Waterfront Dormer

Lagos blue limestone is used in tile form on the floor. The top of the shower curb is the same material in slab form. The shower floor is finished with grey etched glass tile from Ann Sacks.

I don't think we have a record of the exact measurements. The tiles were somewhere around 4x10, so the niche is likely that size. At 3 tiles off the floor, that's 12" at the bottom. We had our client decide at what height she was most comfortable, so I would recommend using personal preference rather than a specified height. The towel bar does keep the door from opening a full 180 degrees, but gets pretty close to fully open. To keep full mobility, you can build out a small return wall to mount it on rather than installing directly to the wall.

Thank you for your quick response! We are trying to minimize cuts in my large format tile, so the best look will be at the 12" height. I thought that might be the height of the niche in your photo. I am finding that I am comfortable with a range of heights. The small return wall for the shower door is a great idea. Thank you again!

What is the lovely paint color on the walls? - The combination of the gray floor, warm cabinetry, white tile and fixtures, and soft blue walls is exceptionally nice.

The bottom niche looks like a perfect place to rest my foot, so I can shave my legs. Was this the intention?

Absolutely! We had installed one like this several years prior and in the meantime had installed a lot of corner shelves at that level for leg shaving. This shower demanded a more streamlined look so the clients chose a shaving niche as the best solution.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Ventana Construction LLC added this to 10 Amenities to Make Your Bathroom Extraordinary
7. Shower niche as footrest. Shaving legs in the shower is an ongoing conundrum for women. The water cascading down washes away the soap before you can get the razor there, and there’s nowhere to position your leg out of the water’s way. An elegant and low-key solution is the shower niche — not for shampoos and soaps, but as a footrest about 18 inches off the shower floor. Another solution is corner shelves inset into the tile — a few for shampoo and one as a footrest. They can be made from the remnants of your counter stone to tie the shower in visually to your vanity. Simple and functional.

GROUT EPOZY 10. Epoxy grout. It is more expensive, unwieldy to work with and stinks. But epoxy grout has a big benefit over its sanded and nonsanded cousins: It makes it difficult for mildew to grow, and liquids have a hard time penetrating it. We have been installing it frequently in master showers and at kitchen backsplashes (where food and grease can splatter) with great results.

Humidistat fan. It used to be that exhaust fans in baths had two options for controls — the on-off switch and the timer. Now the options have multiplied, with motion detector and humidistat fans. My favorite is the humidistat — you set it to a humidity level you deem reasonable, and it will run if the humidity goes over that level, and keep running until the humidity decreases to below your set level. It doesn’t address all of the reasons you might run a fan in a bath, but it does handle the one that can make a mess of paint and other finishes: moisture. shower niche as footrest - 18" off shower floor corner shelves inset into tile
