Niche shelves? - What did you use for the shelves in the niche? I am looking for something thin that is not glass. Also, if you happen to know the height of the smallest shelf, I would appreciate it. I am wondering how many inches I need to allow for soap? Thanks and this shower is lovely!

Hi greengirl3,
First, thank you for your question. The shelves themselves are basic shower niches which have been tiled using the homeowners selected tiles. (Marble Systems Avenza- 12x12 cut to fit.) The spacing is 12" for the top 2 shelves and the bottom 2 are 6". The depth is approximately 4". We hope this was helpful!

I've attached an example of one of our showers with a bench that can also be flipped up and out of the way for anyone who may also use the shower but not need the bench. What specifically are you wanting to know about handicapped bathrooms?

This is beautiful...How does the marble hold up in the steam shower though? I heard its more difficult to maintain

I thought you should not use marble in a steam shower because it is too porous--this was from an HGTV program I saw last week, actually. The designer told the client he could not use marble if he wanted his shower to be steam; The client went with porcelain or ceramic tile instead.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Whipple - By Any Design ltd. added this to Top 10 Tips for Choosing Shower Tile
2. Think about how it will feel. A slab feels nicer to sit on than smaller tile, and a curved edge will feel great on the back of the legs. Sitting on a shower bench with no eased edge can be hard on the backs of your legs. Plan to use a slab or a tile that offers up a bullnose or a radius edge for your shower bench.
