I like to put the shower controls on a side wall of a shower stall--not under the shower head--just inside the entrance, so you can reach in and adjust the water without getting all wet.

I love adding niches to shower spaces as well. There is a level of functionality that a niche offers the bathing space, as well as helps to enhance the appeal of the bathing space. Your dimensions for placing the niche in the case of the bathtub and shower are right on the money. When I am deciding on the height of the niche, I also like to take into account my clients’ height, as well as the height of the shower or the bathtub. Considering my clients’ height is crucial when dealing with clients that suffer from a particular handicap. In such instances, I endeavor to ensure the niche is just at the right, most convenient height for them.
