Shower Niche

This bathroom was part of a Master Suite addition to a home on Chicago's North Shore. It was created by award winning Normandy Designer Vince Weber, who kept with the existing traditional style of the home throughout the master bathroom design process. This recessed shower shelf utilizes otherwise wasted space and adds decorative elements to this walk in shower as well.

How are the marble shelves secured in the shower niche? Thanks.

The shelving in this niche is attached like any other tile, and the surrounding wall tile helps to hold this piece in place.

Thank you so much for responding! I am having a tough time selecting a countertop that has the look I am going for. Most granites I have seen are too busy - I love the look of marble but have heard maintenance can be high. Is this true? I saw a beautiful quartzite, Taj Mahal, which I was told is even more durable than granite but the price was triple that of granite!

Marble is a beatiful option but it is more porus than Granite which means that it will need more attention and consideration than some other options. If you're looking for some lower maintenance options, you may want to look at Silestone or Cambria. These man made options are virtually maintenance free, made up of natural stone that is held together by resins, and can offer a similar look to natural stone without the hassles. Good luck on your project!
