What is a bathroom wall niche?

When Nu-Trend meets each new client to discuss their bathroom renovation ideas we listen to all different interior design choices they have thought of or are trying to create. Where possible we make sure you will avoid the renovating mistakes we see other people make. We also make sure we spend some time sharing sharing new ideas or the latest renovating trends so that we can get creative together.

In the past few years one of the things many people have chosen to have installed is a wall niche.

A bathroom wall niche is essentially a nook in the wall where shower or bath products can sit without using shower hangers or other devices to hold them. It also becomes the perfect place to store bathroom essentials in a clean, tidy way without needing extra cabinetry.

What shapes and sizes can a wall niche be?

When you are doing a complete bathroom renovation in Sydney it means the room is stripped back to the frame of the room. This means a wall niche can be built into the new build and be done in any size or shape you like. Below are some examples of square, rectangular, full length or even shelf wall niche installations. 

How can you install a wall niche?

Whether it’s a renovation or new construction, wall niches are a great way to create more space in your bathroom. A niche or shower shelf is easy to install and offers the perfect place to put your bathroom utensils too. It is incorporated into the demolition and room preparation phase of construction, typically built within the wall stud spacing. A wall niche can be placed high, low, as a square or along a wall or even creating a small shelf.

Here are some of our recent bathroom renovations in Sydney that Nu-Trend has completed. The majority of the projects we are contracted for are complete bathroom renovations where the room is completely stripped so that the flooring, walls, tiling and waterproofing is installed brand new.
