glad they let me talk them into installing it.

A large porcelain tile 30cm x 60 cm (12" x 24"). Not sure the exact brand name.

John Whipple - By Any Design ltd. added this to How to Pick a Shower Niche That's Not Stuck in a Rut
A niche installation often depends on the tile choice and how the edges of those tiles look. Many times we miter the edges of the tile to eliminate the plain edge that many tiles have.Here's an example of mitered tile corners. The top shower niche was built larger and then divided with a glowing shelf of starfire glass. Tip: Starphire glass scratches easier than regular glass. Take extra care cleaning and working with this glass.
John Whipple - By Any Design ltd. added this to Finishing Touches: Pro Tricks for Installing Fixtures in Your Tile
The tile pro who tiled this shower drilled a perfect hole for the shower hose. These holes are drilled very close to the edge of the tile, which is hard to get right. Tip: When drilling holes so close to the edge of the tile, make sure that the tile is protected from vibration damage. Fully support the tile while drilling and press down to keep the tile from vibrating.More: How to Choose Tile for a Steam Shower14 Power Tools for the Home Shop

Here's an example of mitered tile corners. The top shower niche was built larger and then divided with a glowing shelf of starfire glass. Tip: Starphire glass scratches easier than regular glass. Take extra care cleaning and working with this glass. I think odds tend to look better than evens in showers — groups of three, not two. Tip: Make sure you measure your favorite shower products. A nicely designed shower niche is great, but if your shampoo bottle of choice does not fit, it won't be of any help. If you sit on a bench, you probably want to access to your stuff. Keep things in reach and plan the niche placement to work for you and your kids.
