One feature I like to incorporate in every shower I design for a remodel is a special shampoo niche.
I love that they are useful and can be an actual feature that brings interest and design to a space with flat surfaces.
I’m so over that skinny little horizontal “banding” — I never was much of a fan, unless it was done in stripes, wide or repeated bands, or bands ran vertically. It always seemed sort of skimpy and purposeless to me: to do one little horizontal band of deco tile at eye level. It also often creates problems where that tile ends on the wall; you have to border it someway, or it just looks chopped off and unfinished.
I’ve always preferred insets, entire walls of specialty tile, or special features created with niches and benches. Even a small niche is a nice break from the surface, and it has purpose.
I’m sharing a few I’ve designed for you today, to help get your creativity going for your next bathroom remodel.
