Recent bathroom remodel with dual recessed shampoo soap dishes

dual recessed porcelain shampoo dishes*dual shampoo soap dish shelf niche*

Framed in non bearing wall, open area larger than needed, to hit layout. Symmetrical placement of Moen Eva shower valve, shower rod and handheld. We layed out for the niches to be centered on the accent strip at approximately eye level.

No guaranty on color match as all monitors display colors differently.

Location of your recessed shampoo soap shelf
Out of direct and indirect water spray within easy reach. The best place is right in front of you, eye level on either side of the shower head. Because the units are high, water doesn't bounce off the body, back into the bar soap areas. Normally there is only the shower head water line in the middle.

Both ceramic niches and glass tile accent strip set at eye level on shower head wall, the perfect location for toiletry niches. Matte White shown.

Installation
Before concrete boarding your shower walls note stud locations and where you intend to place the niche. Concrete board and lay tile to height of bottom of niche, then cut out 11 5/8 x 11 5/8 opening with sawzall, finish tiling. This way you cut the hole exactly where you want it.

Pictures of installation

Recessed shampoo soap dish installation niche*shampoo holder stick

Notice 1x3 siliconed to back wall, blobs on back of shelf and beads of silicone both around the inside of the opening and on the shelf itself. The trick is to have the blobs on the back just touch the back boards and not to have a lot of oozing out where the unit touches the tile. Place your jam stick checking for level, couple pieces of tape and carefully silicone the edge now or the next day.

Difficulties of custom built on site niches

Waterproofing and Hitting the layout

If a custom niche is not waterproof, rot will occur and ants or termites will appear. A custom niche should hit an even increment of wall tile to minimize the number of tiles. Smaller tile can make this very difficult even for an experienced contractor. Pictured below is a niche I made using 4 bull nose and one tile on back of a " dead on" layout. A total of 5 pieces and 5 lineal feet of grout on right picture. Grout is not sanitary, as you don't see tubs, toilets or sinks made of tile with grout.

Your contractor must hit layout . The one piece ceramic shelf above gets around these issues..

Customer Installed Shampoo Soap Pictures

Hi Mark,
 I ordered a shampoo holder from you a few weeks ago.  We installed it according to your instructions and we love it!  We are sooo glad we decided to buy this item and take the time to include it in our project.  This was our very first experience with tile work and I really appreciate the tips you were kind enough to give me by phone.  Anyhow, here are a few pics of the shampoo holder after installation.
 Take care,
 Matt

"In replacing a fiberglass shower and tub unit with ceramic tile I wanted recessed soap and shampoo holders that would save me the hassle of having to frame, board and grout.  These inserts worked perfectly as they simply dropped into the holes I had left for them with a minimal amount of caulk and match perfectly with the shower base.  Since they are ceramic and not plastic they look and feel like they were specially made to fit my space."
