Show me your tub shelves

dhustonMarch 15, 2012

In a panic! They are supposed to start tiling my kids bath tub surround on Monday and I realized we forgot to build any niches for shampoo, soap, etc. I also didn't buy any corner shelves! Daltile makes some that match my matte white subway tile but no body has them that I can get fast enough. Any body have any suggestions on what do do? I was thinking about doing some wire shelves, which would be easier to clean but haven't had time to look just yet. Any pictures are always a help.

PS My culinarian range top came in today!! Cant wait to get home a take a look!

I bought a waterproof niche form which fit between the studs before the dry wall was in place. Then the niche was tiled. I bought my 16x16 niche at the tile distributor, but you can order them online in various sizes and shapes (just google "shower niche"). Mine cost approx. $65.00
I'd show you a picture if I can figure to how to post it.

Go by just about any tile store & pick up a niche--your tile guys will know what to do--they'll cut the backerboard and slide it in. If you'd prefer corner shelves most tile stores have them in stock & I wouldn't think it would be hard to match a matte white close enough to pass muster (so it doesn't have to be Daltile brand). Just keep in mind that the shelves that are not recessed can be a hazard--I should know, I just about knocked myself out on the ones in DM's guest bath shower.
