As you plan the space, try to come up with a design that keeps the major plumbing lines in place. Moving the toilet from one wall to another will mean relocating a 3-inch drain line in a home, which can cost thousands. “If you can keep the toilet, shower, and sink where they are, you'll save significantly on the project,” says Petrie. The do-it-yourself approach can be an effective way to trim costs, but it's best to focus on the front and back ends of the project, say, ripping out the old tub during demolition and handling the finish painting. Leave the more complicated installations to professionals, ensuring they're highly skilled. “A good tile setter can make a low-cost tile look expensive,” says Goltz. “On the flipside, you could spend a fortune on tile, and a bad tile layer will make it look cheap.
In spite of their permanence, shower niches are not the type of feature you'd want to replace often anyway and that almost always makes them desirable in the bathroom. Wondering what a shower niche could do for you? Its usefulness is not entirely related to the idea of storage. A niche is practical in more than one way. From an aesthetic point of view, it looks simple, stylish and versatile. Add to that all the customization possibilities and you'll fall in love with the concept. We'll start off by saying that a shower niche is actually a pretty broad concept. Think of this more in terms of a bathroom niche which looks great in the shower but can also be practical elsewhere in the room, like this long one which fits elegantly above the ink and toilet. It's the work of Ardesia Design for a home in London.
A corner niche, just like.a corner shelf, is practical because it takes advantage of an otherwise unused space. This design strategy is particularly useful when dealing with a small space like this shower unit created by Perianth Interior Design for an extension of an old house in New York. Sometimes a shower niche can stand out and other times it can look very natural, like this one created for the Box House by 1:1 arquitetura:design. The niche has the exact same length as the window so it almost looks as if there are two openings in the wall. If you want the niche to double as an architectural feature and as an eye-catching decor element, a common strategy is to use tiles in a different color or style than those used for the rest of the walls. Vertical niches can emphasize the height of a space which is useful not only when you're dealing with a small bathroom but which small enclosed spaces such as shower units.
