Niche design - How did you make such square flush edges to the niche's?? Did you use a quarter round ?? Or the way the tile were set?

hello ewy222, the edges were mitered at the corners to receive each other, none quarter were used. Hope this helps.

beautiful niches - hello again. i am curious if the four SIDES (not corners) of the niches are composed of tiles with surface bullnose, or just field tiles that are mitered and eased to meet the tiles on the wall. they are so beautifully done it's hard to tell. :) thank you.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Find your niche. A great way to provide space for shampoo bottles, conditioner bottles and even things like candles is to create a niche or series of niches in the wall of a shower or bath area. These niches are a welcome alternative to a plastic shower caddy or the shower floor, and since they are inexpensive to construct, there’s a lot of value to be had.The trick to having these niches is coordinate their placement with the tiling pattern. It’ll mean selecting your tile early, not changing your mind, and having the wall framed to accept the niche.
