Ok so I read about the golden ratio, but in the end I went for every day practical. I didn’t want any soap or razors on the floor so I had niches made for all my shower products.

Is adding a niche to a new bathroom design a huge cost?

Good info here. Here's a non-niche question for the designer/tile pros: we're considering large 12x24 white porcelain tile on the vertical for our shower stall, floor to ceiling. Concerned that this design might be too trendy for a simple beach condo. Of course, clean white porcelain is always classic no matter the direction.. Your thoughts?
