Why consider a shower recess for your new bathroom

Shower recesses are recessed shelves designed into the cavity of a shower wall, generally encompassing the entire shower cubicle.

These nifty little nooks are the perfect place to store shampoo, conditioner, body scrubs and body washes, without cluttering the floors of your shower cubicle.

They’re definitely becoming a must-have in many new bathroom renovations in Perth, throughout Australia and seemingly, across the world.

A convenience like no other

Shower recesses and shower niches have definitely come into fashion on their own in recent years.

As a dedicated Perth bathrooms company, we’ve found they’re one of the most requested and popular shower features every homeowner wants.

Gone are the days of exposed shower shelving in modern display homes, as people are choosing time and time again to combine storage practicality with a style statement.

We absolutely love the uncluttered feel of recessed shower (and bathroom) storage, and the perfect height in which you can have a shower recess.


Setting the scene for style

With a shower recess, you will truly set the scene for style.

We’ve put together some of our style favourites to add to your design inspiration.

  • For a harmonious and organic look, a neutral wall tile for your shower complemented with a shower niche utilising the same tiles, will work wonders.
  • Or, you can consider highlighting the shower recess as its own style statement, made possible by highlighting a tile colour which will complement or contrast with the shower’s main tile colour.

Dare to be bold? You can even choose a different shape, colour or utilise glass tiles in your quest for bathroom creativity which blurs the boundaries, but maintains style.


An attractive addition

Shower recesses are an attractive addition not just because of their style setting or their practicality.

In fact, they save much needed shower floor space, meaning that your soap bottles will also cease the build-up of grime and dirt which potentially compromises your water drainage capacity, too.


Value-adding versatility

Shower recesses have endless versatility in their look and style.

For example, you can choose your pick from square or rectangular shapes and the height and width is customisable, too.

Here are some popular choices that embrace versatility:

  • Three tile squares vertically beneath each other, up the wall
  • One statement square or rectangle in a double shower.

One lesser known fact about shower recesses is that they’re don’t have to be used solely for the shower. Recesses in the walls near baths are an excellent, stylish storage space, too.
