Niche alternative - contemporary shelves or baskets
We finally going for remodeling our master bath. We are experienced DIY-ers and will do most of the work ourselves.
After reading lots of posts here on this forum and on the Internet, I was so upset to find out that shower and tub shampoo niches are not an option for us - we have two external walls in our master bath and niches will compromise the isolation.
What would be our alternatives considering:
1. The style is contemporary. We are aiming to sleek minimalist look.
2. We are on a budget. I've seen some cool shower shelves with a price sticker of $250-900 - do not know who can afford this, but these are not for us.
3. We will have a whirlpool tub and a shower with frameless glass inclosure - both along the external wall. The shower will be in the corner with both walls being external. We need storage for shampoo, soap, etc. for both tub and shower.
We will order custom vanity top, either granite or quartz.
I do not like glass or plastic shelves. Which leaves us with metal baskets/shelves or shelves made of our counter top materials. Or, tiled shelves maybe? Any advantages or drawbacks of these options? Any idea how to achieve a contemporary look?
If someone can post pictures of the modern solutions for this or share some ideas, it would be greatly appreciated :)
