A shower niche was a must in my bathroom gut remodel. You know when you decide to gut a space, you create a must have list? Well, one of the many on my bathroom remodel was to install a shower niche. No more soap or shampoo bottles sitting at the edge of the tub ALWAYS falling and no more meaningless soap shelves that are just not big enough to hold anything, even a bar a soap. So, when I was searching for contractors my first questions was, "can you add a niche?" And yes, some contractors said, "cannot guarantee it" or simply "no," and it was at that exact moment I moved on to the next contractor.
As you may be following, we have gutted the bathroom and now it is time to re-build.
