I know this is a little off the main topic, but I think it may help those who have a similar layout as we designed for our MB remodel. When the contractor was laying out our built-in shower bench I asked if I could build a box that would be accessed from the other side of the bench for storage, otherwise it was wasted space. The toilet was next to the shower separated by the kneewall. I asked what were the maximum dimensions I could use, measured the typical size of a roll of toilet paper, calculated to have the max number of rolls to fit in the box and then built it. It now holds 24 rolls of paper, no more calling for help!


Storage space was maxed out when we gave up a linen closet to build a curbless shower.

Don’t forget to add a hand held shower head to reach the bench. Don’t see it in the first photo.
